IPC

 

http://www.ipc.org/default.aspx


IPC is pleased and excited to be a part of the IPC-2581 Consortia activity. We support the cooperation of CAD and CAM companies with OEMs and EMS companies with one common goal in mind - One Data Transfer Standard for All! This is a very important leap forward which will benefit the entire industry on a global basis.  The ability to exchange information between design, fabrication, assembly and testing facilities is the ultimate goal of the IPC-2581 Consortia. The neutral format will allow for archiving important historical information for design and managing parameters.  The format will be applicable to many different market segments such as military, aerospace, medical, telecom, industrial, computer and consumer.  The Consortia is very interested in taking a continuous improvement approach to reaching the final version of the standard. IPC staff is dedicated to keeping the format updated as technology changes.

IPC-2581 has its roots in many years of successful data transfer activity, where each effort built on the previous industry needs and explored ways to simplify the complexity of our electronic products. The present IPC-2581 builds on the best of the GenCAM format (IPC-2511) and the ODB++ structure and is thus the best of both worlds.

KwikTic Ltd.

From our initial look at IPC2581, it appears there is now a comprehensive and most importantly well-defined data transfer standard for PCB manufacturing information. Gerber has proved to be a universal format for Bare Board, but there has been nothing robust enough to provide reliable standards for the assembly process onwards. IPC2581 appears to be the format to make everyone’s life easier. KwikTic will be adding Importers to its software and closely following IPC2581 developments.

WISE Software remains committed in our support for IPC-2581 and we continue to look forward to the day when intelligent electronics data transfer is the norm rather than the exception

Zuken

 

Zuken supports efforts by independent standards bodies such IPC to create and maintain neutral standards that all may adopt and benefit by. Open standards have always given the greatest benefit to the widest audience. IPC-2581 is one such standard. Zuken encourages participation of all producers and consumers of PCB design, fabrication, assembly and test data to join in this effort. To support our customers and industry requirements, the output for IPC-2581 is currently available with Zuken’s CR-5000 PCB design products. With support from IPC and the IPC-2581 Consortium, Zuken is committed support this standard as a viable solution for the industry.
