IPC Day Mexico Highlights Aeronautics IndustryDecember 5, 2023 | Robert Erickson and Lorena Villanueva, IPC
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
About 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Mexico City lies Queretaro, an area rich in history, with stone streets and public squares, and which twice has been the country’s capital. But it’s also quickly becoming a global capital of electronics manufacturing, especially aeronautics, and was the location for the first IPC Day Mexico this past June.
IPC Day is a one-day event where IPC works with local partners to bring together members of the electronics industry from key centers in the countries where IPC operates, to discuss topics of interest around electronics manufacturing and assembly. Events of this nature are a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about IPC's global initiatives for the benefit of the electronics industry, as well as the achievements and progress that IPC members are making to promote the region.
The first IPC Day Mexico was co-hosted by IPC and the Queretaro Aerocluster, and was attended by representatives from more than 15 different companies and organizations in the local aeronautics industry.
During the event at Queretaro Aerocluster’s facility, adjacent to the Queretaro International Airport, attendees learned about IPC globally and in the Mexico region, more about IPC's workforce training programs, and were able to network and share their experiences in the industry. The three keynote speakers discussed workforce training for electronics assembly and wire harness production, the Queretaro Aerocluster program to train students at the Aeronautical University of Queretaro (UNAQ), and trends in electronics manufacturing’s "near-shoring," from Asia to Mexico.

You have an excellent idea for a new standard in the electronics manufacturing industry. How do you turn that idea into a reality? It’s simple: You submit a PIN to the TAEC. Now, what does that even mean? To develop a new standard, you need the help of the IPC Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) Global. Ideas for new IPC standards are submitted via Project Identification Notification (PIN) to TAEC Global, which conducts an initial review. The PIN is then sent to the general TAEC standards development oversight committee for review and approval. Now, how do they review it and who comprises the committee?
When high school students face an upcoming test, they may experience a mix of dread and excitement, depending on the source material and how well they’ve prepared. Similarly, professionals sitting for a certification exam to test their knowledge of IPC standards may feel a whirlwind of emotions. However, these aren't just any exams; they’re meant for operators, engineers, and managers building the critical infrastructure of our world’s most essential electronics systems.
