Latest IPC-DPMX standard offers unique bidirectional data exchange between design houses and their manufacturing partners.
The authors of IPC-DPMX, previously known as IPC-2581, have come up with an innovative solution for addressing the needs of the industry for the latest version of the electronics data transfer standard. Developed for the industry by the industry, IPC-DPMX has many new enhancements. The just-released Revision C has been reviewed and unanimously approved by the PCB design, analysis and supply chain industry.
IPC-2581B introduced the concept of bidirectional data exchange between design houses and their manufacturing partners. It sought to eliminate the back-and-forth between partners at the very end of the design cycle for communicating and ensuring that critical net impedances were achievable. This communication was important earlier in the design cycle and impacted the layer stack-up, which is very hard to change at the end once design is complete and handed off. Although this innovation was unveiled almost seven years ago, it is still unmatched and unique within an open standard.
