Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
This amendment makes changes to the existing acceptance criteria for copper wrap plating measurements as defined by IPC-6012D. This amendment implements a dual criterion for Class 3 copper wrap plating, based on design effectivity (before and after January 01, 2018), so as not to impose onto legacy designs any additional qualification activity associated with adopting acceptance requirements proven on newer designs. This amendment is not applicable to legacy product that will remain subject to IPC-6012D copper wrap plating requirements. Revisions to such legacy designs, including those made following the release date of this amendment, shall be exempt from the requirements of this amendment.
