Reading time ( words)

KIC announced that Miles Moreau, General Manager, EMEA, South America and Australia, received a Special Recognition Award during the IPC APEX EXPO. The award was presented to Moreau during the IPC-Hermes committee meeting on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020.

Moreau accepted the award in recognition of his outstanding contributions towards the development of the IPC-HERMES-9852 standard. HERMES is a machine-to-machine communication standard used in the SMT assembly industry.

IPC-HERMES-9852 is a successor to the SMEMA standard, introducing improvements such as: simpler physical wiring (Ethernet), use of popular data transmission formats (TCP/IP and XML), reduced number of barcode scanners (required only once at the beginning of the line), transmission of board data (such as barcodes and dimensions) to downstream machines.

Moreau is now managing sales and support operations across 4 continents for KIC: Europe, Africa, South America, and Australia. He has been with KIC for more than 25 years with roles as service manager, overseas assignment opening KIC’s first European office, R&D project manager, and global product manager.

Given his decades of electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industry experience and expertise in thermal process, Moreau has played a critical role in defining KIC’s product roadmap and what products and solutions are brought to market. Moreau holds numerous US and international patents through his work at KIC.

IPC-HERMES-9852, version 1.2 provides a digital replacement for the SMEMA interface and extends the interface to communicate such things as unique identifiers for handled printed boards, equipment identifiers, barcodes, conveyor speed and specific information about the product type.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
