Importance of the Electronic Test Industry in Manufacturing

Electronic test industry solutionsWhen you consider that much of the manufacturing that goes on in the world requires electronic or electrical equipment in some way, shape, or form, it becomes easy to see why the electronic test industry is so instrumental in this industry. Functional test interface equipment is needed during the design phase, throughout manufacturing, and post-production, to ensure that the product performs the way that it was designed to work. Whether a company is designing brand new products or troubleshooting existing devices, the electronic test industry is instrumental in the successful production of these products.

Consistent. Reliable. Repeatable.

These are the words that should be used to describe your testing equipment, whether you design a custom functional test with our engineers at EMC Technologies or utilize an “off the shelf” solution. If the equipment you use from the electronic test industry is not consistent, reliable, and repeatable, your testing results will not be accurate. When testing equipment is used properly, it can significantly reduce the service and maintenance that the finished product will require, making it even more dependable for the end user. The best way to be successful in the development, design, and manufacture of electronics equipment is to be proficient in the application of functional testing.

When developing a custom functional test solution, all things must be considered. This includes the electrical quantities and correctness of the unit under test (UUT) to determine the condition or defect of all the components of a circuit. Electrical quantities are essential whenever the testing or fault finding of a printed circuit board (PCB) is required. We cannot neglect the measurement importance of specifics related to the product, including voltage, current, resistance, inductance, capacitance, and anything else that applies.

What Does Electronic Testing Do?

The electronic test industry uses interface test adapters, functional test interface solutions, and other elements to create signals and capture the relative responses from electronic devices under test (DUT) and units under test (UUT) to prove the proper operation of the device and, if faults exist, to identify the trace faults in the device. In some cases, just a simple test is required to verify function and trace any faults that occur. However, there are other situations where a more complex and sophisticated test may be required. This is the advantage of working with EMC Technologies, where are custom functional test solution can be co-developed with our engineers to meet more complicated and specific demands.

Our team stocks a full line of mass interconnect test products. This includes a variety of receivers, kits, and blocks. EMC Technologies also sells a line of functional test products that can be used with VXI and PXI applications, relying on Virginia Panel, Agilent, Teradyne, and other interface test adapters and connectors as platforms. This serves as an effective turn-key solution for functional test interface needs in many instances. Our team supplies all of the equipment and offers comprehensive electrical and manufacturing support to help our customers to achieve their goals without breaking their budgets. Work with our team of mechanical, electrical, and PCB engineers and technicians who utilize the latest design tools, equipment, and techniques to help you achieve your goals.

Solutions for Every Industry

Regardless of your needs with regard to custom functional test solutions, EMC Technologies can help. As a leader in the electronic test industry, we know the various specifications and requirements that are needed to provide a wide variety of test solutions at more efficient costs. For example, the data and telecommunications industries will often require highly flexible functional test interface solutions that are easily adaptable, cost-effective, and can be used with both complicated and high-volume testing. Clients who come to us from the medical and semiconductor industries will frequently request rigorous validation and acceptance testing for devices that come from suppliers to ensure that they meet or match their internal requirements.

Other industry-specific solutions include our work for the military and military subcontractor industries. Custom functional test solutions, interface test adapters, and other electronic test industry options are developed specifically for this type of use. We work with each client to find ways to reduce costs while maintaining a high level of repeatability and consistency, co-developing the hardware and software at the same time to help meet the time, cost, and testing requirements. For those who require a wider range of test solutions that are cost-effective and save time in development, mobile computer-based test stations are a great way to go.
