IPC and High Density Package Users Group Strengthen Collaboration with MoU


Reading time ( words)

IPC and High Density Package Users Group (HDP), a trade organization representing companies involved in the supply chain of manufacturing products that utilize high-density electronic packages and printed circuit boards, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), enabling a strengthened partnership, increased technical collaboration between groups, and providing a mutual path toward emerging and disruptive high density interconnect (HDI) technologies.

“Both IPC and HDP are member-driven organizations,” said Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist. “Working together, both organizations will focus on next generation HDI technology projects to benefit the electronics manufacturing industry. HDP is very well established with more than 25 years of experience in R&D technology development. Resultant, new HDI learning and solutions will help drive IPC standards development activities as well as training and education programs.”

IPC and HDP have successfully worked together for many years on such electronics industry issues as electrochemical migration, high density ball grid arrays, board thickness on solder joint reliability and members of HDP have presented papers at IPC APEX EXPO on high frequency loss test methods for laminate materials and smooth copper signal integrity.

“A closer working relationship between IPC and HDP will bring significant advantages to both organizations, and as a result, to the industry,” noted Marshall Andrews, executive director of HDP. “Electronics manufacturing technology is moving faster than ever with the introduction of 5G and automotive applications. Close cooperation at all levels of the supply chain will be necessary to address issues and implement the new materials and processes required to keep moving forward. IPC and HDP will help make those changes smooth and reliable.”
