More about the Obsolete and Discontinued Product Task Group
The IPC standard is being developed to support existing JEDEC Solid State Technology Association standards for Product Change Notification (J-STD-046) and Discontinuance (J-STD-048) by introducing a standard data exchange format to facilitate communication between supplier to distributor to contract manufacturer (CM) to original equipment manufacturers (OEM). The adoptions of a standardized data exchange it building upon the adoption of the current 175X series of IPC standards where adoption is increasing.
The task group is in the process of standardizing the data attributes for both product change notification and discontinuance and incorporating those into an XML scheme. Once complete, several example declarations from various companies will be used to test the validity of the XML schema.
