EMC Technologies: Custom Functional Test Fixtures & Much More

custom functional test fixturesThe electronic test industry has changed and evolved significantly in recent years, putting more demands on developers and manufacturers to meet certain challenges associated with functional testing for electronics, consumer products, industrial equipment, and even military and defense technologies. We work with clients across multiple industries to provide them with highly-customized interface test adapters and unit under test solutions for the parts, components, and products that they require to achieve success within their own organization. EMC Technologies has built a team of experienced, trained, and skilled engineers and technicians who have the ability to work with each client to meet their individual needs for custom functional test fixtures. However, we also offer many other services, solutions, and support opportunities to help them meet their goals.

Functional Test Fixtures

We are known for our expertise in designing and manufacturing wireless and discretely wired custom functional test fixtures. We can also offer build to print and mechanical design services to integrate hardware packaging and layout in fabricating the test systems that we create for our clients. Our customers consider EMC Technologies to be a partner in their test challenges, and we take pride in the loyalty and referrals that we have earned from them over the years. Smaller targets, faster speeds, new technologies, and more company outsourcing are just a few of the challenges that we continue to face together as the future unfolds.

Specialty Test Fixtures

In addition to developing and manufacturing custom functional test fixtures for our clients, we are also adept at creating specialized test fixtures for unit under test solutions. Radiofrequency testing is required for RF circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies. Our team has worked with our clients over the years to develop a variety of interface test adapters and test stations specifically for these unique situations, serving many commercial and industrial markets, as well as military and semiconductor industry requirements. We are ITAR registered and ISO 2001: 2015 certified, committed to providing our clients with the best possible services, solutions, and support for all of their functional testing needs.

Test Systems and Integrations

We can accommodate test systems and solutions based on each customer’s unique needs and requirements, including highly flexible test solutions that are cost-effective and easily adaptable, as well as highly precise test-specific options. Our team has worked extensively with EMI, RF, and EMC compliant test stations, including universal and mobile options for unit under test solutions. Temperature and vibration, thermal hoods and plenum interface distributions, active and passive electronic loads, load simulators, mechanical-only holding, clamping, and multi-axis stations, as well as integrated electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic stations, are just some examples of the work that we do.

Contract Manufacturing

At EMC Technologies, we offer our clients contract manufacturing in its most authentic meaning. Printed circuit board design, fabrication, assembly, and testing, as well as electro-mechanical assembly at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility, is available for those who require additional assistance and support. We go far beyond the basic box approach of many other contract designers and manufacturers, addressing each project as a complete system, including evaluation of package limitations, environmental constraints, mounting requirements, dimensioning and tolerance issues, and interfacing conditions to create more successful solutions.

PCB Design and Assembly

The designs that we create at EMC Technologies can accommodate requirements from simple, double-sided to complex, multi-layer designs. Our team can accomplish this directly from the customer’s requirements or develop the solutions for custom functional test fixtures entirely in-house. Our PCB designs are provided in either PADS or Allegro format, and we utilize the design and manufacture of printed circuit boards as an integral component of the interface test adapters that we create for our clients. By doing all of this ourselves at our Fall River facility, we are able to provide greater signal integrity and repeatability, significantly reduce debugging time and create faster, less expensive exact duplicates of interface test adapters to save the client time and money.
