Excel Electronics Earns IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 QML


Reading time ( words)

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) Class 2 to Excel Electronics Inc. Following an initial audit by IPC, Excel Electronics becomes one of the trusted sources and suppliers meeting the stringent requirements of the QML 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.

Excel Electronics initially contacted IPC to review their manufacturing processes using the IPC Standard Gap Analysis (SGA). By using SGA, Excel Electronics could improve areas in the manufacturing processes and then achieve the QML from IPC.

"The IPC SGA analysis and follow-up assessment provided a thorough examination and validation that all the processes performed throughout our operation meet or exceed industry wide requirements," Chip Estep, president of Excel Electronics states. "The IPC Validation Program has improved the overall quality of all our finished products while increasing our operation's efficiency and overall value to our customers. The QML has already provided instant credibility for Excel Electronics as several global companies have contacted us regarding our capabilities since we received this prestigious designation."

IPC's Validations Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products, and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

"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," says Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize Excel Electronics, Inc. for becoming a member of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
