Specialized Coating Services’ Billerica Site Wins ANSI/ESD, ITAR Certs


Reading time ( words)

Specialized Coating Services' Billerica site is now ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 and ITAR certified. Specialized Coating Services provides contract services of conformal coating, encapsulating (potting), sub-assembly and ruggedization of PCBs used in aerospace, automotive, commercial electronics, energy, medical, military, retail and space applications.

“It is our goal to meet all certification requirements required by the industries that we serve,” stated Rick Ramirez, President & Co-Founder of Specialized Coating Services. “Our newly opened Billerica site is on track to receive its AS9100D/ISO 9001 certification by mid December 2018.”

ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 protection of electrical and electronic parts, assemblies and equipment (excluding electrically initiated explosive devices) - This standard provides administrative and technical requirements for establishing, implementing and maintaining an ESD Control Program to protect electrical or electronic parts, assemblies and equipment susceptible to ESD damage from human body model (HBM) discharges greater than or equal to 100 volts.

Damage of electrical and electronic systems and components from electrostatic discharge (ESD) represents a significant source of waste for the electronics industry, and can compromise the quality and usefulness of electrical and electronic products. A formal ESD facility control program can help reduce the incidence of component damage resulting from ESD, increase production throughput rates and minimize the likelihood of defect products reaching the market. Certification to ANSI/ESD S20.20 serves as an independent verification of the quality and effectiveness of an ESD control program.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). Specialized Coating Services successfully demonstrated its ability to comply and has registered with the State Department’s DDTC.

Combating ESD: The Silent Assassin in Electronics Manufacturing

09/20/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
ESD is a constant but invisible force within electronics manufacturing that can have a powerfully detrimental impact on production yield, product and product reliability, and company profitability. And as the circuitry within electronic devices continues to get faster, smaller, and more sophisticated, their sensitivity to the effects of ESD is only likely to increase.

Dr. Bill Cardoso started his first company at age 17 in Brazil, selling it a few years later to work for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, where he led research in nuclear physics to build the equipment that discovered the Higgs Boson (and the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics). After 10 years at Fermilab, he moved from Chicago to sunny San Diego to start Creative Electron in his garage in 2008.
