Custom Test Fixture Solutions: Wireless Functional Testing

custom test fixture solutionsCreating solutions for the electronic test industry can be challenging, especially in a world where industry developments and consumer demands are changing rapidly. Functional test fixtures must provide custom test fixture solutions in order to effectively test advanced products, components, and electronics to assure safety, performance, and reliability. Discretely wired fixtures and wireless functional testing are what we do at EMC Technologies. We design and manufacture test fixture solutions for clients that are used for performance verification of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic assemblies (EAs) for commercial, industrial, and military defense developers. Some of the industries that we have served include avionics, computer servers, medical devices, networking, telecommunications, and satellite TV/IP. Our team has also developed highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support clients who work with military, subcontracted military, defense, and aerospace programs.

State-of-the-Art Facility

One of the ways that we are able to support the needs of our clients is through the use of the advanced equipment we use at our Southeastern Massachusetts state-of-the-art facility. Working with such a wide range of industries and specialized clients helps us to stay current with the latest testing strategies. Some of the functional test fixtures that we have worked with include the development of custom test fixture solutions that include a custom backplane PCB with power and ground connections, removable access panels, redundant interface, and custom utility board PCB with additional loads and relays. We have also provided groundbreaking work in support of our clients, including support for multinational missile programs for military clients and military airplane programs.

Our facility is located in Fall River, Massachusetts, and includes a fully-equipped machine shop and electro-mechanical assembly department. Our team of engineers and technicians is capable of managing even the most demanding requirements. We seek to hire and develop the best skilled and talented individuals in the business, including mechanical, electrical, and printed circuit board engineers and technicians who can work with the latest design tools and equipment. Even our sales department includes professional sales engineers, experienced applications engineers, and technical project managers. To reduce communications issues, we assign a project manager to each client to work as our coordination and communication link between the customer and each department for efficient and effective results.

Custom Test Fixture Solutions

The electronic test industry never stops. It keeps growing, expanding, evolving, and taking the requirements for test fixture solutions to new heights. Every member of our team from the sales department on thorough testing receives continuous training to ensure that they are experts in the ever-changing technologies inherent in the industry. We take pride in the loyalty that we have earned from our customers over the years and our ability to partner with them in their test challenges. Smaller targets, faster speeds, new technologies, and increased company outsourcing are just a few of the challenges that we are facing together as the electronic test industry’s future unfolds. Our goal is to continue listening to our customers’ needs, seeking and developing the best talent available, and continually investing in technological advances.

We stock a full line of mass interconnect test products, including kits, receivers, and blocks. We sell a full line of functional test products for VXI and PXI applications and utilize Agilent, Virginia Panel, Teradyne, and other interface connectors as platforms. We supply the equipment and offer complete electrical and manufacturing support for discretely wired fixtures and wireless functional testing to deliver a complete turn-key solution for our customers’ test interface needs. This helps our clients to stay on-time and on-budget with their test fixture solutions while providing them with the opportunity to develop custom solutions for functional test fixtures, as needed. Some specific areas of proficiency include high speed, tight tolerance, test racks, RF test fixtures, and temperature. Whatever you need with regard to custom functional testing or turn-key testing solutions, you can count on EMC Technologies to deliver.
