BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, March 31, 2009 - In recognition of extraordinary contributions to IPC and the electronic interconnect industry, countless hours of volunteer service on IPC standards development committees, and exceptional lifetime achievement, IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries® bestowed the 2009 Raymond E. Pritchard IPC Hall of Fame Award to Bill Jacobi, former president and CEO, William Jacobi and Associates, and Dan Feinberg, owner, Fein-Line Associates. Presented at IPC APEX EXPO(TM) in Las Vegas, the Hall of Fame Award represents IPC's highest level of member recognition.

Dan Feinberg has been active in IPC since 1968. A founding member of the IPC Suppliers Council, he served as chairman of the IPC Suppliers Management Council Steering Committee from 1991 to 1993, and was one of the prime architects of IPC Printed Circuits Expo®.

Feinberg is also a founding member and current chairman of the IPC Government Relations Committee and he chaired the IPC Government Relations Trade and Global Competitiveness Subcommittee from 1994 to 2001. A past board member for the IPC California Circuits Association (CCA), Feinberg was instrumental in establishing both IPC's Capitol Hill Day in Washington, D.C. and CCA's Sacramento Day.

A devoted champion of IPC, particularly, IPC government relations activities, Feinberg was the recipient of the IPC Chairman's Award in 1994 and the IPC Public Policy Award in 2000. "IPC is the vanguard of the electronic interconnect industry, an industry that has been very good to me," said Feinberg. "Most of my lifelong friends come from this industry, so my involvement is akin to doing what one can to help a friend. Early in my career IPC and its members helped me succeed. At this point in my life, it's time to give back ... IPC allows me to give back."

Dubbed "Mr. Flex" by his industry peers, Bill Jacobi has been instrumental in expanding the integration of all facets of flexible interconnect technologies throughout his 40-plus year career. "In my early days as a supplier to flex circuit makers, I wanted to learn more about the technology and as a result, I became enthralled," said Jacobi. For the next 15 years, he became both shepherd and spokesman for the industry. And, in 1990, Jacobi was honored with the IPC Presidents Award for outstanding leadership and commitment to IPC.

In addition to promoting the use of flexible printed circuits worldwide, Jacobi served as committee chairman of the IPC Flexible Circuits Committee for 17 years and initiated the first annual national conference on flexible circuits in May 1995. The annual event today is known as the IPC International Conference on Flexible Circuits.

Jacobi's other achievements include forming a joint IPC/Japan Printed Circuit Association standards committee that developed IPC/JPCA-6202, Performance Guide Manual for Single- and Double-Sided Flexible Printed Wiring Boards, for which, in 2000, he received awards as an outstanding IPC Committee Chairman and for Distinguished Technical Committee Service.

Commenting on his achievements, Jacobi said, "I think helping to establish the first flexible circuits conference was my greatest accomplishment. It set the stage for widespread acceptance of flexible circuit technology, and of this, I am most proud."
