IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® G published revisions and changes to the two most common standards used in the electronics industry, IPC-J-STD-001, Requirements for Electronic Assemblies, Soldered Electrical, IPC-A-610, Acceptability Electronic Assemblies. These two documents are located in a three-year renewal cycle, in line with the ever-changing technology in the electronics industry.A first IPC was achieved with the release of G revisions for IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001.
The IPC training and certification team has provided updated training and certification materials with the exceptional support of Master IPC Trainer (MIT) and certified IPC trainer (CIT) Beta teams. Kris Roberson, IPC Manager for Certification and Training Products and Portfolio Products and their beta teams in Europe and the US, worked on providing training and certification materials as well as publishing G versions. Many companies can train their employees for the latest G Revision of the standards.
Volunteers from the dedicated committee of 17 countries and their chair-persons for IPC-A-610G: Constantino J. Gonzalez, ACME Training & Consulting; Mary Muller, Crane Aviation and Electronics; Robert P. Fornefeld, L3 Communications; and for IPC-J-STD-001G: Daniel L. Foster, missile defense agency; Kathy L. Johnston, Raytheon Missile Systems; should be congratulated to deliver the G revisions on time. Their hard work can be seen in the G revisions standard.
The IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001, which are often used as additional documents, each have a unique purpose. IPC-A-610G remains the visual quality standard for post-assembly products used in today’s electronics industry. IPC J-STD-001G continues to be the document of critical material and process requirements for use in manufacturing. Each standard contains important changes and updates that track changes in the industry. Some of these changes include updated surface mount and through-hole criteria in IPC-A-610. Other changes include the replacement of the “Space Shuttle Symbol” with the “International Space Station Symbol” and updates to the General and Product Safety sections of the IPC J-STD-001.
In addition, redline documents are available for IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001. By providing the redline documents at the start of the new revision, users of the standards can see what changes were made immediately.
Translations of the G revisions will be published in the coming months. For more information about IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001, documentation, and training redline materials and certification, visit this website.
