Reading time ( words)

George Hsin, Chief Strategy Officer of Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC), is pleased to announce that TUC has gained certification to IPC-4101E validation services for three more products. TU-933, TU-933D and TU-933E are now listed on the IPC website under QPL Specification Sheet 102 in addition to TU-933+ which was the first product so listed. To earn the QPL, TUC successfully completed an intensive audit based on IPC's foremost standard on base materials for laminates and prepregs: IPC 4101 Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards and passed the qualification tests at Microtek Laboratories China, an IPC Validation Services approved independent test lab.

Specification Sheet 102 outlines performance requirements for copper-clad laminates and prepregs comprised of modified polyphenylene ether using brominated constituents to provide a UL-94 V-0 flame rating. The Tg must be greater than 185 degrees C.

As a Specification Sheet 102 QPL product, TUC’s ThunderClad 3 is an advanced material designed for high speed computing, telecommunications, radio frequency super low loss field applications. ThunderClad 3’s electrical performance is competitive with PTFE-based, hydrocarbon-based very low loss materials, but capable for high layer count circuit board design with excellent thermal reliability. ThunderClad 3 laminates also exhibit excellent moisture resistance, improved CTE, superior chemical resistance, thermal stability, CAF resistance, and are also compatible with modified FR-4 processes. 

For these IPC-4101E/102 certified four products, TUC met or exceeded IPC's Validation Services QPL requirements for producing materials used by printed circuit board manufacturers in the electronics industry. Thus, the company is now listed as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. TUC and other trusted sources of suppliers can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database.
