Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, of Irvine, Calif., and U.K.-based Pickering Interfaces have formed a strategic alliance aimed at providing customers a broader range of test equipment choices.
An initial element of this program has been the creation of a joint web site, www.PXI4test.com, designed to educate automated test equipment users about the range of test products offered by both companies and to help users choose the best products for their application. The companies said the alliance combines Geotest’s expertise in Digital test, system integration and ATE software with Pickering’s catalog of PXI Switching and Signal Conditioning products. In addition to the website, Geotest and Pickering share common sales channels in much of the United States, Asia and Europe. Educational programs will also be available on the web and via regional seminars.
"Our Alliance is all about simplifying our customer’s research and providing a ‘one-stop shopping experience’. PXI4test.com provides access to products, PXI-related web sites, and other tools to educate customers to the broad range of applications supported by PXI," said Keith Moore, managing director of Pickering Interfaces.
