Averna partners with NOFFZ to improve European test system integration

    MONTREAL, Oct. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian-based test engineering company
Averna today revealed a dynamic partnership with Germany-based measurement and
automation firm NOFFZ GmbH. This move will promote Averna's Universal Receiver
Tester (URT) and Proligent(TM) off-the-shelf product lines in Central Europe,
and improve test system integration as well as accelerate functional testing
for high-tech electronic device manufacturers across the region.
    Combining decades of experience in making RF testing more efficient, the
partnership will help high-tech device makers better generate, simulate, and
analyze RF, audio, video, and navigation signals using Averna's Universal
Receiver Tester (URT). Clients will also benefit as NOFFZ configures
Proligent, The Test Engineering Platform(TM) for production environments where
integrated test data management is critical.
    "As Averna continues to expand its international footprint at an
unprecedented rate, we needed a partner whose depth of expertise in test
automation matched our own," said Sébastien Zuchowski, vice president of sales
at Averna. "NOFFZ was the clear choice, being perfectly positioned to
configure, integrate, and support Averna's off-the-shelf products for the
Central European marketplace. We have full confidence that this will solidify
our position in the region, and enable high-tech manufacturers to reap greater
    "We are proud to work with Averna on integrating its key technologies in
Germany and Central Europe", said Markus Solbach, head of business development
at NOFFZ GmbH. "With established tools such as Universal Receiver
Tester (URT), we see great opportunities to help RF receiver and navigation
systems manufacturers maximize their test efficiency. Furthermore, we look
forward to helping high-tech device makers integrate Proligent to resolve
common challenges of test data management, and to simplify the transition from
NPI to high-volume manufacturing."
    Averna and NOFFZ kick off this proactive partnership of technology
support and co-marketing initiatives with VIP Days in Munich, Germany on
October 8-9, 2008.

    About Noffz

    In 1989, Wilfried Noffz founded the computer technology company NOFFZ
Computertechnik GmbH. From the beginning, the focus was on fast, flexible
software and hardware development for customer-specific automated testing
systems. Thanks to a multitude of projects, these systems were developed into
re-useable platforms. Over the years, we set standards and developed
competence in the use of fully-automated test systems,particularly in
industrial image-processing, embedded design, and prototyping as well as in
house electronics manufacturing.
    Today the company delivers ready to use, computer-based measurement and
automation systems with comprehensive service worldwide. The combination of
standard technologies and products from well-known manufacturers as well as
customer specific in house developments enables an optimal cost-benefit ratio.
We have established our-selves with hard- and software solutions perfectly
adapted to the client's needs.
