Helping the World Build Electronics Better


Reading time ( words)

Hundreds of experts from around the world will discuss electronics manufacturing standards in more than 80 standards meetings May 7–12, at IPC SummerCom 2022 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Facilitated by representatives from OEMs, PCB manufacturers, EMS providers, design firms, and other organizations, IPC standards development committees establish benchmarks for excellence in electronics manufacturing.

“IPC’s internationally recognized standards cover nearly every stage of the electronics product development cycle,” Bergman said. “Through standards committee meetings, everyone in the industry can engage in an exchange of ideas about current industry trends as well as the identification of new standards and updating of current ones. IPC standards help our member companies ensure superior quality, reliability and consistency in electronics manufacturing.”

Standards development committee meetings will cover industry benchmarks in assembly and joining; assembly equipment, base materials; cleaning and coating; electronic documentation technology; electronic product data description; embedded devices; environment, health and safety; fabrication processes; flexible and rigid-flex printed boards; high speed/high-frequency interconnection; management; packaged electronics components; printed board design, printed electronics; process control; product assurance; product reliability; rigid printed boards; terms and definitions; testing; and wearable electronics/e-textiles.

This year, IPC SummerCom will be co-located with the Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) at the Wisconsin Center. IPC SummerCom registration gives participants free access to EWPTE.

IPC Mexico Continues to Grow

07/20/2022 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.

Partnership and Collaboration

Dan Beaulieu and Nolan Johnson recently had a conversation with Christopher Kalmus of Aurora Circuits and Brigitte Lawrence of Brigitflex. Joining them was Jeff Brandman of Aismalibar North America. The group discussed the value of partnerships, noting how it has helped them win and keep business. They also describe a recent project for an OEM manufacturer in the automotive industry that served as a case study for this discussion.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
