Standards in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design

To develop and promote internet standards we have Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)  organization, likewise in Printed circuit boards (PCB) for design, assembly and production, the standards which are followed worldwide are IPC standards.

IPC is an association with more than 90 standard committees which are involved in making printed circuit board and EMS standards. It was founded in 1957 as  Institute for Printed Circuits. This name was later changed to Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits and was again renamed to IPC in 1999.

Given below are design standards as defined by IPC :

IPC-2221 Generic Standard on Printed Board Design
IPC-2222 Sectional Design Standard for Rigid Organic Printed Boards
IPC-2223 Sectional Design Standard for Flexible Printed Boards
IPC-2224 Sectional Standard for Design of PWBs for PC Cards
IPC-2225 Sectional Design Standard for Organic Multichip Modules (MCM-L) and MCM-L Assemblies
IPC-2252 Design and Manufacturing Guide for RF/Microwave Circuit Boards
