Reading time ( words)

To commemorate IPC India’s decade of service to the electronics manufacturing industry, the IPC India team will hold skills challenge competitions and member networking events starting this November across different parts of the country. Winners of regional competitions will gather in Bengaluru and New Delhi in August 2022 to compete in PCB design, hand soldering and wire harness assembly championships. 

The skills challenge semi-final competition will take place on August 2 (Bengaluru) with championship taking place on August 4 (New Delhi) at Integrated Electronics Manufacturing Interconnections (IEMI) 2022. In addition to the skills championships, panel discussions and technical conference program sessions will focus on information communication technology on August 2 and on August 4, topics and discussions will focus on the defense and aerospace technology.

IPC Skills Challenge Phases:

November 2021 – March 2022 

  • Competitors from electronics companies send registration form to IPC India
  • As per IPC competition guidelines, companies organize hand soldering/wire harness assembly/PCB design challenges at their company premises using own tools/equipment
  • Companies can nominate observers/judges from own company if IPC certified individuals available, otherwise IPC will provide IPC certified observers/judges
  • IPC present certificates to winner and runner up at each company location

April 2022 – July 2022: IPC India will organize semi-final competition round with the winners of the first rounds at networking events at Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Bengaluru, Colombo (TBC) and New Delhi (August 2, 2022)

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data, Chapter 2

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Overcoming Component Selection and Sourcing Challenges

Most PCB designers know precisely how Captain James T. Kirk felt because we often feel the same way when starting a new design. We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
