Many businesses across multiple industries rely on the functional test fixtures from EMC Technologies functional test division. Discretely wired and wireless functional testing provides for fully operational power to be applied to a loaded printed circuit board (PCB) for testing. To find out if the PCB performs the functions that it was designed to perform, the test used by the manufacturer often involves the use of “off the shelf” or custom built testing equipment and fixturing. Our team at EMC technologies works with each client to determine their specific needs so we can support their requirements for functional test strategies.
Custom is the way to go, especially if there is a new product or technology that needs to be tested. This can be performed while the product is still being developed, on the production line, or after production for performance verification. Discretely wired and wireless functional testing is essential to verify circuit card assemblies (CCAs) and other electronic assemblies. Unit under testing (UUT) is product testing that is performed on the product during the initial manufacture, throughout its life cycle, and as part of the ongoing efforts of a functional test division to ensure calibration and function going forward.
Radio frequency (RF) test fixtures through EMC Technologies are robust, precise, and repeatable. These are some of the words that people use to describe the services that we can provide in this area. Our cutting-edge RF test adapters and related functional test fixtures are extremely beneficial to industries that require this type of functional testing. PWB and PCB designs can also be custom designed and manufactured by our team to accommodate the requirements of the client. Whether a simple double-sided PCB is needed or a more complex multi-layer design, EMC Technologies can provide this type of custom manufacturing.
Machining & Fabrication
One of the reasons why our services stand out in the industry is that we are able to handle all of the custom design and development work that our clients require, as well as provide the machining and fabrication needed for manufacturing. Our machine shop includes CNC milling centers, knee-mills, lathes, drilling equipment, sheet metal brakes and much more. With regard to metal fabrication, whether the product testing requires cutting, bending or metal assembly, our team of experts at EMC Technologies can help. While our initial focus in developing functional test fixtures was for in providing solutions for the functional test needs of the military and military contractors, we now also work with commercial customers across multiple industries.
We believe that it is this diverse array of customers who all work in demanding climates that have pushed EMC Technologies to stay on top of the latest testing advancements and specifications. Our team is highly proficient in the areas of high speed, tight tolerance, temperature, test racks, and RF (radio frequency) test fixtures. We have developed highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support military airplane programs and multinational missile programs for our military and military contract clients. However, we have also designed wired and wireless functional testing solutions to test PCBs and assemblies for a wide range of commercial industry applications. Some of the groundbreaking work we have been involved in includes industries such as telecommunications, networking, medical, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP.
