IPC-CFX for Industry 4.0 communications


A Line Level Enabler

IPC Connected Factory Exchange (IPC-CFX) is an electronics manufacturing industry developed standard forming the foundation/backbone of Industry 4.0 Applications. It simplifies and standardizes machine to machine (M2M) communication as well as machine to business/business to machine (M2B / B2M) solutions.

IPC-CFX ensures that within a production floor, any equipment that supports CFX can be moved in and out like a plug & play device. No matter if it is sending data to downstream machine or getting data from Manufacturing Execution System (MES), it would work seamlessly (out of the box)

So why the need for IPC-CFX?

  • World-wide Industrial IoT communication standard for assembly manufacturing
  • The enabler of Industry 4.0, Smart Factory and Digital Factory solutions

In the background, the foundation of CFX is based on Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), a secure, omni-directional transportation protocol. The messages that is being communicated between machine and MES is based on JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) data encoding.

Key Benefits of IPC-CFX:

  • Everyone has just one interface for complete visibility, reducing costs and complexity
  • Machine vendors can further optimize machine operation based on wider knowledge
