Sypris Receives Releases Under New Multi-Year Contract


Reading time ( words)

Sypris Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc., announced that it has recently received releases under a new, multi-year production contract that was first announced in February of this year. The order, which provides for Sypris to begin full-rate production beginning in 2022, calls for the manufacture and test of power supplies for an initial five systems to be supplied to a U.S. DOD contractor. Terms of the award were not disclosed.

The modules produced by Sypris will be integrated into an electronic warfare improvement program for the U.S. Navy. According to news sources, the upgrade will provide the capability to actively jam incoming missiles that threaten a warship, cue decoys and adapt quickly to evolving threats. The improvements to the electronic attack portion will provide integrated countermeasures against radio frequency-guided threats and extended frequency range coverage according to the U.S. Navy.

The system’s capability for non-kinetic electronic attack options can be further deployed in additional critical areas. From advanced communications to multi-role waveforms, the multi-function applications of the system will provide enhanced mission capabilities to the U.S. Navy Fleet while presenting opportunities for future reductions in cost, size, weight, and power according to the U.S. Naval Institute.

“We are pleased to receive this first production award under our new multi-year contract with this important customer,” said Mark R. Kane, Vice President & General Manager of Sypris Electronics. “We have provided manufacturing and engineering services for this critical program for years, originating with the Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase, before transitioning into Low-Rate Initial Production and now into Full-Rate Production. We are certainly proud to increase our support for this strategic, long-term program of the U.S. Navy.”

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

11/20/2019 | Phil Kinner, Electrolube
While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.
