Show & Tell: IPC Awards—Rewarding Tireless Efforts for the Good of the Industry


Reading time ( words)

Every year IPC presents dozens of awards to committee members for their work completing standards and specifications and for other activities within the organization. However, a few awards are extra special and presented for extraordinary efforts, for long-time commitment to both IPC and the electronics industry.

There are six award categories; four go to outstanding individuals and two recognize companies whose IPC involvement has been extensive. The awards are: The Raymond E.  Pritchard Hall of Fame Award; the Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award; the President’s Award; the IPC Rising Star Award; the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Award; and the IPC Peter Sar-manian Corporate Award.

This year, there were eight award recipients, two each in a couple of the categories. My interviews with the individuals who received these awards are presented in the following pages. This is your opportunity to get to know these people and hopefully catch their passion for and deep-seated interest in both our industry and IPC.

Q4 Concerns: Hold on to Your Hats

08/03/2022 | Shawn DuBravac, IPC
IPC Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac has plenty to share about the state of the U.S. economy and how the electronics manufacturing industry might weather the storms of high inflation, rising interest rates, and low unemployment. It’s an interesting situation to find ourselves in as the flurry of opinion on a 2023 recession starts to take shape. Does it make sense to invest in PCB fab now? And how does the rest of the world feel about it? Shawn gets to the bottom line.

Catching Up with Prototron’s Lee Salazar: Sales in the New Frontier

07/12/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
In the business world, salespeople arguably were the most affected by the pandemic. These professionals had to be the most creative when trying to ply their trade. They had to work from home, make phone calls in lieu of face to face, and learn how to use social media networks and newsletters. This was all to reach their customers—who also were working from home. Even when they got vaccinated and managed to hit the road, they often found that their customers’ doors were closed and they were not allowed inside, if their particular contact was there at all. Many times, they had to resort to meeting their customers in parking lots or restaurants with outdoor dining. And guess what? It’s not even over yet. So, how does a salesperson create success when so much seems to have changed? I reached out to Lee Salazar of Prototron to learn how he met the challenges, and his tips for others who are moving forward.

Measuring Multiple Lamination Reliability for Low-loss Materials

04/04/2022 | John Strubbe, Taiwan Union Technology Corporation
Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC) provides copper-clad laminates and dielectric resin composites used to manufacture printed circuit boards. The enthalpy of these resin composites meets and exceeds customers’ objectives and shows the deterioration of the resin’s physical properties as a result of multiple lamination cycles (up to 10X). This article describes how TUC evaluates the possible change in resin structure due to multi-thermal laminations.
