In the case of a discrepancy, the description or written criteria always takes precedence over the illustrations.
Standards may be updated at any time, including with the use of amendments. The use of an amendment or newer revision is not automatically required.
IPC-A-610G is the most widely used electronics assembly acceptance document. Updated with participants from 17 countries providing input and expertise, this document brings the latest criteria along with many new and revised graphics to the industry. This is a must-have for inspectors, operators and others with an interest in the acceptance criteria for electronic assemblies. IPC-A-610G is developed in synergy with J-STD-001G, and for the first time with this revision, IPC/WHMA-A-620C.
