With the pandemic showing no signs on ending anytime soon, attendance at PCB West was less than usual, to say the least. Those that attended in person felt really good to reconnect, network and more importantly learn about new products, processes and opportunities to partner, and were typically key decision-makers. Our IPC-2581 Consortium is celebrating…

          IPC-2581 Consortium will be at PCB West 2021 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Stop by booth #412 on Wednesday October 6th to talk to experts about how IPC-2581 is being used by design houses and their manufacturing partners to streamline the Smart hand-off process to manufacturing partners. Ask us about…

I, as an IPC CIT, and Test Engineer at Foxconn would like to see a standard for the transferring of specification information created the various CAD outputs. IPC has improved overall industry quality with standards such as J-STD-001, IPC-A-610 and IPC-7711/21 and I believe IPC-2581 standard can achieve a similar outcome to the aforementioned standards.
