In addition to turn-key solutions and custom functional test fixtures, our team at EMC Technologies also offers a wide range of services for specialized test solutions. Some of the specialty testing solutions we have developed and manufactured for our clients were designed to serve some of the most essential industries in manufacturing today. Military, military subcontractor, defense, and aerospace technology are just some of the projects we have worked on over the years. We have also taken on many commercial applications, including specialty testing solutions for medical devices, telecommunications, networking, avionics, satellite TV/IP, and consumer products for CCA performance verification. As a result, the experience that we have gained has also been quite varied, allowing us to create custom solutions for our customers that exceed the basic requirements.
Radiofrequency (RF) Testing Solutions
One of the areas that we have become quite proficient in working with is radiofrequency or RF testing requirements. We have developed a variety of test adapters and test stations for use with testing RF circuit assemblies and microwave subassemblies. As you might imagine, RF test adapters have unique requirements compared to the testing solutions that we use for CCA performance verification in other situations. These designs’ techniques and strategies include 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.
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. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers has also created specialty testing solutions that include the use of matched impedance traces in the printed circuit board design and radiofrequency rotary switches, power sensors, and coax switches. We are proud of the experience we have gained and the work that we have done in this field with RF test adapters for RF circuit assemblies. We also have custom designed and built wage adapters for the many radiofrequency applications we have undertaken over the years.
Custom Cables and Wiring
Some specialty testing solutions call for custom skills and services outside the normal realm of electronic test industry requirements. Our technicians have the experience, knowledge, and training necessary to fabricate nearly any type of wire or cable for our clients. All EMC technicians are certified bi-annually to the J-STD-001 standard. We can create cables that are Mil-Standard or accommodate Best Commercial Practices. Our team works with automated cutting and crimping for consistency and reliability. We can also offer specialized testing, including Hipot and Continuity, to meet our clients’ unique requirements.
Our team is experienced with most popular connections and contacts. We can also offer custom solutions that range from simple projects to the most complex fixtures. We are proud to be able to deliver superior custom wiring solutions for all of your needs. We go above and beyond to ensure that the engineering, design, and services we provide to our clients go further than the options available through most contract designers and manufacturers. We strive to provide our customers with full-service contract design and manufacturing in its true meaning, addressing each project as a complete system to help each client meet the unique demands for testing requirements.
CCA Performance Verification
In addition to these services for specialty testing solutions, including RF circuit assemblies, custom wiring and cables, and RF test adapters, we also offer complete in-house machining and metal fabricating services to assist with CCA performance verification. Our Fall River, Massachusetts facility features a professional machine shop with CNC milling centers, knee-mills, lathes, drilling equipment, and sheet metal brakes. We can fabricate nearly any machined part, ranging from simple aluminum pieces to much more complicated, tight-tolerance parts. We can even support our clients with prototyping services or run high-volume parts in-house.
