Bristol, UK, 24 November, 2014 – TVS, a leader in software test and hardware verification solutions, today announced its business partnership with ELECTRA IC. The Istanbul, Turkish-based design and verification services company has excellent synergy with TVS and the partnership creates opportunities for both companies to leverage their combined expertise to win and operate projects in Turkey.

Operating in the areas of ASIC, FPGA, PCB and IP/VIP, ELECTRA IC has experience in working with global, multinational companies, working on consumer, automotive, mobile connectivity (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS) and defence projects since 1995. The company is strong in project management, especially working on DO-254* projects that require first class management and tracing skills. ELECTRA IC also has vast remote team working experience working with global giants such as Alcatel, Northern Telecom, ST, ST-Ericsson and Ericsson.

Complementing its new partner, TVS has expertise in HW/SW test and verification and VIP solutions, and its asureSIGNTM products with respect to DO-254 are particularly apt within the partnership and its expected theatre of operation.

Mike Bartley, CEO and Founder of TVS, commented, “This partnership makes a lot of sense for TVS. We are now establishing our expertise in advanced verification as applied to DO-254. We need local partners worldwide to help us break into new geographies and ELECTRA IC is an obvious choice for us in Turkey.”

Ates Berna, Managing Partner of ELECTRA IC, added, “Our mission is to provide quality, professional services to our customers especially in HW Test and Verification with a focus on DO254. With its expertise in test and verification and its ‘asure’ family of products, TVS is the right partner to complement our professional IC/PCB design and verification services. This partnership will strengthen ELECTRA IC’s position in Turkey.”
