2-40 Electronic Documentation committee meeting

Wednesday April 10th, 2024, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM Room 208A

To discuss proposed major revisions to the IPC-D-325 and IPC-26xx documents to modernize them. The current standards are based on Gerber data and epaper drawings and files. I am asking for support to modernize the IPC electronic documentation to be IPC-2581 based and eliminate sending design requirements on drawings, spreadsheets, etc. Users can use existing excellent commercial software to create drawings if they want them.
