Specialty Functional Test Solutions: Radiofrequency Testing

There are many different types of testing demands and performance verification that are required in the electronic test industry. One of the areas where we are incredibly proficient at EMC Technologies is in designing, developing, and manufacturing specialty functional test solutions for radiofrequency testing. Our team can assist in the design of RF test adapters and RF circuit assemblies to support the unique needs of our clients concerning RF test systems and integration. Certain industries will require more specialized engineering support, such as telecommunications and networking, military and defense, aerospace, and medical device manufacturing. We can help clients to overcome common issues with radiofrequency testing to ensure they achieve their goals.

RF Circuit Assemblies and Test Adapters

Our design team has worked with clients to develop a variety of RF test adapters and test stations specifically for radiofrequency testing. Our work with RF circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies includes a variety of advanced techniques that include some unique strategies that we have used for this type of design. Our development of a complete six-sided metal enclosure that is sealed with EMI shielded gaskets and RF silicone to isolate the unit under test (UUT) from electromagnetic interference has helped to overcome many of the inherent issues with radiofrequency and other types of interference.

Some of our designs have included rigid coax cables, which are characterized by lab, as well as semi-rigid triple-shielded coax tensolite cables. Our team has used SMA and BNC connectors, matched impedance traces in printed circuit board (PCB) design, and developed PCBs that were fabricated with Rogers Material. In addition, we have also worked extensively with RF rotary switches, coax switches, and RF power sensors to achieve customer goals for developing precise, robust, and accurate test systems and integration. Our team also has custom designed and built wage guide adapters for many of the radiofrequency testing applications that we have undertaken over the years.

Specialty Functional Test Solutions

While our origins begin in the area of military functional testing, we have since evolved to include a client base that consists of military, military contractors, and commercial customers. We strongly believe that by retaining a diverse array of clients, our skills, proficiency, and experience in meeting their unique demands will help us to be ready to assist our other customers as technology continues to evolve and expand. We design and manufacture wireless and wired functional test interface equipment for the testing of printed circuit boards and circuit assemblies for a wide range of applications. Some of the industries that we serve include medical, computer servers, networking, telecommunications, military, aerospace, and satellite TV/IP.

Our military clients frequently raise the bar, pushing the team to stay current with the latest testing advancements for challenging products. Faster speeds, tighter tolerances, wider temperature ranges, and radiofrequency testing demands are just some of the areas where we have become extremely proficient. Our facility in Fall River, Massachusetts, features a fully-equipped machine shop and electro-mechanical assembly department capable of managing even the most demanding requirements. We continually seek out and maintain a team of highly trained, skilled, and experienced group of mechanical, electrical, and PCB engineers and technicians who work with the latest design tools and equipment to best meet the needs of our clients.

Communication is Key

At EMC Technologies, our project managers work as the coordination and communications link between our customers and the various testing departments. This helps to ensure that everyone from our sales engineers on to our design, engineering, and testing departments are all on the same page. Having projects for radiofrequency testing development of test systems and integration that run smoothly and efficiently is essential to their success. Every member of our team works together to ensure that we listen to our customers in order to help them achieve their custom testing goals. RF test adapters, RF circuit assemblies, and other essential elements of radiofrequency testing provide better results when our team is able to communicate effectively with the client.
