The two most widely used standards in the industry, J-STD 001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, and IPC-A- 610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, have been released to revision G to keep pace with the everchanging electronics industry.
The IPC-A- 610 remains the visual acceptance tool for post assembly products. J-STD 001 covers the materials and process requirements for manufacture. Even though they are often used as comparison documents, they do each have a unique purpose.
Training and certification materials were also released November 2017 allowing companies to swiftly transition to revision G for all CIT and CIS training requirements.
Advanced Rework Technology Ltd is longest running IPC Authorised Training Centre in the UK and one of a few in Europe who can offer ALL of the IPC training programmes, including IPC-A- 610 and J-STD 001 to both Certified IPC Trainer and Certified IPC Specialist levels.
Our Managing Director and one of our Master IPC Trainers, Debbie Wade, is the Vice-chair of the IPC Product Assurance Committee which over sees the IPC Acceptance documents, IPC-A- 600, IPC-A-610, IPC/WHMA-A- 620 etc and their associated training programmes said ‘I am very proud of what these committee volunteers have achieved, especially as this is the first time we were able to release the updated training materials at the same time as the new document release. I would personally like to congratulate the chairpersons and their committee members for their hard work and dedication’
