This standard specifies the XML schema that represents the intelligent data file format used to describe part list product data. This format may be used for transmitting information between a printed board designer and a manufacturing or assembly facility. The data is most useful when the manufacturing cycle includes computer-aided processes and numerical control machines. The format is a convergence of the Valor Computerized Systems ODB++ and IPC-2511B GenCAM® format structure in XML schema. IPC-2581 is a mandatory part of this standard. 10 pages. Released May 2007.
