Specifications and standards in Electronics

CERN is since a few years an active member in several standardization organisations who develop important specifications and standards in the field of electronics: IPC, PCI-SIG, PICMG, PXI System Alliance and VITA

Other resources are listed below.

IPC

  • IPC provides standards and quality programs supporting the electronics industry such as standards for electronics assembly and PCB fabrication. The main specification for CERN is IPC-A-610: Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies.
  • Standards are available on CDS.
