Each year, a new slew of terms and definitions become commonplace in the manufacturing process. To meet these needs, IPC – the Association Connecting Electronics Industries has released the report T-50 Revision M, Terms and Definitions for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits.
T-50M delivers users the most up-to-date descriptions and illustrations of electronic interconnect industry terminology. It is a dynamic standard that adapts to the industry to provide the most thorough dictionary in the industry.
Revision M brings over 150 new terms, while eliminating out-of-date terminology in order to provide a streamlined standard that focuses on the trending language of the electronics industry. This revision includes terms often cited in other standards, such as conformal coating, statistical process control, and stencil design, to name a few.
