Handbook and Guide to Supplement J-STD-001 (Includes J-STD-001B to C Comparison)
|Publication Date:||1 March 1998|
This handbook, with Amendment 1, is a companion reference and comparison guide to J-STD-001B and IPC/EIA J-STD-001C. The amendment to IPC-HDBK-001 is to identify and incorporate changes as a result of J-STD-001 Revision C, including new material. Tables 1-1 (sorted in Revision B order) and 1-2 (sorted in Revision C order) will assist users with locating support information in this handbook and in identifying changes between the revisions.
With the present transition from prescriptive "how to" specifications to performance-based standards, much of the tutorial information that was provided in J-STD-001A was removed. While the main thrust of J-STD-001 remains process control in the assembly of products, the Scope of the Standard was revised, as were many technical requirements. The intent of this handbook is to capture the "how to" information and give more background for the specification limits and how they were derived. In addition, other supporting information is provided to give a broader understanding of the process considerations needed for the production of acceptable hardware. The target reader of this handbook is a process or manufacturing engineer.
