PDX is the Product Data eXchange standard for manufacturing. PDX is a multi-part standard, represented by the IPC 2570 series of specifications.

PDX files are text files in eXtensible Markup Language (XML) format. PDX files can be used to describe:

  • [Bill of Materials] (BOM)
  • Approved Manufacturer Lists (AML)
  • Drawings
  • Engineering Change Requests (ECR)
  • Engineering Change Orders (ECO)
  • Deviations (concessions)

The specification of PDX is defined in three specification documents:

IPC-2571[edit]

IPC-2576[edit]

Sectional Requirements for Electronics Manufacturing Supply Chain Communication of As-Built Product Data

IPC-2578[edit]
