A printed circuit board or PCB is essentially a board that connects electronic components. It is the basic component of any electronic design and has developed over the years in a very sophisticated component. In 1925, Charles Dukas, from the USA in the US, he created and patented a way to electroplate an electrical path on an isolated surface. The printed circuit board was invented, opening the door to smaller, simpler and less cumbersome designs. Click here for high density interconnect pcb.
Who makes the standards for a PCB?
An American entity founded in 1957, the IPC (Association Connecting Electronics Industries), since 1995 developed a series of standards for design, (but also for manufacturing, assembly, testing) which help to optimize the entire manufacturing process, reduce the time to market, and get a product with better performance.

The IPC is affiliated with more than 3,500 companies, including multinationals such as Samsung, Motorola, Siemens, and also manufacturers such as Jabil, Sanmina, Flextronics, as well as printed circuit manufacturers , designers , consultants, students, engineers, technicians, assemblers and in general specialists and interested in IPC connectivity (in electronics, including cables, solders, materials, complete products, boxes), as well as market studies , policies and regulations that affect the industry .
Why is design with IPC standards important?
Currently many students and technicians, technologists, engineers, designers, researchers, postgraduate students in areas of mechatronics, electronics, industrial design, software and systems, electricity, continuously design printed circuits, also as entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs , both in companies and institutions educational, R&D centers ( Research and Technological Development ), but without knowing the IPC standards (for products and processes) and the quality design process, nor methods, rules , nor recommendations, good practices (DFM: Design of Manufacturing ) and design techniques.
Additionally, when you want to certify products for export, the rules and processes can help you obtain a product that is compatible where it operates or has EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) . [Nz_gap height = »25 ″ /]
Also, when electronic products are being manufactured or assembled, both in prototypes and in production volumes, the standards help to accelerate time to market, reduce manufacturing errors, costs and improve process time. [Nz_gap height = » 25 ″ /].
In a PCB design you can practice many topics and knowledge that are applied in technical and engineering courses: requirements, planning, customer service, manufacturing, assembly, processes, basic physics and electrical circuits, mechanics, engineering design, documentation.
How can I learn to design with standards?
Participate in a design course. It is guided by expert engineers who have worked in design for electronics producing companies, as well as in manufacturing, assembly and testing. Also certified internationally by the IPC as CID + (Certified Interconect Designer) and IPC 610 trainers who have given workshops and conferences at universities and companies in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Paraguay.
