The current state of PCB standards - what you need to know.
Chair of IPC 6012-DA talks about the factors addressed when revising the automotive standard
Cleanliness, solder mask thickness, inspection, and wicking! How will the demands for these factors be presented in the revised edition of IPC 6012-DA?
The Automotive Addendum task group has existed since November 2014. The first edition of IPC 6012-DA was released in April 2016. We are now working on the revised version, expected a release in Q2 2018. As standards need to evolve, develop and follow the needs of the industry, this work is continuous.
