IPC-A-610E Japanese Language Released: Industry Requirements for Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies Updated

Apr 03, 2012

 IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® announced the Japanese language release of the E revision of IPC-A-610, 電子組立品の許容基準. IPC’s most widely-used standard. This document provides visual acceptance criteria for post assembly mechanical and soldering assembly requirements. The E revision of IPC-A-610 addresses additional technologies, including flexible circuits, board in board, package on package, depanelization and additional SMT terminations.
The photos and drawings that show good and bad connections, considered one of the most important features of IPC-A-610, have also been upgraded. The E revision contains 165 new or updated illustrations, bringing the total to more than 800.
In addition, the standard has been revamped for ease of use and clarity. Sections have been reorganized so data and images are easier to find and to make it easier to use. Zenaida Valianu, training and development specialist at Celestica agrees, “The document is more intuitive and manageable than before, allowing users to navigate more easily and locate information promptly.”


The many changes that have occurred in array packaging since the standard’s last revision are also addressed in the E revision, as are changes to hot tear and filet lifting.


Designers and manufacturers will appreciate criteria for package-on-package technologies, often used to boost solid-state memory capacity, and for board-in-board connections, where daughter boards can be mounted perpendicular to the assembly using a through-the-board method.


IPC is grateful to Celestica Japan KK for its assistance in translating this important document into Japanese,” says Jack Crawford, IPC director of certification.
