68 The PCB Magazine • November 2016 All About Flex: Flex Circuit Specifications for Commercial and Military Applications Applications across the various markets for print- ed circuit boards can have significantly different specifications and performance requirements. IPC-6013 is an industry-driven specification that defines the performance requirements and accep- tance features for flexible printed circuit boards. EIPC Reliability Workshop, Tamworth, UK, September 22, 2016 EIPC's reliability workshop, presented in coopera- tion with Amphenol Invotec, attracted a capacity audience from eight countries—some delegates having travelled from as far away as Russia—to take the opportunity to learn first-hand how to meet OEM, ODM and EMS product quality and safety requirements, and to understand how in- terconnection stress testing techniques could be applied to determine the reliability of multilayer PCBs. The Right Approach: FOD and the Aerospace Industry Unless you are currently building aerospace prod- uct to AS9100, you are probably saying, "What the heck is FOD?" What started out as a require- ment to prevent damage to aircraft parts such as engines has been flowed down to any component or assembly including PCBs. John Cardone on Designing Flex for Spacecraft If you watched footage of the Mars rover driving all over the red planet, you're familiar with some of John Cardone's handiwork. He's been design- ing rigid, flex, and rigid-flex circuitry for space- craft since he joined JPL in the early '80s, and he's worked on some of the more ground-breaking flex circuits along the way. American Standard Circuits Achieves AS9100 Rev C Certification American Standard Circuit has achieved its AS9100 Rev C certification, the internationally recognized quality management system standard specific to the aerospace, aviation and defense industries. This standard is strongly supported and adhered to by major aerospace OEMs and is being required by vendors within the supply chain on an increas- ing basis. Eltek Has Supplied $1.6 Million Orders to a Strategic Customer Eltek Ltd. announced today that since January 2016 it has supplied approximately US$ 1.6 mil- lion of technologically advanced solutions to a strategic customer. The customer selected Eltek because of its capability to produce high-perfor- mance and reliable solutions. Flex Talk: Troubleshooting Flex Circuit Applications for Mil/Aero Projects I imagine that everyone has been in this position at one time or another: Despite everyone's best at- tempt at creating the perfect design, PCB fabrica- tion and assembly, something goes wrong and the troubleshooting begins. American Standard Circuits Achieves AS9100 Rev C Certification American Standard Circuits has achieved its AS9100 Rev C Certification. AS9100 is the inter- nationally recognized quality management system standard specific to the aerospace, aviation and defense industries. Colonial Circuits: A Veteran-Owned Small Business Mark Osborn, president and founder of Colonial Circuits, a truly American board shop specializing in the fabrication of high-technology PCBs, is also a proud Vietnam veteran who is still serving our country by building PCBs for most of America's critical defense and aerospace programs. Cirexx Develops High-Heat Flex Circuit with HT Material Cirexx International now offers a line of flexible cir- cuit products that employ the recently developed DuPont Pyralux high-temperature HT material.
