Tutorial Program to Focus on J-STD-001F & IPC-A-610F Inspection

Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Huntsville Chapter will be holding a tutorial program titled "J-STD-001F & IPC-A-610F Inspection - Are You Up to the Task?" on October 15, 2015, at the NASA Educator Resource Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Two leading standards for the electronics assembly industry have been revised:

  • IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, which is recognized worldwide as the sole industry-consensus standard for soldering processes and materials; and,
  • IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, which is a post-assembly acceptance standard used to ensure electronics assemblies meet the most current acceptance requirements.

This workshop will cover some of the most significant changes to both of these standards with the release of the F revision. This includes the requirements added for two new SMT terminations (P-Style terminations and Butt/I terminations — Solder charged terminations); revised Class 2 plated-through hole vertical solder fill requirements; revised void criteria for BGA/CSP components; revised class 2 flux activity criteria; and expanded conformal coating section.

In addition to the review of the changes resulting from these revisions, this workshop will focus on the practical application of the revised criteria on actual printed circuit boards and samples. Those individuals who successfully completed the graded portion of the inspection exercises will receive a certificate of proficiency. The workshop will be facilitated by Ray Cirimele of STI Electronics Inc.

90% Solder Dross Recovery: Eliminate Waste, Save Money

10/20/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
The impact of 90% solder dross recovery can have a substantial impact on reducing waste and increasing cost savings. Nolan Johnson recently spoke with Jay Hardin, MS2® product manager at P. Kay Metal, about the process and benefits of efficient solder dross recovery, as well as product roadmaps, the soldering machine market, and raw materials supply chain for solder alloy manufacturing. As Jay says, “For many companies, the savings are in the thousands or millions” of dollars.
