Burnaby, BC, Canada – March 8, 2018 – Enigma Interconnect, Western Canada's largest manufacturer of high quality bare Printed Circuit Boards (PCB's), has installed a new line which offers double sided selective and flash/full body electroplating in hard gold options. This service is offered in-house and is now part of Enigma's quick turn capabilities.

Panel Gold Plating (or Flash Gold) is an electroplated finish, available in both hard and soft gold options. "Enigma is currently offering hard gold which is ideally used for products such as PCMCIA or mini-cards that have both solderable requirements and some plug-in edge fingers," says John Parsons, Enigma's Engineering Manager, "The gold thickness is typically 8 ± 4 micro inches thick." Enigma's Deep Gold Line improves panel utilization for designs incorporating card edge connectors and those with card edge connectors on multiple sides of the PCB.

"Continuing to expand our services with the latest technology is part of our commitment to build a better, more cost-effective board," says Doris Meadley, Sales and Business Development Manager at Enigma. "For over 45 years, our benchmark for success continues to be the new and repeat orders placed by our loyal customer base.  We are grateful to them for continuing to make us their #1 PCB Source."

Enigma Interconnect has held ISO9001 certification since 1992 and was fully certified to the AS9100 Aerospace Standards in 2015 to meet the exceptional needs of organizations such as the Department of Defense, NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration. Attaining AS9100 Revision D is helping enhance Enigma’s ability to meet customer requirements and best manage expectations for avionics customers and those in market sectors who seek exceptional PCB’s with higher quality and technology capabilities.

AS9100 Revision D provides a consistent foundation for business systems of all sizes and complexities along with sector-specific changes in the language regarding product safety, counterfeit parts prevention and configuration management. AS9100 Revision D fully includes the language of ISO9001:2015 which factors in risk-based thinking and how it is applied to operational strategy and management.

“The company’s commitment to maintaining the highest quality standards is critical to achieving manufacturing excellence in North America and driving our growth for over 40 years,” says Doris Meadley, Enigma’s Business Development and Sales Manager.

Enigma Interconnect can demonstrate its certification to AS9100 Revision D and execute risk-based thinking with competency and consistency across the organization as specified by the new quality standard. The framework of AS9100 Revision D offers various opportunities for excellence. “The certification process brings out the best in our organization, processes and people,” says Meadley.

Enigma Interconnect has always been a supplier of bare printed circuit boards to companies serving the aerospace industry. By transitioning to the newest version of the AS9100 standard, the company is further improving its quality management system.
