Specialty Testing Designs: Complex Unit Under Test Solutions

unit under test solutionsOur design team loves a challenge! At EMC Technologies, we have created a team of highly trained, skilled, and experienced engineers who have worked together to develop various test adapters and test stations for testing complex unit under test solutions. Test stations developed explicitly for testing radiofrequency RF circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies have become one of our specialties. The techniques and strategies that our team has created for these designs have included a complete six-sided metal enclosure sealed with EMI-shielded gaskets and RF silicone to isolate the unit under test from any type of electromagnetic interference (EMI) effects. We are proud of the work that we have done in this area, as well as our custom PCB test fixtures and discretely wired fixtures. Our goal is to meet or exceed the expectations and stringent industry requirements that our clients must accomplish in order to achieve their goals.

Innovative Unit Under Test Solutions

In addition to the work that we have done with radiofrequency RF circuit assemblies, we have also had experience working with RF power sensors and rotary switches, as well as coax switches. Many of our designs have incorporated semi-rigid triple shielded coax tensolite cables and rigid coax cables, which were characterized by lab. SMA and BNC connectors, printed circuit boards (PCBs) fabricated with Rogers Material, matched impedance traces in PCB design, and a variety of other innovative solutions have become par for the course at EMC Technologies. Our team has also taken on the custom design and manufacture of wage guide adapters for the many different and complex radiofrequency (RF) applications that we have undertaken over the years.

We are incredibly proud of the work that our engineering and design staff have been able to accomplish for our customers. They go far beyond the “basic box approach” that many contract designers and manufacturers provide. Our team works to provide our customers with full-service contract design and manufacturing in its true meaning. We address your project as a complete system, providing a comprehensive evaluation of all package limitations, interfacing conditions, environmental constraints, mounting requirements, and even any dimensioning and tolerance issues. This helps us to create unit under test solutions that include everything the client needs to achieve their goals. RF circuit assemblies, PCB test fixtures, and discretely wired fixtures are just the beginning. We have many other services that we can offer to assist our clients with their testing challenges.

World-Class Designs and Systems

We consider EMC Technologies to be a one-stop shop for all of your functional testing needs. Our team offers complete in-house machining and metal fabricating services, applying our mastery in electro-mechanical design to meet the needs of many diverse and demanding markets. As a result, our experience and the machinery we have at our disposal allow us to produce manufacturable world-class designs more efficiently and effectively. Our machine shop in Southeastern Massachusetts features CNC milling centers, knee-mills, lathes, drilling equipment, and sheet metal brakes, allowing us the unique ability to fabricate nearly any machined part. Whether you require a simple aluminum component or a complicated, tight-tolerance part, our team can help you achieve your goals.

From prototyping to high-volume parts runs, we can do it all in-house at our facility. We can even support a full turn-key project that includes engineering services and assembly, as well as simple “build to print” machined prototypes. If you need printed circuit boards and PCB test fixtures, our designs can accommodate requirements that range from simple double-sided to complex multi-layer designs. All of our designs can be accomplished directly from the customer’s requirements or be developed entirely by our staff. We utilize the design and manufacture of printed circuit boards as an integral component of the interface test adapter (ITA) for a variety of beneficial reasons. Some of the most essential reasons include greater signal integrity and repeatability to reduce debugging time and create faster, less expensive exact duplicates of essential ITAs. Other benefits of these unit under test solutions include improved organization of relays, power and ground busses, signal conditioning components, and easier maintenance for high-volume testing.
