The article focuses on optoelectronic standards IPC-STD-0040 developed members of Photonics Manufacturers Association Council. IPC-STD-0040 has established four levels of Optoelectronic packaging. Level 0 deals with unpackaged devices that primarily relateto the device manufacturing process, while Levels 1-3 relate to the assembly process(es) necessary to produce a quality Optoelectronic product. The differences between the Optoelectronic packages and their input/output (I/O) relationships are important. IPC has reserved numbers 8400 to 8439. The 84 represents the family of optoelectronics standards proposed, the third digit represents the level for which the standard is intended (level 0, 1, 2 or 3) and the final digit is the major focus of the standard. When more than one number is needed, a dash number will be applied, expanding the original 40 numbers into 400 possible number segments.
