The IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® recently recognized Larry Johnson, Director and Founder of Light Brigade, Inc. with a Distinguished Committee Service Award for his contributions to the development of the standard  IPC-D-640, Design and Critical Process Requirements for Optical Fiber, Optical Cable and Hybrid Wiring Harness Assemblies.
