DoD Adopted! IPC-A-610F with Amendment 1 incorporates the requirements of IPC-A-610F and IPC-A-610F Amendment 1 into one document. Criteria are presented in a seamless IPC-A-610 format, and there are no redline marks. This document is the equivalent to using IPC-A-610F and IPC-A-610F Amendment 1. IPC brings this version to industry to minimize confusion for those using both documents and those wishing to update their documentation with the latest available format.
IPC-A-610 is the most widely used electronics assembly standard in the world. A must for all quality assurance and assembly departments, IPC-A-610F illustrates industry-accepted workmanship criteria for electronics assemblies through detailed statements reflecting acceptable and defect conditions, supported by full-color photographs and illustrations. This lates revision, IPC A-610F includes two new SMT termination styles, as well as changes in plated-through hole fill and BGA void criteria. Additionally, wherever possible statements were modified to make readability easier and to enhance understanding — all without eliminating any requirements.
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.
IPC-A-610 is invaluable for all inspectors, operators and trainers. Revision F has 814 photos and illustrations of acceptability criteria — 86 of them new or updated. The document synchronizes to the requirements expressed in other industry consensus documents and is most often used with the material and process standard IPC J-STD-001.
For a more complete understanding of this document’s recommendations and requirements, one may use this document in conjunction with IPC-HDBK-001, IPC-AJ-820, and IPC J-STD-001.
