To guarantee the requisite level of knowledge, employees should receive regular training based on pre-classified images. They are not actual defects, yet do not fully satisfy the acceptance criteria.

The acceptance criteria are very clearly illustrated, as the following example of a chip component Figure 1 kpc. When these guidelines are used on an AOI system, several aspects need to be considered to ensure IPC-compliant inspection.

IPC (electronics)

As a special bonus of our course we share our long term knowledge of soldering theory, bare PCB manufacturing process, component design and requirements limitations and cleaning of electronic assemblies. These files are being made available to update existing training PowerPoints in each of the indicated courses with the changes in the Amendments for each course.

This maintains and documents the quality of evaluations. Chapter 8 covers surface-mount assemblies, where 8. Statistical programs cover the electronics manufacturing services EMSprinted kpc board PCBlaminate, process consumables, solder and assembly equipment segments.

There are more than trainers worldwide who are certified to train and test on the standard.

IPC-A Training and Certification | IPC

AOI system performance can be evaluated by defect detection, false alarms, and missed defects. Printing a test copy on a blank piece of paper first. An industry developed and approved program that includes training, certification and instructional materials based on the IPC-A is available to your company. As a member-driven organization and leading source for industry standards, training, market research and public policy advocacy IPC supports programs to meet the needs of the entire trillion global electronics industry.


Frequently, AOI systems are situated after the solder oven for post-reflow inspection, because this inspection stage presents the greatest potential for improving quality. Additional languages are continuously being added.

Current number of member companies 61d more than In order to improve such knowledge, we add some basic theory of soldering, explain structure of solder joint, its strain in the assembly life and main factors and factors which have influence on fatigue of solder joint. Separation of classes during integrated verification. The IPC acceptance criteria are taken into account by IPC-qualified personnel during inspection results classification and their ultimate evaluation 2.

To use the files: Inthe organization formally changed its 610c to IPC with the accompanying tagline, Association 61d Electronics Industries. Solder joint length on a Melf. AG Training Materials Checklist. This provides a valuable verification data base containing good pass and bad fail templates 3. Back to top of page.

The slides are intended to be used with revision 6 of the Policy and Procedures document. For participants from Czech and Slovak Republic, the primary language is Czech. Its name was later changed to the Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits to highlight the expansion from bare boards to packaging and electronic assemblies.

IPC-AD for AOI: Integrated Verification Enables IPC-compliant PCB Inspection

The program has given the entire facility a much higher level of common knowledge about terminology and important concepts. Corresponding off-line software automatically verifies whether the current parameter settings and thresholds correctly evaluate all template examples in the database separation of classes. The program provides individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of the IPC-A This permits a subjective comparison of the schematic depiction with the actual assembly and the qualitative evaluation of visible features; finer gradations could hardly be implemented.


Task groups have been formed in China, the United States, and Denmark. Standards are i;c by committees of industry ioc. IPC is the sole reference when inspection depth and features are specified, e. You must create an account to receive a response. The assumption that available IPC thresholds need only be uploaded to the AOI and numerically compared with the geometric actual state is inadequate to support a zero-escape approach. This verification also produces explicit documents, so IPC-compliant inspection and zero defect escape can be proven during audits and other process control procedures.

Monthly market reports for the EMS and PCB segments provide recent data on market size, sales and order growth, book-to-bill ratios and near-term forecasts. For that, the student should have at least minimal knowledge of the process. A further example is the handling of “combined conditions. IPC-A is the universally accepted standard for electronics assembly defects.

Certified IPC Trainers may teach the course at any location and to any audience and may set a training fee, if applicable. During manufacture of electronic assemblies, quality standards are an ongoing concern.
