New Proligent(TM) 4.0 good news for OEMs developing test systems



    MONTREAL, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Averna today announced the launch of
Proligent(TM) 4.0, The Test Engineering Platform(TM) that simplifies how test
engineers develop and deploy test systems in order to keep product launch
cycles on schedule. New features consist of advanced remoting capabilities,
including data buffering and unique identifier management, as well as enhanced
compatibility with NI TestStand 4.0. These combined features reflect the
demands of today's test environment, and are designed to facilitate how design
and test engineers develop systems for eventual off-site deployment.
    Proligent 4.0 incorporates sophisticated data buffering to safeguard
against network failures and latencies. The central server limits data
transfer, releasing information only after remote station nodes acknowledge
that information has been fully received, ensuring complete data integrity.
This feature guarantees the reliability of product and test data, and improves
upon traditional methods that typically involve e-mail, remote desktop, ftp,
and engineer travel.
    The new and unique identifier management capability enables engineers to
generate a distinct product ID, such as a MAC address or serial number, for
each unit or sub-component under test. By managing the identifier centrally,
they can be produced sequentially across multiple test sites, with no
duplication. This functionality ensures that products can be tracked
independently, even when test systems are deployed to multiple contract
manufacturer or EMS provider sites. This feature is particularly valuable in
cases of multi-vendor networks, such as when MAC addresses are being issued.
    Proligent 4.0 is also updated to provide a direct Application Programmer
Interface for NI TestStand 4.0, giving seamless access to infrastructure,
asset, and context-specific information that test sequences and hardware
require.
    "Product launch cycles for electronics and telecommunications equipment
are getting shorter every year," said Roger T. Duguay, vice president of
business development at Averna. "For launches to remain on schedule, test
systems have to be developed and deployed quickly, locally and at EMS sites
worldwide. Proligent is a vital part of that process."
    The launch of Proligent(TM) 4.0 comes at a time of booming growth for
Averna. This October, the company opened a branch in Palo Alto, California-an
economic hub of Silicon Valley-to support demand for the Proligent platform.
Additionally, Deloitte 2007 Technology Fast 500 has just ranked Averna as one
of the fastest growing companies in North America.
