Trusted Ingenuity. Proven Reliability. ℠
DESIGN & TEST DEVELOPMENT
Field failure is not an option. IEC Electronics knows the criticality of life-saving and mission critical products performing in the field. Dependable products require an expert approach to design throughout the development and manufacturing process. IEC Electronics possesses the engineering know-how and advanced capabilities to provide value-added engineering services for product design and custom functional test design to ensure your end product performs every time – all the time.
IEC Electronics has a dedicated staff of engineers who provide knowledge and expertise to design and optimize your product for manufacturing and performance.
Utilizing industry-leading tools and DfX principles, we deliver complete solutions at the concept, prototype, or production phase from complex circuit board assembly (PCBA) to full system manufacturing and assembly.

Test Engineering Services
With over 20 years average experience, IEC Test Engineers have extensive expertise defining robust test strategies.
Ranging from prototype circuit card designs to full system functional testing including cables and harness testing, our strategies are tailored to maximize test coverage and ensure that the end-product functions as expected when deployed in the field.
IEC utilizes these advanced testing capabilities combined with custom functional test services to detect and solve problems to improve the manufacturability or perform repair and depot services for those products deployed in the field over a long period of time.

Custom Functional Test Design
IEC Electronics has the proven know-how to design and build automated test equipment (ATE) that simulates the end product functionality before ever leaving our facility.
Our customer’s resources are often focused on the overall final product testing and do not have the time to define specific sub-assembly functional testing.
IEC engineers develop custom functional testers to ensure the product performance exceeds the strictest acceptance criteria for mission critical applications. These tests are often combined with environmental stress screening (ESS) and automated test reporting to ensure that the product will perform when deployed into the field.
