Four non-profit PCBA org sites
With the development of the PCBA industry, an increasing number of companies have entered the field. Although a plethora of PCBA knowledge is available on the internet, which is beneficial to the industry’s development, it can be disastrous for those who are just entering the field. They may find it difficult to distinguish between authentic and inaccurate information on the internet. Therefore, FS Technology has compiled information from four of the most authoritative non-profit organizations in the PBC industry. These organizations generally provide professional and authoritative information for beginners to refer to.
American Printed Circuit Board Association – IPC
IPC is the printed circuit board association of America, a private academic group established in 1957. It was originally called the “Printed Circuit Board Manufacturers Association” and was renamed in December 1977 as the “Institute of Electronic Circuit Interconnection and Packaging.” As the team expanded, IPC’s scope expanded from pure “PCB manufacturing” to research on engineering technologies and specifications, such as plates, parts, and assembly. IPC is the world’s most accomplished and authoritative PCBA organization in the field of printed circuits. It has led many PCB assembly professional studies and formulated many important specifications, which are documents that the upstream and downstream industries rely on. IPC’s philosophy is to help OEMs, EMS, PCB manufacturers, wire harness manufacturers, and electronics industry suppliers better build a global electronics association.
Electronic Components Industry Association - ECIA
ECIA – Electronic Components Industry Association, is a private assembly composed of a group of the world’s top electronic component manufacturers. Among the electronic components, PCB assembly, and manufacturing associations, ECIA is arguably one of the most authoritative bodies, bringing together the experience and expertise of many industry leaders and professionals representing all aspects of the electronic components supply chain.
In this fast-moving market, where electronics manufacturing is becoming increasingly challenging, expansion and uncertainty seem to be the only truly constant factors in the electronics industry today. Reliable intelligence is essential for practitioners in the electronic manufacturing industry, especially for PCBA manufacturers who have a significant demand for electronic components. Thankfully, the PCB organization ECIA has provided insight into PCB Components Procurement. If you want to know more about the components market report, you can visit the ECIA exclusive market report.
As the world’s leading electronic component manufacturer organization, ECIA has been promoting and improving the business environment for authorizing the sale of electronic components to end customers. For this reason, ECIA members have developed electronic manufacturing industry guidelines and technical standards. It is worth mentioning that FS Tech always uses the technical standards provided by ECIA, an authoritative PCB assembly and manufacturing association, as a reference to improve the quality of PCB assembly services.
International Electronics Manufacturing Program R&D Alliance-iNEMI
The International Electronics Manufacturing Program R&D Alliance, also known as iNEMI, is a PCB-focused government research and development alliance that comprises leading electronics manufacturers, suppliers, government agencies, and universities in the PCBA industry. iNEMI has many professional materials that can help readers clearly distinguish between PCB and PCBA. Compared to other personal websites, iNEMI’s content employs more specialized vocabulary and demonstrates high authority and professionalism.
iNEMI’s main objective is to bridge the knowledge gap in the electronics manufacturing industry by eliminating the disparity between productivity and production technology and addressing the industry’s pain points with the utmost urgency. NEMI develops a roadmap for the future technology needs of the global electronics manufacturing industry, and its expertise is derived from the support of top OEMs, ODMs, and electronic manufacturing services suppliers. As a non-profit civil organization, iNEMI has secured government laboratories funding and technical support from university research institutions and industry associations.
FS Technologies owes its growth to iNEMI’s ambitious plans to expedite the deployment of new technologies, develop industry infrastructure, stimulate standards development, and disseminate effective business practices.
Oregon Electronics Manufacturers Association-EMA
The Oregon Electronics Manufacturers Association (EMA), formerly known as the Pacific Northwest Printed Circuit Association, was established in Oregon in 1974. The Northwest Printed Circuit Association, now renamed EMA, focuses on serving the electronics industry in Oregon and has aided countless electronics manufacturing companies. Ruth Connor, an EMA mentor, has the most advanced circuit design theory and can explain in detail how a PCB is made step by step. Additionally, FS Technology’s internal PCB assembly requirements are formulated according to Brian Trumbull’s “What Is Needed for Successful PCB Assembly.”
The learning of PCBA is a long process. Obtaining knowledge from professional websites is the most correct choice. The PCB government website, PCB org website, and FS Tech’s PCBA Blog are all good choices. If none of the above four PCBA org websites can satisfy your thirst for knowledge, FS Tech will continue to work hard to find more valuable PCB org websites. We sincerely hope that you can swim and grow in the sea of PCB knowledge.
