IPC Releases G Revisions of Two Widely Used Standards, IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001

Nov 07, 2017

IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has released the G revisions of the two most widely used standards in the electronic industry, IPC-J-STD-001, Requirements of Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies. These two documents are on a three-year renewal cycle, keeping pace with the everchanging technology within the electronics industry.

The dedicated committee volunteers coming from 17 countries and their chair persons for IPC-A-610G: Constantino J. Gonzalez, ACME Training & Consulting; Mary Muller, Crane Aerospace & Electronics; Robert P. Fornefeld, L3 Communications; and for IPC-J-STD-001G: Daniel L. Foster, Missile Defense Agency; Kathy L. Johnston, Raytheon Missile Systems; are to be congratulated for delivering the G revisions for standards on time. Their arduous work can be seen in the G revisions of the standards.

Often used as companion documents, IPC J-STD-001G and IPC-A 610G each has a unique purpose. IPC-A-610G remains as the visual quality acceptance standard for post assembly products used in today’s electronics industry. IPC J-STD-001G continues to be the materials and process requirements document critical for use during manufacturing. Each standard has significant changes and updates that keep pace with the changes within the industry. Some of these changes include updated criteria for both through hole and surface mount in IPC-A-610. Other changes include replacement of the “Space Shuttle Symbol” with the “International Space Station Symbol,” and updates to the general and product assurance sections of IPC J-STD-001.

An IPC first was reached with the release of the G revisions for IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001. The IPC training and certification team, with exceptional support from the master IPC trainer (MIT) and certified IPC trainer (CIT) Beta teams, delivered updated training and certification materials. Kris Roberson, IPC manager of certification and training products and portfolio products, and his beta teams in Europe and the United States worked to deliver the training and certification materials at the same time as the release of the G revisions. Companies can now train their employees to the latest G revision of the standards.

In addition, the redline documents for IPC-A-610G and IPC J-STD-001G are available. By delivering the redline documents at the release of the new revision, the users of the standards can see what changes were made immediately.

Translations of the G revisions will be released in the coming months. For more information on IPC J-STD-001G, IPC-A-610G, the redline documents and training and certification materials, visit www.IPC.org/onlinestore.
