TUC Receives IPC-4101E Validation Services QPL Certification


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-863, TU-863+, TU-863P MF and TU-865 are now listed on the IPC website under QPL Specification Sheet 130 in addition to TU-862 HF 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 130 outlines performance requirements for copper-clad laminates and prepregs comprised of modified multifunctional epoxy resin using halogen-free constituents to provide a UL-94 V-0 flame rating. The Tg must be greater than 170 degrees C.

As a specification sheet 130 QPL product, TUC’s TU-862 HF is suitable for boards that need to survive severe thermal cycles, or to experience excessive assembly work.

TU-862 HF laminates also exhibit superior chemical resistance, thermal stability for lead free soldering assembly and CAF resistance.

For these IPC-4101E/130 certified five products, TUC met or exceeded the IPCs 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.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum

12/31/1969 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.
