When you need test fixtures, Amfax delivers with custom solutions and multi interconnect platforms by leading fixture manufacturer MAC Panel
NEW: PECture(TM) Test Fixture Interface Technology for PXI based ATE
Amfax and MAC Panel have teamed up to provide a unique WIRE-FREE Test fixture technology. We have created an alternative solution to traditional wired ITAs called PECture(TM). The name is a combination of PEC (Printed Electronic Circuit) and fixture. Using a back to back PEC arrangement inside the ITA we have been able to reduce the size of the ITA while making it significantly more reliable, rugged and flexible. Inside the ITA, one PCB board connects directly to the PXI instrumentation via the standard MAC Panel DAKs available on the SCOUT platform, the other board has system specific connectors mounted on it that allow direct connection to the UUT. Additional components can be mounted directly on to the PEC to accommodate signal conditioning, loop backs and additional routing requirements.

High quality test fixtures are critical for reliable and accurate product testing
We specialise in the design and supply of the off the shelf and custom fixturing you require to test your DUT's
Quite often our customers require test fixtures that need to meet their specific test requirements. We can design, develop and supply a full range of custom fixtures including the following:
Umbilical cable fixtures utilizing high spec miltary grade connectors
One off to type fixtures to optimize space
Combination of bed of nails and umbilical
High voltage fixtures
We partner with MAC Panel to provide the high density test fixtures you need
For test systems that require high density and high channel count connectivity, we develop our test solutions using the industry standard fixturing solutions offered by MAC Panel. The SCOUT interface makes integrating test fixtures into test system build fast and reliable. It also makes the final system easier and quicker to maintain and support throughout your full testing life-cycle
We also build systems using the popular Virginia Panel fixture solutions
Bed of nails fixtures
The traditional method for testing PCB's is the bed of nails fixture. With our fixtures we use only gold plated contacts ensuring a reliable, robust and long lasting fixture.
We can provide fixtures with mechanical of vacuum assisted actuation as well as fixtures to test multiple DUT's simultaneously. These can mount directly against the multi interconnect fixture or can be free standing with umbilical cable connectivity to the measurement instrumentation.
Any size of fixture can be provided ensuring that whatever your bed of nails requirement we can supply a fixture tailored to your exact needs. We can also supply vacumn pumps, umbilical cabling and mechanical assembly.
Self Test Fixture Units
Our Self Test Fixture Units are a useful solution for providing self test diagnostics on your new test system. The fixtures can be customised to provide the capability of a "Gold Standard UUT" meaning that you can test the functionality of your tester whenever is required. It will give you the reassurance you need that your tester is operating at maximum efficiency
When successful product testing matters, Amfax delivers high performance, fully supported test engineering solutions designed and built to your exacting specifications on time and to budget
