IPC Provides Additional Format for Your Convenience

May 16, 2016

Two of IPCs most popular documents, IPC-A-610F and IPC J-STD-001F can now be obtained in an additional format per the request of some IPC members. This notice is to introduce the new format to IPC customers.

IPC-A-610 Revision F with Amendment 1 and J-STD -001 Revision F with Amendment 1, where the Amendment 1 is incorporated into the document,are being released in this format per the request of some IPC customers who wanted the criteria presented in one document. To make it clear, the documents in this format are not redline documents and do not show where the changes were made from Revision F to the Amendment. 

IPC recognizes some organizations will not want to introduce this new format into their facilities. For those organizations you can continue to use the base document IPC-A-610F and IPC-A-610FAM1 (D) 1 (Amendment 1) in their current form. Unlike previous revisions with amendments incorporated, IPC will continue to make IPC-A-610F and the Amendment 1 available in their current format. 

For example, using the IPC-A-610F with IPC-A-610FAM1(D)1 is the equivalent to using IPC-A-610 Revision F with Amendment 1 incorporated. There are no differences in criteria in the documents, just the format. 

IPC will not accept or honor exchanges of either IPC-A-610F and IPC-A-610FAM1 (D) 1 or J-STD-001F and J-STD-001FAM1(D)1 for the newly formatted documents.  In an effort to also facilitate the training effort, CITs and MITs may choose whether to teach the Revision F or Revision F with Amendment 1 in their training classes depending on student needs.

For additional clarity below you can see how the product is listed in the IPC online store:

A-610F, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies
