IPC CFX Committee
With the release of IPC-2591, Connected Factory Exchange (CFX), the electronics industry now has an industry standard that allows them to implement Industry 4.0 and IoT quickly and easily into their manufacturing processes. This is the first standard to provide a true "plug-and-play" IoT communication environment throughout the manufacturing process, where all devices, manufacturing processes and transaction stations can communicate with each other without the need for special software.
The FED is an association with members in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Among its 700 members are designers and manufacturers of printed circuit boards, EMS and EDA companies, process and technology service providers as well as manufacturers of production equipment and software. The association supports its members in technical business processes and offers assistance in decision-making.
