There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to developing functional test fixtures for advanced technology industries. At EMC Technologies, we serve clients across many different industries who require unique solutions for wireless functional test fixtures and discretely wired fixtures. We design and manufacture a wide range of specialized test solutions that are used for the performance verification of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic assemblies (EAs). Much of the work that we do is for military and military defense contractors; however, we also provide a lot of services for commercial applications, including medical, electronics, satellite TV/IP, telecommunications, networking, and consumer products.
Custom Functional Testing
We are proud of the work that we have done for our clients in the development of highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support such essential industries as military, aerospace, and subcontracted military programs. Our strong background in high-tech, essential testing development has helped us to stay current with the latest testing strategies and be on the cutting edge of the electronic test industry. A wide array of diverse clients and challenging products has helped us to increase our knowledge and experience to deliver unmatched quality and innovation for our customers. Some of the custom functional testing projects we have worked on include custom backplane PCB with power and ground connections, custom utility board PCB with additional loads and relays, and redundant interface with multiple connections to a single point.
Our wireless and discretely wired fixtures can be used to support a wide range of specialized test solutions. Our design team has also developed a variety of test adapters and test stations for the testing of radiofrequency (RF) circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies. The techniques and strategies that we employ for these functional test fixtures include dynamic designs with complete six-sided metal enclosures sealed with EMI-shielded gaskets and RF silicone to isolate the unit under test (UUT) from electromagnetic interference. Our designs have also incorporated the use of semi-rigid triple-shielded coax tensolite cables, rigid coax cables, SMA and BNC connectors, and PCBs fabricated with Rogers Material. Radiofrequency rotary switches, RF power sensors, coax switches, and matched impedance traces in PCB design are also some of the custom elements that we have included in the specialized custom functional testing projects we have undertaken.
Specialized Test Solutions
At EMC Technologies, our engineering and design departments go far beyond the basic box approach used by many other contract designers and manufacturers. We work with each customer to identify their unique needs and requirements so we can provide them with full-service contract design and manufacturing in its true meaning. We address each project as a complete system, including assessing package limitations, interfacing conditions, dimensioning and tolerance issues, environmental constraints, and mounting requirements. The more we can learn about how and where the finished product will be used, including issues with temperature, moisture, and other exposure risks and hazards, the easier it will be to develop custom functional testing solutions that will provide repeatable and consistent results.
Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers works to apply our mastery in electro-mechanical design to the industries that we serve. Industrial, avionics, communications, medical, and military markets all rely on custom functional testing and specialized test solutions to help them achieve their goals. Our expertise in this area enables us to produce manufacturable world-class designs more efficiently and effectively to save our clients time and money. We have full in-house machining and metal fabricating facility at our location, including CNC milling centers, knee-mills, lathes, drilling equipment, and sheet metal brakes. We have the unique ability to fabricate nearly any machined part, including complicated, tight-tolerance parts and simple aluminum pieces. Our team can even perform prototyping services for our clients or run high-volume parts without involving a third-party provider. Speak with one of our sales engineers to discuss your needs for design, manufacturing, and assembly, as well as full turn-key projects and build-to-print machined prototypes.
