IPC 6012 Revision D has just been amended. This is the Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards so important to the electronics industry. The new IPC 6012 D Amendment 1 is available now from Document Center Inc. Currently it is only available in pdf format (single user download and site license). It updates the IPC 6012 D that I reviewed back in 2015.
The IPC 6012 D Amendment makes changes to the existing acceptance criteria for copper wrap plating measurements. These changes will be valid moving forward (that is, after January 1, 2018). So your legacy designs will not be impacted. The new dual criterion for Class 3 copper wrap plating is for newer designs only.
The balance of the Revision D remains stable. You’ll continue to use this standard for the qualification and performance of rigid printed boards. This includes such topics as final finish and surface plating requirements, conductors, holes (vias), frequency of acceptance test and quality conformance. Electrical, mechanical and environmental requirements are also included.
To get your copy of the new amendment, go to the Document Center Inc. webstore at www.document-center.com. The new publication is featured in our trending documents section. Here is a link directly to the order page for the IPC 6012 D Amendment 1 for your convenience.
As an authorized distributor of the IPC standards, Document Center Inc. is able to provide you with access to the documents in paper and pdf format. You can also buy site licensing from us as well. You’ll notice that the CD Rom format is no longer available for most IPC standards, making the old “kit” option obsolete as well.
