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.

Big Data Can Bring Your Business Back

04/20/2022 | Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
