How Wireless Test Fixtures Revolutionized Functional Testing

wireless test fixturesWhile it might be said that the consumer electronics industry is moving at the speed of light, particularly in the areas of telecommunications and computer servers, it could also be noted that the functional test industry has grown right alongside it. The need for custom functional test solutions through the use of innovative wireless test fixtures has placed increased demands on companies like EMC Technologies to help our clients to face new challenges on a regular basis. The need to meet demands for smaller targets, faster speeds, new technologies, and more company outsourcing are just a few of those challenges that we have faced head-on with our clients. Our team of highly trained and seasoned engineers and technicians undergo regular training and testing to ensure that we are ready to exceed our customers’ expectations. We work hard to seek and develop the best talent available and continue to invest in the latest technological advances and state-of-the-art equipment to help us achieve our goals.

The New Frontier

Some of the most significant markets that are currently driving the demand for faster, more targeted wireless test fixtures include 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and Wi-Fi. Test equipment manufacturers have been working in overdrive to accommodate the rapidly advancing needs of their clients through the development of custom functional test solutions. New standards, innovative test procedures, revolutionary test gear, and wireless test fixtures pave the way for designing and manufacturing high-quality products that meet or exceed industry standards. Research and development, alongside design and manufacturing, is an essential part of new technology products. EMC Technologies takes our role very seriously and takes pride in the partnerships that we have forged with our clients over the years.

New trends are motivating changes in the functional test industry. This is why we actively employ and continue to train and support our team of sales engineers, production engineers, and technical project managers to ensure that they are on the cutting edge of today’s technology needs. Our facility in Fall River, Massachusetts, includes a fully-equipped machine shop and electro-mechanical assembly department, which are capable of managing even the most demanding testing requirements. Our staff of mechanical, electrical, and printed circuit board engineers and technicians work together with state-of-the-art tools and equipment to achieve results that exceed the industry’s best standards. Our project managers serve as a communications link between the client and all of our other departments to ensure that our development projects run smoothly and efficiently for the best results.

Wireless Test Fixtures and Solutions

It is highly recommended that consumer electronics businesses adopt their own in-house testing and verification procedures to certify all changes made to their designs in the lab prior to rollout in production. This will help to reduce costs, ensure quality products are being produced, and identify any small issues before they become significant and costly problems. Taking a proactive approach to custom functional test solutions will help to reduce mistakes that could cost considerable amounts of time and money. Improvements are also made to network stability, reduction of downtime, and positive impact on the company brand. Advancements made to wireless test fixtures and the use of universal or mobile test station solutions can help businesses to stay on track and focus on production for the future.

In addition to functional testing, EMC Technologies is highly proficient in the areas of temperature, speed, tight tolerance, test racks, and RF test fixtures. Radio interference testing, radio scan testing, radio strength testing, radio insufficient signal testing, radio roaming analysis, radio coverage association testing, network WAN latency testing, and other specific types of testing should be identified and incorporated in with custom functional test solutions. Deciding between a universal and mobile test station solution should be based on the amount of flexibility and adaptation your business requirements to meet the industry needs for production.
