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-768, TU-872LK and TU-872SLK SP are now listed on the IPC website under QPL Specification Sheet 126 in addition to TU-872SLK 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 126 outlines performance requirements for copper-clad laminates and prepregs comprised of modified multifunctional epoxy resin system using brominated constituents to provide a UL-94 V-0 flame rating. The Tg must be greater than 170 degrees C. As a Specification Sheet 126 QPL product, TUC’s TU-872SLK is an advanced material designed with a low dielectric constant and low dissipation factor for high speed, low loss and high frequency MLB applications. TU-872SLK is suitable for FR-4 standard processing and is compatible with lead-free soldering. TU-872SLK also exhibits excellent CTE, superior chemical resistance, thermal stability, CAF resistance, and toughness as enhanced by an allyl network forming constituent.

For these IPC-4101E/126 certified four products, TUC met or exceeded the 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.

As automation works its way onto the shop floors, it still struggles to replace humans in the supporting roles, such as designers, purchasers, brokers, and back-office staff. Where automation on the shop floor replaces humans in doing repetitive manual tasks, the supporting roles (at least some of them) require intelligence to understand and utilise information.

A Guide to IPC Survey and Report Season

10/18/2017 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
IPC Director of Market Research Sharon Starr found time to discuss the recently conducted and published surveys and research reports and a few others still in the works. These reports are free to survey participants, which is certainly a great incentive for taking the time to complete them. (Hint: That’s a call to action for those of you sitting on the sidelines.)
