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.

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.

Conventional Exposing: Direct Imaging Solder Mask

07/04/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
When you compare direct imaging of solder mask with contact exposure of solder mask, the positive aspects and the advantages are clear. Without a doubt, direct imaging shortens the throughput time and eliminates artwork production. It also eliminates the costly measurement of the panels and manufacturing of artwork with different scaling factors.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

07/01/2019 | Article by Brandon Sherrieb, Integrated Test Corporation
A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
