BANNOCKBURN, IL — IPC has released new requirements for automotive printed circuit boards to its soldering and assembly qualification standards.

IPC J-STD-001GA/IPC-A-610GA, Automotive Addendum to IPC J-STD-001G, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610G, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, is attached to both standards as it looks at board reliability requirements for the automotive industry, from assembly to inspection.

Committee members representing 17 countries worked for more than 30 months on the addendum to address criteria and acceptability requirements for PCB assemblies for the automotive industry not covered in IPC-A610G and IPC J-STD-001G. The committee was guided by the principle of providing criteria to be used in addition to, and in some cases, in place of, those in the base documents to ensure the reliability of soldered electrical and electronic assemblies that must survive the automotive environment.
