IPC-DPMX (IPC-2581) Consortium
IPC Digital Product Model Exchange
An open, global, BIDIRECTIONAL standard for efficient PCB design data EXCHANGE
IPC-DPMX (Digital Product Model Exchange), also known as IPC-2581 is a generic standard for printed circuit board and assembly manufacturing description data and transfer methodology. Developed in 2004 by IPC, IPC-DPMX is used for exchanging information between a printed circuit board designer and a manufacturing or assembly facility. For nearly every step in the industrial process flow, IPC-DPMX offers a standard to help companies ensure superior manufacturability, quality, reliability and consistency in electronics assemblies built for their products.
