The IPC-WP-114A white paper provides guidance to reduce and control exposure to environmental conditions and contamination that promote the development of White Plague. A template for developing a White Plague Control Plan (WPCP) is included.
This document summarizes the IPC position on the subject of “halogen-free” materials for the electronics industry. Its initial release was developed over a period of three years and this revision is also the culmination of another three years of work by a team representing every level of the electronics supply chain. This document is applicable to materials for interconnecting electronics...
Pb-free materials are considered a major technology disruption to traditional Pb-based interconnect materials for electronics, which is of particular concern for the aerospace & defense industries where safety cannot be compromised and applicable reliability data remains scarce. Until validated data and modelling methods are developed, projects considering Pb-free Aerospace & Defense products and...
The IPC-WP-113A white paper provides guidance to reduce and control exposure to environmental conditions and contamination that promote the development of Red Plague. A template for developing a Red Plague Control Plan (RPCP) is included.
The IPC-WP-116A white paper provides guidance to control and mitigate risks associated with the introduction of Foreign Object Debris (FOD) in electrical and electronic assemblies. Guidance to control and mitigate risks associated with the introduction of Foreign Object Debris (FOD) in electrical and electronic assemblies is provided. A template for developing a Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Control...
The IPC-WP-019B white paper was created to support the IPC-J-STD-001H standard and provides additional guidance, examples, and understanding of Section 8.0 Cleaning and Residue Requirements. The IPC-WP-019B has information on how to meet the requirements of IPC-J-STD-001H chapter 8. Recommentded for those looking to implement the requirements of IPC-J-STD-001H standard, chapter 8. 0..
"Final Finish for Connectivity" was presented by George Milad of Uyemura International Corporation at the IPC Conference for the PCB Industry: Critical Issues for the Military Market, in December 2011. The author describes surface finishes applied to printed circuit boards to enhance their reliability, solderability, shelf life and the applicability to wire bonding. He also mentions the IPC...
This specification sets requirements based on performance criteria for the use of Immersion Silver (IAg) as a surface finish for printed circuit boards. It is intended for use by chemical suppliers, printed board manufacturers, electronics manufacturing services (EMS) companies and original equipment manufacturers (OEM). IAg is a thin immersion deposit over copper. It is a multifunctional surface...
This white paper is a benchmarking exercise of e-textile integrations, providing an introductory categorization of how the current market sector is using textile-based electrical components to achieve integrated functionality. This peer assessment provides a baseline understanding of e-textile process techniques, requirements and resources within this emerging sector.
The IPC-WP-026 white paper explores blockchain as an emerging technology that has a core strength in providing an immutable, auditable, transparent and secure environment for data exchanges. These advantages make it a prime candidate for implementation in the electronics industry. The IPC-WP-026 white paper explores blockchain and its limitations and challenges. It also provides a few directions...
