IPC Survey Assesses Leaded Vs. Lead-free Military Electronics Production Costs and Supply Chain Risks

Mar 17, 2015

 IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® launched a “fast facts” survey today to assess the current state of the supply chain for military electronics suppliers and the issues surrounding the trend toward lead-free electronics. All manufacturers of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic assemblies for military or aerospace applications are invited to participate. The deadline for responses is Friday, March 27.

The confidential survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/IPCLeadFree. Responses will be kept confidential and only aggregate data will be published in the report. Participants who complete the survey will receive a complimentary report on the findings by the end of April.
IPC’s goal in conducting the study is to help electronics manufacturers and their military/aerospace customers quantify the costs and assess the supply chain risks of producing leaded electronics in an increasingly lead-free marketplace. More information about the survey can be obtained by contacting IPC at marketresearch@ipc.org.
