Geotest and EADS North America Enter High-Performance Digital Test Technologies Development Agreement

Sep 21, 2008

IRVINE (September 16, 2008) � An agreement for a strategic alliance and the joint development of high-performance digital test instrumentation has been signed by Geotest � Marvin Test Systems, Inc. and EADS North America Test and Services.

The activity will focus on evolving the capabilities of the new Talon Instruments� family of T964 high-performance digital test instruments, which was recently introduced by EADS North America Test and Services in the VXI instrumentation standard. Under the agreement, Geotest will implement the T964 in the more compact PXI industry standard form factor.

The agreement brings together Geotest's extensive PXI digital test instrumentation capabilities with the considerable experience in VXI-based digital test technology offered by EADS North America Test and Services. The accord was signed by executives of the two companies at last week's AUTOTESTCON 2008 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Geotest already is the leader in high-performance digital test instrumentation for the PXI platform, with products ranging from static digital to 200 MHz vector rates,� said Loofie Gutterman, president of Geotest � Marvin Test Systems, Inc. �Our arrangement with EADS North America Test and Services will enable us to provide our customers with even a higher performance digital subsystem that is platform-independent, allowing system designers a much greater range of options and capabilities when configuring test systems for commercial, aerospace and military applications.�

James Mulato, president of EADS North America Test and Services, emphasized the benefits of making the T964 technology available to a broader portion of the market. "Our T964 is the newest, most exciting test instrumentation product available in VXI, and provides a comprehensive solution for testing today's advanced electronic boards and systems � as well as emulating older functional test systems and digital instrumentation. We now will be working with Geotest to make this technology available in the PXI platform as well."

About Geotest - A subsidiary of the Marvin Group (Inglewood, CA) Geotest -Marvin Test Systems, Inc. is a global supplier of PXI and PC-based test products, systems, and solutions.
