Dave Bergman on IPC and CFX

Reading time ( words)

Matties: Congratulations on what you've accomplished so far. Is there anything that we haven't talked about that you'd like to share?

Bergman: From the standpoint of IPC in Europe, when we started discussing all the activities IPC has going on in Nuremberg, we were a bit surprised ourselves. It is important to recognize the cooperation between IPC and Mesago, the organizers of the SMT Hybrid Show. We decided to piggyback on one of our professional development events. We held an automotive electronics reliability conference with 50 to 60 people at a nearby hotel and Mesago helped us with marketing the conference. Mesago was also a great help with IPC CFX showcase marketing. Further, we held six or seven committee meetings working on different IPC standards that are the European-led. All of this was going on while we had a stand at the show and a hand soldering competition. We have nine IPC staff members at the show, certainly the most active IPC event in Europe. It is great to see a positive response to IPC programs here.

Matties: That's great. It's like when I'm in China. I hear about a lot of growing IPC successes there and it sounds like things are also going really well here.

Bergman: It's cooking.

Matties: Congratulations, and we'll talk to you soon.

Bergman: Good talking to you, Barry.
