Standards Development Committees Advance Leading Industry Standards at IPC APEX EXPO

Jan 22, 2015

Hundreds of experts from around the world will discuss electronics manufacturing standards in more than 90 standards development meetings February 22–26, in conjunction with IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. 

Facilitated by representatives from OEMs, PCB manufacturers, EMS providers, design firms, and other organizations, IPC standards development committees establish benchmarks for excellence in the areas of: assembly and joining; assembly equipment; base materials; cleaning and coating; electronic product data description; embedded devices; environment, health and safety (EHS); fabrication processes; flexible and rigid-flex printed boards; high-speed/high-frequency interconnections; management; packaged electronic components; printed board design technology; printed electronics; process control; product assurance; product reliability; rigid printed boards; terms and definitions; and testing.

For example, the High Speed/High Frequency Design Subcommittee will meet to develop IPC-2228, a new design standard for high speed/high frequency printed boards. The Printed Electronics Final Assembly Subcommittee will focus on expanding and completing the working draft of IPC-6901, Performance Requirements for Printed Electronics Assemblies. In addition, the Terms and Definitions Committee will work on Revision N of the IPC-T-50 terms and definitions standard.

According to David Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and technology, industry standards enable companies to negotiate commerce and they contribute directly to the success of the industry as a whole.

Implementing IPC standards ensures reliability and quality in an organization,” Bergman said. “Through standards meetings, everyone in the industry can engage in an exchange of ideas about current industry trends as well as the identification of new standards and updating of current ones. These standards help our member companies improve quality, communication and cost-savings.”
