Better by Design

A new electronic product cannot be successful without a proper design creation process. This process requires close collaboration across the supply chain. The IPC Design Initiative aims to build a global forum where OEMs, PCB manufacturers, EMS, advanced packaging experts and EDA software providers can collaborate, share and advance next generation design approaches together.

Building Electronics Better starts with better designs. Explore how IPC can help you accomplish better designs.
