Radiofrequency Testing: Specialized Test Solutions for Industry

specialized test solutions for industryWhile designing and producing unique functional testing solutions constitutes the bulk of the work performed by our team of devoted and skilled engineers and technicians, some of our projects are even more specialized test solutions. Even we couldn’t have predicted how far our work with radiofrequency RF test adapters and test stations for RF circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies would have come a few short years ago. Our staff collaborates with each customer to ensure that their specific goals and expectations are satisfied for every project, from tailored testing solutions to printed circuit board design.

RF Circuit Assemblies

A complete six-sided metal enclosure sealed with EMI-shielded gaskets and RF silicone is utilized as one of the custom text fixtures and tactics to suit these particular designs in order to shield the device under test from electromagnetic interference. The usage of semi-rigid triple shielded coax tensolite cables and stiff cox cables, which are distinguished by lab, has been included into some of our designs for RF test adapters and other radiofrequency functional test fixtures. Along with SMA and BNC connections, matched impedance traces, PCBs made with Rogers Material, RF rotary switches, RF power sensors, and coax switches, we have also employed them in printed circuit board design.

EMC Technologies has been able to help our customers with their testing difficulties because we collaborate with each client to understand their specific needs and create custom test fixtures to meet all of their criteria. We have been extremely successful in our endeavors because to our many years of experience designing and producing wireless and wired functional test interface equipment to test PCBs and assemblies for a wide range of applications. We have been able to stay at the forefront of industry technology and innovation by extending our clientele beyond the military and military contractors to include commercial customers in the fields of telecommunications, networking, medical, computer servers, satellite TV/IP, and consumer products.

Wired Functional Testing

The design and production of printed circuit boards is one of the value-added services that EMC Technologies can provide its customers. In order to guarantee high-quality testing and consistent, repeatable outcomes for our custom test fixtures, our team offers printed circuit board design, fabrication, assembly, and testing as part of our contract manufacturing services. We provide our customers with full-service contract design and production in the truest sense, going well beyond the simple box strategy used by many contract designers and manufacturers. We approach each project as a whole system, taking into account factors like mounting needs, RF test adapters, dimensioning and tolerance challenges, interface circumstances, and package restrictions.

Our expertise in printed circuit board design can be applied to modest requirements for a straightforward double-sided PCB up to far more complicated and multi-layer designs. The interface test adapter is made entirely by our team, including the design and production of printed circuit boards. The benefits of implementing it this way include the possibility to produce identical ITAs for a lower cost, superior relay, power, and ground bus organization, a shorter debugging time, and better ease of maintenance for high-volume testing as part of a connector saving adapter card. You can rely on our team to support you in achieving your objectives when you require specialized functional testing to address specific difficulties in the testing environment or with the unit under test (UUT) itself.

Specialized Test Solutions

Your custom test fixtures and special testing requirements can be met with the help of our team of highly skilled and experienced engineers and technicians. When fabricating your test system design, our functional test fixtures can use build to print and mechanical design services to integrate hardware packaging and layout know-how. To isolate the UUTs from any form of electromagnetic interference, we use engineering design for MIL-standard and the best commercial applications available in the market, along with discrete wiring, wireless interface test adapters for CCAs and electronic UUT assemblies, and RF test adapters for RF shielded ITAs.
