Terminology Guide

Download this 16-page booklet and your students will have a resource that explains the basics of electronics terminology. This resource helps students identify components, understand polarity, value, tolerances, and explains the differences between through-hole and surface-mount components. 

Don't miss out on this simple reference tool for learning the terminology of electronics design and manufacturing. 


The IPC Education Foundation has suspended in-person workshops in response to COVID-19. But we'll be back on the road soon, bringing hands-on electronics experiences to students across the country.

Let's take a look back at some student events.

We look forward to continue working with IPC and professionals in the industry to provide exposure to our students so they have a better understanding of the career path.
