DfR Solutions Announces Partnership with BQR.

Agreement Includes Software Collaboration, Joint Marketing and Sales

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- DfR Solutions, a leader in quality, reliability, and durability (QRD) research, testing, failure analysis, product problem-solving and consulting services based in Maryland, has joined forces with Israel-based BQR Reliability Engineering. BQR provides software tools and consulting services for reliability, availability, maintenance and safety (RAMS) and Integrated Logistic Support (ILS). As part of the agreement, DfR will act as a United States distribution channel partner for BQR's software, BQR will represent DfR's products in Israel, and both companies will share software architecture to develop reliability solutions.

"The synergy of BQR's and DfR's products and services make this an ideal alliance," said Dr. Craig Hillman, CEO and managing partner of DfR. "Both companies have unique expertise in design for reliability. BQR's fiXtress program is the only software on the market that allows circuit designers the ability to quickly and effortlessly assess the electrical stresses on each and every part under a variety of conditions. DfR Solutions is one of the only organizations worldwide that is able to use this information to help mechanical designers and reliability teams identify potential issues during design and perform comprehensive physics-of-failure based reliability predictions, including component and interconnect wearout. By sharing our tools and knowledge we will be able to provide designers, manufacturers, and users of electronics the ability to economize their resources and reduce time to market while still maintaining, or improving, a high degree of customer satisfaction. We look forward to jointly expanding each other's market, and to collaborating on DfR's upcoming reliability software, 'Sherlock,' which will be introduced in late 2007."
