PROCUREMENT SPECIFICATION FOR RIGID PRINTED BOARDS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS AND OTHER HIGH RELIABILITY USES
|Publication Date:||16 July 1997|
This specification establishes requirements for rigid printed boards. The boards may be single-sided, double sided with or without plated-through holes, multilayer with or without buried/blind vias, and metal core boards. These requirements are generally in accordance with IPC-6011 and -6012 with additional construction, inspection and product assurance requirements specified.
Purpose. This specification provides general requirements and quality assurance provisions for rigid printed boards procured for use in spacecraft and scientific instruments for space applications and other high reliability uses.
Applicability. This specification is applicable to all NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) programs and contracts using printed boards for space flight applications and critical ground support equipment. It shall be invoked on all procurements for flight and critical ground support equipment (see note below) printed wiring boards. It shall apply to both in-house and contractor procurements and also to any sub-tier vendor manufacturing printed boards for GSFC programs or contracts.
NOTE: Critical ground support equipment is mission-peculiar ground support equipment that interferes with the flight system which, in any way through its malfunction, can damage or functionally impair the flight system.
