Designing & Manufacturing Custom Functional Test for Industry

custom functional testThe electronic test industry plays an essential role in product testing for industrial, commercial, and consumer use products. In many cases, a custom functional test is required in order to ensure that quality, effectiveness, and reliability of a product. Through the use of functional test solutions, including a functional test interface and interface test adapters, discretely wired and wireless functional test fixtures are used for performance verification. Many different types of testing can be achieved with this method, including verification of Circuit Card Assemblies (CCAs), Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), and electronic assemblies.

Multi-Stage Testing for Quality Control

Our clients come to us from many different industries. In some cases, the testing is required to meet government regulations for safety and performance or industry requirements to achieve a specific standard. However, additional functional test solutions are often needed to ensure quality control to protect the brand of the manufacturer. Unit under testing (UUT) is product testing at the first stage of manufacturing to ensure the performance of the unit or product during the testing process. UUT can also be performed during the lifecycle of the product as part of ongoing functional testing and calibration checks.

EMC Technologies works with each client to design and manufacture custom functional test solutions. We use either discretely wired or wireless functional test fixtures, depending on the need of the client. Commercial applications that we have worked with in the past include industries such as telecommunications, electronics, medical equipment, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP devices. Our team of technicians and engineers also have a lot of experience developing highly customized interface test adapters or ITAs to support aerospace, military, and subcontracted military programs. Our wide range of demanding customers and challenging projects have helped us to stay current with all of the latest testing strategies and industry requirements.

Interface Test Adapters (ITAs)

The work that we do with our clients to create functional test solutions designed specifically for their needs includes the development of a functional test interface. Some of the interface test adapters that we have developed include a custom backplane printed circuit board (PCB) with power and ground connections; a custom utility board PCB with additional loads and relays; removable access panels, and redundant interface with multiple connections to a single point. We offer contract manufacturing for printed circuit board design, fabrication, assembly, and testing, as well as electro-mechanical assembly.

Our custom wiring services can be used for simple projects, as well as for the most complex fixtures. Our team delivers superior custom wiring solutions for all of your needs, designed to work with custom functional test operations across the board. We have a team of experienced and professionally trained technicians who have the skills, tools, and know-how to fabricate nearly any type of cable or wiring to meet the needs of our clients. All EMC technicians are certified bi-annually to the J-STD-001 standard. Our custom cables are Mil-standard or best commercial practices, utilizing automated cutting and crimping for quality control and consistency. Continuity and Hipot testing, along with other optional tests are available, and we are experienced with most connections and contacts for custom work.

Custom Engineering Services

While it might seem as though EMC Technologies only works with functional test solutions, we do a lot of custom development and manufacturing for our clients. Our engineering and design team go above and beyond the basic box approach used by many other contract designers and manufacturers. We provide our clients with true full-service contract design and manufacturing to address each project as a complete system. We work with our clients for custom functional test development from the initial evaluation of package limitations to address all issues, including interfacing conditions, dimensioning and tolerance issues, environmental constraints, and mounting requirements.
