Long-time IPC Volunteer, Doug Pauls Inducted into IPC Hall of Fame

Feb 16, 2017

In recognition of his extraordinary contributions to IPC and the electronics industry, Doug Pauls, principal materials and process engineer, Rockwell Collins, was honored with the IPC Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame Award. Presented at IPC APEX EXPO® on Tuesday, February 14 at the San Diego Convention Center, the IPC Hall of Fame Award represents IPC's highest level of volunteer recognition.

Pauls has served as an active volunteer and leader for IPC and the electronics manufacturing industry for nearly 30 years. Presently, he is chair of the Conformal Coating Requirements Task Group and had served as General Chairman of IPC’s Cleaning and Coating Committees for 10 years and has led IPC efforts in bare board cleanliness, solder mask, surface insulation resistance (SIR), chemical characterization, conformal coating, cleaning processes, and materials and process compatibility testing.

In addition, he has served as a U.S. representative to ISO and IEC working groups on SIR and electro-migration reliability standards. He has also participated in numerous national and international consortia on electronics manufacturing materials and processes. He was an instrumental contributor to IPC-CC-830, Qualification and Performance of Electrical Insulating Compound for Printed Wiring Assemblies as well as the development and revision of the IPC handbook on conformal coating, IPC-HDBK-830, Guidelines for Design, Selection, and Application of Conformal Coatings.

In 1997, Pauls earned an IPC President’s Award for his contributions to IPC standards development, and in 2012 was elected to chair IPC’s top standards development oversight committee, the Technical Activities Executive Committee for a two-year term.

"IPC is privileged to have Doug as such an active member of so many committees and deeply experienced with technical issues that impact our industry," said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. "This Hall of Fame tribute is in recognition of all his years of diligent volunteer work, helping to advance the electronics industry and IPC."
