College Park, MD –December 12, 2007 – DfR Solutions (DfR) and A.T.E. Solutions Inc. (ATESI) announced their collaboration today. The goal of the alliance is to provide customers with a complete Design for Reliability (DfR) and Design for Testability (DfT) Solution.
“Both DfR Solutions and A.T.E. Solutions Inc. have seen an increasing interplay between the needs for testing and reliability services,” said Dr. Craig Hillman, CEO of DfR Solutions. “As a result, our customers are asking for a comprehensive design solution. Our partnership with ATESI will provide this complete solution, with ATESI providing Design for Testability services and DfR Solutions providing Design for Reliability, Design for Manufacturing, and Design for Sourcing services.”
“For more than three decades we have been advocates of solving test related problems at the earliest possible stage by involving design in the solution through Design for Testability,” said Louis Y. Ungar, President of A.T.E. Solutions, Inc. “Certainly other issues, such as Reliability and Manufacturability are closely related, and through this partnership we will be able to provide a single source solution to designers that will greatly impact life cycle costs.”
