IPC Announces Development of Press-fit Pin Standard for Automotive Requirements


Reading time ( words)

IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries has announced plans to start the development of a new standard intended to cover the qualifications and acceptance requirements for press-fit pin technology that includes the reliability needs for automotive and other industries, such as aerospace.
This new standard is highly anticipated, as there is currently not a specific standard to support press-fit pin automotive requirements and other high-reliability applications. The yet to be named standard is expected to be released late 2017. The IPC standards development process will bring together collaboration between design and assembly task groups as well as all considerations and criteria for applicable documents of both design and assembly.

“This newly proposed standard is exciting for multiple reasons. First, it is a document specifically requested by the European automotive electronics industry and is further evidence that European stakeholders are embracing IPC’s efforts to engage them in IPC’s global standardization process,” said Dave Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and training. “Additionally, it will help to close a technology hole in IPC’s standardization tree by adding a fresh look at the use of press-fit pin technology in electronic hardware.”
This document will be IPC’s second significant standard developed to support the rapidly growing automotive electronics industry. The development of standards continues to be one of the IPC’s core value propositions and the automotive electronics industry is one of the key verticals in Europe.

“IPC views this press-fit pin standard activity as an important step in our mission to deliver value to our growing membership in Europe and to help make them more financially successful,” added Sanjay Huprikar, IPC vice president of member success. “As we continue to utilize our European members as strong voices and champions in the development of our educational offerings and events, we are encouraging these members to get more involved in developing standards for the industry.”

Big Data Can Bring Your Business Back

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?
