February of 2017 Miraco was audited and passed with no findings the first part of ISO 9001:2015 certification. This 1.75 day audit focused on the Miraco South facility which is located in Tijuana Mexico. During the audit all applicable standard requirements were reviewed, investigated and found to be compliant with objective evidence found by the auditor.
Miraco, Inc. South Operations Manager; Ricardo Mendoza stated “We have spent many hours educating our employees about the new standard while maintaining the importance of complying to both the 2008 and 2015 requirements. This was an all hands on deck situation. Communication between Miraco North and Miraco South has been flawless! Even though 5,000 miles and three time zones separate us, we communicate as if we are in the same building. Both locations processes mirror each other as well procedures. We are very proud of what we have all accomplished this week.”
Phase 2 will take place in July 2017 in Miraco, Inc. headquarters located in Manchester, NH. Upon completion of a compliant audit Miraco will officially transition certifications from ISO 9001: 2008 to ISO 9001:2015."

There, I said it. Technical Committee 111 of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is preparing to effectively ban PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) materials from electronics. As history goes, the electronics industry has focused on only two of the four halogens (bromine and chlorine) to be limited in order to be called “halogen-free” or more accurately “low-halogen.” But now, fluorine is being dragged down too, just because of its location in the periodic table.

American Standard Circuits is an industry leader when it comes to high-technology printed circuit boards, especially flex and rigid-flex printed circuit boards. So, it was natural that they would write about flex and rigid-flex for I-Connect007’s new “Guide to…” e-book series.
