IPC (www.IPC.org) is a global trade association based in Bannockburn, Ill., dedicated to the competitive excellence and financial success of its 2,700 member companies which represent all facets of the electronic interconnect industry, including design, printed circuit board manufacturing and electronics assembly. As a member-driven organization and leading source for industry standards, training, market research and public policy advocacy, IPC supports programs to meet the needs of an estimated $1.7 trillion global electronics industry. IPC maintains additional offices in Taos, N.M.; Arlington, Va.; Garden Grove, Calif.; Stockholm, Sweden; Moscow, Russia; and Shanghai and Shenzhen, China. About ESDA
Founded in 1982, the ESD association (www.esda.org) is a professional voluntary association dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of electrostatic discharge avoidance. The association has grown to more than 2,000 members throughout the world. From an initial emphasis on the effects of ESD on electronic components, the association has broadened its horizons to include areas such as textiles, plastics, Web processing, cleanrooms, and graphic arts. To meet the needs of a continually changing environment, ESDA is chartered to expand ESD awareness through standards development, educational programs, local chapters, publications, tutorials, certification and symposia.
