IPC Automotive

Electronic Industry Standards for the Automotive Market

IPC has been delivering standards for the electronics industry for over 65 years. Through market research we know that electronics systems will account for over 50% of a cars cost by 2030 (Freescale/NXP).

We all know that various electronic systems within a vehicle have become more complicated and critical to the safe operation of a vehicle.

To ensure electronics systems are meeting the high-reliability requirements demanded by the automotive industry, IPC is working with the electronics industry to deliver the quality standards required to meet these stringent automotive requirements.
