TEST METHODS MANUAL
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
This manual establishes uniform methods for testing electronic and electrical parts including basic environmental, physical and electrical tests. These tests were developed to support IPC standards and specifications.
The tests described herein are not to be interpreted as an exact and conclusive representation of actual service operation in any one geographic location, since it is known that the only true test for operation in a specific location is an actual service test at that point. The specified test conditions for a test method are those, which are obtainable in the laboratory and result in reproducible results.
No attempt has been made to include pass/fail criteria in the test methods. This information is found in the individual specifications and standards that reference the specific test method.
