30 The PCB Magazine • February 2016 Mr. Laminate Tells All: Who Would Like a Mil-Spec Audit? I remember when IPC-4101 was completed and released in December 1997 and the question came up about whether IPC should create a policeman program to enforce it. To a person that helped cre- ate IPC-4101, absolutely no one wanted such an audit program ever again. PCB Technologies Receives NADCAP Accreditation PCB Technologies announces that it has received nadcap accreditation for Electronics. A Conversation with IPC President and CEO John Mitchell I-Connect007's Patty Goldman was able to sit down with John Mitchell, president and CEo of IPC, to discuss the organization and where we are going as an industry. We discussed IPC's four aspirational goals—standards, education, advocacy and solu- tions—as well as short-term goals. We also talked a bit about going virtual and becoming paperless. Raytheon's Development and Testing on Track for DDG 51 Flight III Raytheon Company announced its An/SPY-6(V) Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) team has completed the first full radar array, fully populated with component line Replaceable Units (lRUs), including more than 5,000 Transmit/Receive ele- ments, in 140 days. NUS Takes the Quantum Leap into Space Galassia, a two-kilogramme nanosatellite, was developed by students and researchers from the Faculty of Engineering; Centre for Remote Imag- ing, Sensing & Processing (CRISP); and Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT). Highly Efficient, High-Speed Technology for Satellite Communications A group including University of Tokyo research- ers used 64 APSK, a highly efficient signal mod- ulation technology, to successfully demonstrate 505 Mbps communications with the Hodoyoshi-4 nanosatellite, the highest communication speed yet achieved with an earth-observation micro sat- ellite. This high-speed communications technol- ogy will be of great value to future generations of earth observation micro satellites of under 100 kg. Innovative Designs, Smart Manufacturing Deliver Soldier Readiness "The Army has called for increased innovation, which is shining a spotlight on prototype designs," said Christopher Manning, Prototype Integration & Testing Division chief, under the Army's Com- munications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center, or CERDEC. "However, it is imperative that our designs can be leveraged for mass production and sustainment." Northrop Grumman to Design and Produce Shipboard Laser Weapon System Demonstrator The U.S. navy will get a peek at a future where high energy laser weapons could defend its ships against attack under a contract awarded oct. 22 to northrop Grumman Corporation by the office of naval Research (onR). Indium Features Gold-Tin Solder Preforms for Precision Die-Attach Applications at AeroDef2016 Indium will feature its precision gold-tin (AuSn) solder preforms for die-attach at the upcoming AeroDef 2016 event in long Beach, California. Designed for high-reliability applications, Indium's Pb-free and RoHS-compliant AuSn preforms are available in a variety of standard and custom-engi- neered designs. MilAero007 highlights
