Reading time ( words)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries bestowed its highest corporate honors upon two member companies, Uyemura International Corp. and Honeywell. During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO the IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Uyemura and the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Honeywell. 

Named for former IPC Board Chairman Peter Sarmanian, this corporate award recognizes an IPC-member company in the printed board industry that has taken a leadership role and made contributions to the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs.

 Uyemura has been a member since 1995 and has made a large impact on IPC. Nearly a dozen of its staff members are active on approximately 25 technical committees ranging from base materials and fabrication processes to solderability and performance standards. In addition to standards committee participation, Don Walsh, Uyemura’s director of operations, participates on two IPC management councils. He chairs the IPC EXPO Tradeshow Committee and is an active member of the IPC PCB Suppliers Council Steering Committee.        

The IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was named for former IPC Board Chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the award recognizes an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that has taken the initiative to actively contribute to enhancing the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs.

 Honeywell has been an IPC member since 1964. Since that time, the company has devoted many staff members to IPC standards development. Currently, 40 Honeywell employees provide leadership and technical expertise on 50 standards development committees dedicated to topics ranging from design and board fabrication to assembly and supply chain management. And more than 1,600 staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all Honeywell locations. 

“For many years, both Uyemura and Honeywell have consistently provided staff resources to standards development and other committee initiatives. IPC as an association is privileged to have them in our membership,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO.

What follows are a series of observations and excerpts from conversations I had with some of the most interesting people I met.

The PCB Dinosaurs Get New Life at IPC APEX EXPO 2018

04/09/2018 | Dan Feinberg, FeinLine Associates, Inc.
The Order of the PCB Dinosaurs (originally called the PWB Dinosaurs—the sign of a true dino) was born because of a comment almost 20 years ago by my good friend Bernie Kessler. Back in the day, when suppliers like us became IPC members, we could only be associate members; unlike fabricators, we could not serve on the board and we could not lead key committees.
