SCI Technology Secures IPC J-STD-001 FS Aerospace Electronics Certification


Reading time ( words)

SCI Technology, Inc. (SCI), a division of Sanmina Corporation today announced that it has attained J-STD-001FS aerospace electronics certification from the Institute of Printed Circuits (IPC). This certification recognizes an organizations ability to meet the rigorous standards required of space flight, and expands SCI's quality and functional capabilities to support new and existing customers in the aerospace industry.

SCI has been a leader in aerospace since the 1960's and this certification strengthens the company's ties to the industry. SCI developed and produced electronics for the Saturn V rocket used in the Apollo missions, and Skylab in the 1970s. In August 2017, SCI will mark 40 years since the launch of Voyager 2, which is currently flying beyond the solar system with SCI electronics still transmitting valuable data back to earth. SCI continues to design and deliver mission critical electronics for many well known commercial, military and space programs.

The special requirements of J-STD-001FS pertain to the production of high reliability electrical assemblies that can survive both the harsh conditions of the journey to space and the demands of operating in microgravity. "SCI will be able to participate in new programs including space flight and exploration, missile defense, surveillance and advanced communications systems," said SCI President Mike Underwood. "The J-STD-001FS certification represents an important investment in SCI's operations." For more information about this topic or any of SCI's other ventures, contact Marketing and Communications Senior Manager Angela Hardin by email at angela.hardin@sci.com, or by telephone at 1-256-882-4588.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

12/30/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
