What is the difference between the IPC-A-610 and IPC-J-STD-001?

The IPC-A-610 “Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies” is the most widely used inspection standard for PWB manufacturing and assembly for commercial electronics. The book is a visual representation of the accept/reject criteria for soldered connections for all classes of manufacturing. The full color specification includes pictures of virtually every type of component interconnection in use today. It clearly describes the minimal acceptable conditions for each interconnection.

The IPC-J-STD-001 “Requirements for Electrical and Electronic Assemblies” is the industry specification for PWB manufacturing and assembly for commercial electronics. The book describes procedures for producing quality soldered connections and reliable electronic assemblies.

Who uses the IPC-A-610?

The IPC-A-610 document is used by anyone who is responsible for ensuring quality and reliability in electronic assemblies. This includes Inspectors and Quality Personnel, Engineers, Production Personnel, Managers and Trainers.

How should I use the IPC-A-610?

The IPC-A-610 document is designed to be a valuable reference tool for determining quality. Most users keep the document readily available and refer to it constantly. It is widely used as the premier inspection specification, and it is a trainer’s resource for teaching acceptable soldering techniques.

Who uses the IPC-J-STD-001?

The IPC-J-STD-001 document is used by virtually anyone involved in producing electronic assemblies.

How should I use the IPC-J-STD-001?

The IPC-J-STD-001 document is designed to be a reference source for building and soldering assemblies that include Wires & Terminals Technology, Through-Hole Technology and/or Surface Mount Technology.
