DFI Earns IPC Qualified Manufacturer Listing Certification


Reading time ( words)

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to DFI Inc., a supplier of industrial computer embedded solutions based in Taipei, Taiwan. To earn the QML, DFI successfully completed an intensive audit based on two of IPC's foremost standards: IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies; and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies.

DFI met or exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry's most rigorous classification, Class 3, which is intended for high-performance electronics assemblies. As a result, the company is now listed as an IPC-trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. DFI and other trusted sources of supply can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database, click here.

"We are honored to be the first company in Taiwan who provides embedded computing solutions certified under the IPC QML Validation program," said Oskar Wu, DFI's senior manager, product planning division. "This certification not only recognizes our professional competence, but also represents our commitment on providing quality products and services to our customers."

IPC QML/QPL validation is a program based on IPC standards, which provides validation and certification of product quality and production technology for companies in the electronic industry supply chain.

"Different from other audit programs, IPC's Validation Services Programs uniquely provides technical and in-depth assessments of products and processes in accordance with IPC standards," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize DFI Inc. as the first company in Taiwan to become a member of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

11/20/2019 | Phil Kinner, Electrolube
While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.
