IPC-2591-Version 1.3: Connected Factory Exchange (CFX)
The IPC-2591v1.3 standard establishes the requirements for the omni-directional exchange of information between manufacturing processes and associated host systems for assembly manufacturing.
This standard applies to communication between all executable processes in the manufacture of printed board assemblies, automated, semi-automated and manual, and is applicable to related mechanical assembly and transactional processes.
IPC-2591, Version 1.3 provides updates to several IPC-CFX messages as well as mandatory and optional IPC-CFX message by equipment type.
