STI Earns Recertification to IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610


Reading time ( words)

STI Electronics Inc., a full-service organization providing training services, training materials, analytical/failure analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly, announces the recertification as a Qualified Manufacturer to IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610.

To earn this recertification, STI successfully completed an intensive audit based on IPC's standards, including IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies. The company also completed an audit on the Space and Military Applications Electronic Hardware Addendum to J-STD-001, a standard focused on soldering requirements for hardware manufactured for space and military applications.    

STI met or exceeded the electronics industry’s Class 3 testing requirements, which are intended for high-performance electronics assemblies. As a result, the company continues to be listed as an IPC-trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. STI and other trusted sources of supply can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database.

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.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
