Isola Group, a market leader in copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), today announced that Firan Technology Group Corporation (FTG) has successfully completed Isola's Certification Program. Isola's technical services team audited FTG to confirm that its manufacturing operations conformed to the standards established in IPC-A-600, "Acceptability of Printed Boards" and to IPC-6012, "Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards". These IPC standards set forth the criteria for PCB workmanship, providing comprehensive acceptance criteria for all types of surface and internal conditions of PCBs. The Certification Program recognizes that FTG is now qualified to build PCBs of up to 20 layers using Isola's I-Speed(R) materials.
As benefits of Isola's Certification, FTG will receive direct factory support, product training and immediate access to Isola's entire product inventory. As Isola introduces new materials to support emerging markets and applications, OEMs may require additional technical support to migrate to these new materials. OEMs can rely on the credibility and expertise of certified PCB fabricators, such as FTG, to assist with the migration to new materials.
Bradley C. Bourne, President and CEO of FTG, stated, "We are pleased to have Isola recognize FTG for our outstanding manufacturing capabilities using I-Speed materials. We look forward to continuing with the certification program in qualifying additional Isola materials."
