The Hermes Standard Specification & Test Driver & Source Code access

IPC-HERMES-9852: The Hermes Standard Specification

For some in depth analysis of The Hermes Standard, you may download the specification document free of charge. If you are a manufacturer of SMT assembly equipment, you may as well implement The Hermes Standard in your products without any license fee. However please let us know what you did and in which products you implemented it. For more information, please refer to our terms of use.

For the latest version (released April 2018) please download The_Hermes_Standard_Version_1.1

For a compatible version with smaller feture set please download The_Hermes_Standard_Version_1.0.2

Note: Previous versions are available upon request only.

The Hermes Standard Test Driver

If you need to test your The Hermes Standard implementation, you might want to do this using a The Hermes Standard Test Driver as developed by ASM for internal purposes. The SW is available for download here and can be used free of charge.

However, ASM will not accept any liability for any damage caused by dowloading, unpacking, installing, and/or running the software. Nor do they guarantee compatibility with the standard even when your implementation passes the test. Further, ASM cannot accept liability for any damage or other harm caused by products tested against the driver, regardless whether it failed or passed the test.

Please understand that you are using the device fully at your own risk. For more information, please refer to our terms of use.
With downloading any of the files hyperlinked at this site, you agree to those terms.

The Hermes Standard Source Code

The Hermes Standard Initiative is absolutely committed to the open standards philosophy. Therefore, we make everything you might need available online free of charge, even if you are not (yet) a member of the initiative.

So, if you consider starting the implementation of the The Hermes Standard for your equipment, you might want to do this based on the available open source implementation of The Hermes Standard protocol.

Please note: According to our principles, this can be done by members as well as by non-members. However, we want to explicitly highlight the advantages of being a member of the initiative for all vendors of SMT assembly equipment.
Clearly: all vendors are invited to join.

The open source implementation can be found at GitHub (see hyperlingk below the disclaimer).

Please understand that if you decide to do so it will be all at your own risk. For more information, please refer to our terms of use.
With downloading any of the files hyperlinked at this site or at our GitHub resource, you agree to those terms.

Please feel encouraged to provide your implementation of The Hermes Standard to others via GitHub to speed up the distribution of The Hermes Standard in industry.
