IPC A 610 is the most widely used electronics assembly IPC standards in the world. This is a must-have for inspectors, operators, and others with an interest in the acceptance criteria for electronic assemblies.
IPC standards illustrate industry-accepted workmanship criteria for electronics assemblies through detailed statements reflecting acceptable and defect conditions, supported by full-color photographs and illustrations.
Major topics include flex attachment, board-in-board, part-on-part, both lead-free and tin-lead criteria, component orientation and soldering criteria for through-hole, SMT, cleaning, marking, coating, and laminate requirements.
Additionally, wherever possible statements were modified to make readability easier and to enhance understanding — all without eliminating any requirements.
IPC standards, Some significant changes to IPC A 610 G
In compassion to old IPC A 610-F in the latest IPC-610-F Revision few changes.
