IPC Offers Tech Ed Course on Utilizing J-STD-001 and IPC-A-620 Together


Reading time ( words)

IPC’s popular standards, J-STD-001, recognized globally for its criteria on soldering processes and materials, and IPC-A-610, the most widely used electronics assembly acceptance document, complement each other when used together. IPC offers a new technical education course, Process and Acceptability Requirements: Utilizing J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Together, to provide instruction on how best to use these documents jointly.

This course is ideally suited for process engineers, quality managers, auditors and others defining contractual requirements for soldering and acceptance.

Attendees will learn:

  •     How these documents complement each other and where they differ;
  •     How to provide clear instructions on drawings and documentation;
  •     What takes precedence when a conflict occurs in the requirements;
  •     How to navigate the complex world of ensuring staff training and proficiency requirements can be met.
  •     What is needed to properly flow down requirements to suppliers and the pitfalls of taking shortcuts.

“J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 are written and revised in synergy,” said Teresa Rowe, senior director, assembly and standards technology, “so it makes sense to use them together. This course is designed to teach attendees how to use these standards jointly.”

Courses will be offered in the following locations:

  • April 2, 2019, King of Prussia, Pennsylania (full-day course)
  • May 5-6, 2019, Nuremberg, Germany (full-day course delivered over two half days)
  • September 10, 2019, Huntsville, Alabama (full-day course)
  • December 3, 2019, Anaheim, California (full-day course)

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.

IPC Mexico Continues to Grow

07/20/2022 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.
