Custom Functional Test Options: Printed Circuit Board Testing

printed circuit board testing solutionsOne of the services that we provide at EMC Technologies is to assist our clients in the design and manufacture of functional test fixtures for printed circuit board testing. The custom functional test solutions that we create are used for performance verification of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic assemblies (EAs) for a variety of dynamic industries. Some of the work that we have completed for our clients includes military, military defense, military contractor, satellite TV/IP, computer servers, networking, medical, and telecommunications. Our team has also developed highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support aerospace, military, and subcontracted military programs.

Quality Printed Circuit Board Testing

When it comes to the electronic test industry, one of the most essential services is in the testing of printed circuit boards for industry. Our wireless and discretely wired functional test fixtures can be designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of many different industries. Over the years, we have discovered that having many unique and demanding customers and working with challenging products have helped us to stay current with the latest testing strategies. For customers who must meet strict government or industry regulations and safety standards, the printed circuit board testing and solutions that we create are vital to their continued success.

Some examples of the work that we have done with interface test adapters and custom functional test solutions include custom backplane PCBs with power and ground connections and removable access panels for frequent calibration and adjustments. We have also provided our customers with functional test solutions that include custom utility board PCBs with the capacity to customize with additional loads, relays, and other specifications. We are highly proficient in meeting temperature, speed, tight tolerance, and other demanding requirements, including redundant interfaces with multiple connections to a single point.

Custom Contract Services

Another edge that we have over our competitors is our ability to provide contract services in their true meaning. Our engineering and design staff goes beyond the basic box approach used by many contract designers and manufacturers in the industry to help our customers achieve their goals. We address each project as a complete system, evaluating things like package limitations, interfacing conditions, dimensioning and tolerance issues, mounting requirements, and any environmental constraints. We apply our mastery in electro-mechanical design and experience working with printed circuit board testing to best serve the avionics, communications, industrial, medical, and military markets.

We have a comprehensive machine shop with state-of-the-art equipment designed to help us manufacture nearly any type of machined part. We can provide complete in-house machining and metal fabrication services with our CNC milling machinery, drilling equipment, lathes, knee mills, and sheet metal brakes. From simple aluminum pieces to complicated, tight-tolerance parts, we can even run high-volume parts and perform prototyping services at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility. Whatever your needs in the area of functional test solutions, you can count on EMC Technologies to help you achieve your goals and ensure your business is ready for whatever the future holds.

PCB Design and Assembly Services

When you work with our team for the design and manufacture of printed circuit board testing solutions, you get many years of training and hands-on experience on your side. The designs we create for PCB custom functional test solutions can accommodate requirements that range from a simple, double-side PCB all the way to much more complicated, multi-layer designs. Our PCB design engineers can create the designs directly from the client’s requirements or develop the custom functional test independently. The PCB designs that we create can be provided in either Allegro or PADS format, depending on the needs of the customer. We utilize the design and manufacture of PCBs as an integral component of the interface test adapter and other functional test solutions for many reasons. Our solutions can provide greater signal integrity and repeatability to allow for the manufacture of faster, less expensive exact duplicates and other strategic improvements.
