Some Questions Answered About IPC J-STD-001F and IPC A-610F

Two leading standards for the electronics assembly industry have been revised. IPC J-STD-001F, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies is recognized worldwide as the sole industry-consensus standard for soldering processes and materials. IPC-A-610FAcceptability of Electronic Assemblies, is a post-assembly acceptance standard used to ensure electronics assemblies meet the most current acceptance requirements.

Some significant changes to IPC-J-STD-001F and IPC-A-610F standards include:

  • Requirements added for two new SMT terminations
    • P-Style terminations
    • Butt/I terminations — Solder charged terminations
  • Revised Class 2 plated-through hole vertical solder fill requirements
  • Revised void criteria for BGA/CSP components
  • Revised class 2 flux activity criteria
