So, what’s missing? Ah, that’s right, it’s time to start planning your trade show attendance. To help you make decisions about when and where to go, we’ve put together a list of industry trade shows. It has been two long years with no or few in-person trade shows, and we’ve felt it. 

Hats off to the associations and other industry leaders that have pulled off virtual trade shows during the pandemic. But let’s face it: Zoom trade shows could never replicate the feel and energy of a live show. We humans crave personal interaction, and live trade shows and conferences offer networking opportunities that just don’t exist on our computer screens. 

So, now we’re back in business and ready to hit the road. Do you have a show or conference to add to our list? Let us know!

A First Look at IPC-CFX Box for Legacy Equipment

02/28/2023 | Chris Jorgensen, IPC
Although the prevalence of IPC-CFX in the electronics manufacturing industry has increased since the standard’s launch in spring 2019, the committee responsible for the standard has recognized legacy equipment in the field as a significant barrier to widespread industry adoption. To address this, an A-Team under the IPC-CFX Standard Task Group spent the past year working on a project that provides simple, readily available IPC-CFX hardware with supporting SDK that can act as an IPC-CFX endpoint for existing legacy equipment.
