IPC-2221B Gerber Coupon Generator Subscription Service
IPC is focused on supporting the electronics industry and IPC member companies with the most current standards and products available today. In an effort to keep our member companies current with best practices in the electronics industry, IPC is offering a new subscription service for generating Gerber files for the fabrication of updated test coupons necessary to meet current board design technologies.
The new IPC-2221B, Generic Standard on Printed Board Designs Appendix A test coupon designs, as called out in the IPC-6012C-TC Test Coupon Addendum to IPC-6012C, Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards, provide for structural integrity verification when used for the acceptance of production lots of printed boards. The most commonly used test coupons (AB, AB-R, and D) for product acceptance will be available initially, with other test coupons available in the near future.
Among the features of the IPC-2221B Gerber Coupon Generator subscription service is a simple, easy-to-use “Design Parameters/Input File,” that utilizes an auto quality check feature. This ensures design rules for the test designs established in IPC-2221B are automatically maintained before the Gerber Files are generated. What used to take hours to generate Gerber files from the CAD/CAM user will now only take minutes, thus freeing up the CAD/CAM user to work on other designs.
The IPC-2221B Gerber Coupon Generator is available to IPC Members only, as an annual subscription service solution, meeting current printed board design parameters to generate Gerber Files of IPC-2221B test coupon designs at any time. This allows users to generate coupons when they want, and as often as they need them.
In the end, this cost-effective service provides an easy and simple way to obtain Gerber File Test Coupons. It updates best practices for modern fabrication and automates testing for increased quality assurance.
