BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA — IPC and Celestica announce that the IPC Pb-free Electronics Risk Management (PERM) Council is meeting in Toronto, Canada, July 22–24, to discuss lead-free conversion issues related to the safety, performance, reliability and affordability of electronics in the aerospace, defense, medical and other high-performance markets. The meeting is hosted by Celestica, a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, and long-time IPC member-company.

Comprising international members representing industry, government and academia, the IPC PERM Council develops and coordinates risk management approaches for the transition to lead-free electronics. Specific meeting topics include the prediction of fatigue life of lead-free solder joints in long-term service; tin whisker testing and modeling; test vehicles for lead-free process qualification; lead-free technology research gaps; nano solders research and development; and standards activities for lead-free compliance. In addition, IPC President & CEO John Mitchell will address the group to convey the importance of government relations (GR) and advocacy to secure support for lead-free reliability research. “IPC’s GR team can help support the PERM Council by developing a government affairs strategy that would include identifying potential programs for assistance in lead-free electronics research.

“IPC is grateful to Celestica for not only being our host, but also for its long-term participation in and support of the PERM Council since its inception in 2004,” said Mitchell. “IPC PERM Council members like Celestica provide critical leadership in furthering research coordination, training, global advocacy and more.”
