80 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I JUNE 2020 An Update on IPC and IPC Design While the world seemingly stands still, IPC's technical standards committees are teeming with activity. I do not track by-the-numbers at- tendance for all my committee meetings, but I have noticed a sharp uptick in the number of individuals who have attended these virtual meetings in the past couple of months. In fact, most of the IPC technical liaisons have observed the same thing and have ex- pressed something to the effect of, "Everyone is so willing to voice their opinions and donate their time." One of my colleagues told us that their committee members have even pleaded for more work. This is a bit of a shock—while we are always proud and appreciative of how our committees contribute their time and tal- ents to produce our standards—this level of engagement is phenomenal. As this involvement has increased, produc- tivity has naturally increased. In the past few months, the timeline for design standards has accelerated. For example, the IPC 1-14 DFX Subcommittee has made great strides in fin- ishing a working draft of the IPC-2231A DFX Guidelines. I am very proud to announce that the IPC 2-16 DPMX Subcommittee has just fin- ished dispositioning a Final Draft for Indus- try Review (FDIR) for the IPC-2581C "Gener- ic Requirements for Printed Board Assembly Products Manufacturing Description Data and Design Circuit by Patrick Crawford, IPC–ASSOCIATION CONNECTING ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES
