Webinar: Managing ECAD Manufacturing Output with IPC-2581

Date: Thursday, November 20

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

For years, the generation of manufacturing data from the ECAD tools has involved creating multiple files, organizing them into specific directories and then sending those files to the manufacturing and assembly shops to be built. The files also came with specific ‘Read Me’ instructions on the steps to take in order to ensure a quality final product.

Enter IPC-2581, a vendor-neutral, ’intelligent’ output format that contains everything needed to manufacture and assemble designs and can replace many of the various other formats in use today.

This webinar about IPC-2581 will cover:

  • Collaboration between mechanical and electrical engineers
  • An overview of data flow
  • Incremental change collaboration
  • Change validation and tracking
  • ECAD-MCAD difference compare
  • ECAD Visualization and Collaboration
  • The benefits of IPC-2581 vs. the traditional Gerber and ODB++ files

We’ll also discuss the real-world experience of using IPC-2581 with Gary Carter at Fujitsu.
