BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, November 19, 2008 - IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has awarded certification to electronics assembly manufacturer EI Microcircuits, Inc., in Mankato, Minn., under IPC's Certification for RoHS Lead-Free Electronics Assembly Process Capability Program.

Implementation of RoHS lead-free requirements impacts the entire electronics assembly process from materials management to process engineering to test and inspection. The certification process helps companies implement best practices and process efficiencies and utilize the valuable benefit of objective feedback from a qualified outside auditor. The IPC program provides EMS and OEM facilities with tools to benchmark existing lead-free processes and assess their abilities to meet the requirements of the RoHS Directive.

Commenting on the recognition, EI Microcircuits vice president of operations, Todd King said, "The IPC lead-free certification has helped instill confidence in our customers that we have met the standards of IPC and are capable of processing all their lead-free products."

According to Susan Filz, IPC director of industry programs, certification is an excellent way for a facility to validate its lead-free electronics assembly processes capabilities. "A facility can usually perform a simple test to see if they are producing lead-free product, but IPC's program takes the analysis an important step further. The audit questions are specifically designed to get a company to think critically about its lead-free processes and make sure they are operating at an optimum level."
