PCB Functional Test Fixtures for the Electronic Test Industry

PCB functional test fixturesThere are many benefits associated with custom product testing. This is true whether you are designing products for a particular industrial use or as a direct-to-consumer product. EMC Technologies is proud to partner directly with many of our clients to create custom solutions that will best suit their needs. We have expanded our abilities over the years and have become a world-class functional test fixturing company with a solid reputation in the electronic test industry.

Many of our clients come from the military, military defense, military contractor, and commercial industries. We have provided services for networking, telecommunications, medical, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP industries, just to name a few. However, some of the work that we are the most proud of has to do with printed circuit board testing and assemblies for a variety of applications. Some of our recent work has led us to the development of highly custom interface test adapters (ITAs), RF circuit assemblies, and other challenging functional test fixtures for our clients.

Printed Circuit Board Testing

Our staff is comprised of a team of mechanical, electrical, and PCB engineers and technicians. We work with all of the latest design tools and equipment to best meet the needs of our clients. Even our sales support group consists of sales engineers, applications engineers, and technical project managers. Our experienced project managers at EMC Tech work to coordinate communications between our customers and the various departments, including sales, design, engineering, and testing to create a single point of contact for more effective and efficient development. Continued education and training are necessary to help us stay ahead of the curve in this ever-changing industry.

When it comes to printed circuit board design and assembly, our team really excels. We can accommodate requirements from simple double-sided designs all the way to more complex and multi-layer designs. We can do this directly from the client’s requirements and specifications, or the design can be developed for the customer entirely by our team. We utilize our skill in the design and manufacturing of printed circuit boards as an integral component of the interface test adapter. This helps us to include greater signal integrity and repeatability to reduce debugging time and create faster, more cost-effective duplicates of the ITAs for our clients. Other benefits include the better organization of relays, power and ground busses, and signal conditioning components.

Functional Test Fixtures

One of the services that we are well-known for is the design and manufacture of discretely wired and wireless functional test fixtures. We use these in conjunction with our other electronic test industry products for performance verification of printed circuit board (PCB) and electronic assemblies. Some of the commercial applications that we have worked on in this area have included support for the medical and computer server industries, as well as networking, telecommunications, and satellite TV/IP. Another area where we have become extremely proficient is in the development and application of radio frequency RF circuit assemblies for our clients.

Our team has also worked to develop highly customized interface test adapters to support our subcontracted military program clients, as well as military, defense, and aerospace. We believe strongly that our wide variety of demanding customers and the challenging projects that they bring us has helped us to stay current with all of the latest testing techniques and strategies. Some of the functional test fixtures and ITAs that we have developed for our clients include a custom backplane PCB with power and ground connections, a custom utility board PCB with additional loads and relays, removable access panels, and a redundant interface with multiple connections to a single point.
