Standards, standards and more standards. When it comes to bare printed circuit boards, two key documents stand out, the IPC-A-600 “Acceptability of Printed Boards” and IPC-6012 “Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards”. With that said, which document is important to you and more importantly how do you use these standards and apply their requirements in everyday situations?
If you are looking at an IPC Certification to obtain, which one makes sense for you and your staff? Both of them, or is the audience different for each specification? Join us for a few minutes, and as always, bring your questions about these standards and we will do our best to guide you through these, confusing at times, issues.
Topics we will be reviewing are:
- What are these documents for and how are they used.
- Major changes within these standards.
- Utilization of these documents for purchasing and accepting boards.
- Certifications and the audiences they serve.
