IPC's Validation Services Program announces that John Deere Electronic Solutions, a manufacturer of custom, integrated electronics components based in Fargo, N.D., has become the first OEM company to be recertified a second time to the IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML). John Deere Electronic Solutions achieved the QML certification six years ago and this year successfully demonstrated the Class 3 level work required for recertification 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.

Kamal Verma, JDES factory engineering manager stated, “John Deere Electronic Solutions is part of Intelligent Solutions Group of John Deere where we design, develop and manufacture electronic components for John Deere equipment and other OEM customers. Quality is one of the four core values of John Deere and customer is at the focus when we talk about quality. Having been certified by IPC to J-STD-001/IPC-A-610 Class 3 QML program, it gives me great confidence that we are meeting or exceeding the standards we uphold ourselves to and that we will supply our customers with products that they can rely on for their long-term intended end-use.”

“Their dedication to high reliability and meeting the requirements of Class 3 level work was demonstrated during the audit process,” stated Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services.

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 that 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," added Cherry. "We are pleased to recognize John Deere Electronics Solutions for continuing to be a member of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
