        IPC Delivers the First Automotive Standard on Performance Requirements for Rigid Printed Boards

In September of 2015, IPC delivered revision D of IPC-6012, Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards. Building on this base standard, IPC has developed the first automotive addendum, IPC-6012DA, Automotive Applications Addendum to IPC-6012D Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards.
 
This addendum addresses the reliability of rigid printed boards which must survive the vibration and thermal cycling environments of electronic interconnects within the automotive industry. Some of the highlights included with IPC-6012DA are the identification of automotive performance classes, recommendations for sustainability and reliability testing identification, and solder makes thickness coverage over conductors, planes, and adjacent surface mount devices. The addendum also provides requirement
