IPC-A is the universally accepted standard for electronics assembly defects. During manufacture of electronic assemblies, quality standards are an ongoing concern. Systems for automatic optical inspection AOI are proven ippc secure product quality. The guidelines in IPC-AD are frequently drawn upon to evaluate and classify potential production defects.

When these guidelines are used on 60d AOI system, several aspects need to be considered to ensure IPC-compliant inspection. Production defects during the automated assembly and soldering of electronic assemblies are unavoidable. AOI systems are deployed increasingly to ensure that these defects are detected and to further optimize the SMT assembly process. Frequently, AOI systems are situated after the solder oven for post-reflow inspection, because this inspection stage presents the greatest potential for improving quality.

AOI system performance can be evaluated by defect detection, false alarms, and missed defects.

Recurring themes such as inspection depth, or inspection features and their definition, come to the fore when acceptance criteria are specified. When specifications are described, exact defect definitions — which defects are to be inspected for and what exactly a defect is — are crucial in preventing later misunderstandings.

IPC is the sole reference when inspection depth and features are specified, e. Among the experts, the introduction of a Class 4 is under discussion; still, the just released IPC-AE continues to list three classes.

The criteria for each class are then presented in four stages IPC, 1. Process indicators comprise a special condition. They are not actual defects, yet do not fully satisfy the acceptance criteria. If an increase in process indicators is observed, the process should be analyzed to improve production.

The general criteria for solder connections are dealt with in Chapter 5 of the IPC manual. Chapter 8 covers surface-mount assemblies, where 8. The acceptance criteria are very clearly illustrated, as the following example of a chip component Figure 1 indicates.

Due to space constraints, the criteria from 8.

Figure 1 describes the permissible boundaries of end width for Class 3: This means that the IPC standard was explicitly conceived for human visual inspection. The ideal prospect in many cases is 6110d adopt the dimensions for permissible acceptance conditions displayed in the illustrations as threshold values for AOI.

Insofar as an AOI records proportions on the assembly geometrically, comparison with the adopted thresholds delivers the inspection result. Solder joint length on a Melf. However, one aspect deserves consideration here. This permits a subjective comparison of the schematic depiction with opc actual assembly and the qualitative evaluation of visible features; finer gradations could hardly be implemented.

As well, not all dimensions are provided with thresholds, such as in the definition of solder joint length D on cylindrical end cap connections Melfs. A further example is the handling of “combined conditions. IPC acceptance criteria are defined individually for each single feature; the large number of possible feature combinations prevents a complete definition IPC, 1.

When defect features occur in combination — e. This compounded defect can be detected by human visual inspection, implying that the human factor is critical in implementing IPC-A The IPC standard is a tool, yet does not replace the electronic assembly manufacturer’s responsibility nor that of the AOI manufacturer for the quality of the finished product.

The basic idea is to draw upon IPC 610v final evaluation of the inspection results at the classification station review of the inspection results provided by AOIbuilding a random sampling to verify good and bad examples for the AOI library. The following illustration visually demonstrated in Figure 4 explains this correlation. The AOI system delivers inspection results image data for review at jpc classification station.


Generally, a zero-escape policy is already in place, meaning no defect may be overlooked 1. In actual practice, escapes sometimes occur, such as when defect conditions that pic not previously considered crop up. A good AOI system must provide technology and methodology for such cases, to verifiably preclude repetition of a particular escaped defect. The IPC acceptance criteria are taken into account by IPC-qualified personnel during inspection results classification and their ultimate evaluation 2.

To guarantee the requisite level of knowledge, employees should receive regular training based on pre-classified images. This maintains and documents the quality of evaluations. This provides a valuable verification data base containing good pass and bad fail templates 3. Verification databases can be supplied with inspection systems, and supplemented by the customer.

Corresponding off-line software automatically verifies whether the current parameter settings and thresholds correctly evaluate all template examples in the database separation of classes. This verification also produces explicit documents, so IPC-compliant inspection and zero defect escape can be proven during audits and other process control procedures.

IPC-AD has established and proven itself as a valuable tool in the manual visual inspection of electronic assemblies.

Separation of classes during integrated verification. The assumption that available IPC thresholds need only be uploaded to the AOI and numerically compared with the geometric actual state is inadequate to support a zero-escape approach. In addition to IPC, individual manufacturer requirements can also be incorporated.

Good software tools working automatically and off-line are critical to benefiting from this exceptionally valuable database in connection with an IPC-compliant inspection.

Of course, since the IPC standard also describes many criteria that are not optically visible, this concept can also be fully applied to X-ray ic inspection AXI. Contact the company at http: Use the SMT hashtag.
