BANNOCKBURN, IL – IPC has released G revisions of IPC-J-STD-001, Requirements of Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies. These two documents are on a three-year renewal cycle.
Committee volunteers from 17 countries and their chairpersons delivered the revisions, including Constantino J. Gonzalez, ACME Training & Consulting, Mary Muller, Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Robert P. Fornefeld, L3 Communications, Daniel L. Foster, Missile Defense Agency, and Kathy L. Johnston, Raytheon Missile Systems.
IPC-A-610G is the visual quality acceptance standard for post-assembly products used in today’s electronics industry. IPC J-STD-001G is the materials and process requirements document for use during manufacturing. Changes include updated criteria for both through-hole and surface mount in IPC-A-610. Other changes include replacement of the Space Shuttle Symbol with the International Space Station Symbol and updates to the general and product assurance sections of IPC J-STD-001.
Kris Roberson, IPC manager of certification and training products and portfolio products, and his beta teams in Europe and the US worked to deliver training and certification materials at the same time as the release of the G revisions. Companies can now train their employees to the latest revision.
In addition, the redline documents for IPC-A-610G and IPC J-STD-001G are available, so users can see what changes were made.
