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.

Copper-filled microvias are a key technology in HDI designs that have enabled increasing miniaturization and densification of printed circuit boards for the next generation of electronic products. Compared with standard PTHs, copper-filled vias provide greater design flexibility, improved signal performance, and can potentially help reduce layer count, thus reducing cost.
