IPC-A-600J: Acceptability of Printed Boards Table of Contents

IPC-A-600J is a standard published by the Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC), which provides visual acceptance criteria for printed circuit board (PCB) and printed wiring board (PWB) quality. The standard covers acceptance criteria for several types of surface conditions, hole conditions, and other features of PCBs, as well as guidelines for testing, inspection, and acceptance.

IPC-A-600J is the most current revision of the IPC-A-600 standard, which was first published in 1964. The standard is widely used by the electronics industry to ensure consistent quality and reliability of PCBs, and is considered an important reference for PCB manufacturing, inspection, and testing.


The most complete illustrated guide to the acceptability of printed boards! This document is in four colors and has photos and drawings of the target, acceptable. and nonconforming conditions that can be seen from the inside or outside of bare printed boards. Make sure that your operators, inspectors, and engineers have the latest information from the industry. Revision J adds new information on microvia contact dimensions, plating, voiding, and filling. It also expands and updates information on dielectric removal (etchback, smear, and wicking). plating folds. surface plating for edge connectors, SMT and BGA pads. marking, hole registration, delamination, cap plating, via fill, and flexible circuits. It has 120 new or updated photos and illustrations. The requirements for acceptability in IPC-6012D and IPC-6013C are met by the document. Replaces the IPC-A-600H.

What are IPC Standards for PCB?

IPC, or the Institute for Printed Circuits, is a global trade organization that develops and publishes standards for the electronics manufacturing industry. IPC standards for printed circuit boards (PCBs) cover a wide range of topics, including design, materials, manufacturing processes, assembly, and testing.

Some of the most commonly referenced IPC standards for PCBs include:

  1. IPC-A-600: This standard establishes the acceptability criteria for the visual and dimensional inspection of bare printed circuit boards.
  2. IPC-6012: This standard covers the qualification and performance of rigid printed boards, including requirements for materials, construction, and testing.
  3. IPC-6013: This standard covers the qualification and performance of flexible printed boards, including requirements for materials, construction, and testing.
  4. IPC-4101: This standard establishes the requirements for base materials used in the manufacture of printed boards.
  5. IPC-7351: This standard provides guidelines for the design of surface mount components and the land patterns used to attach them to printed circuit boards.

These are just a few examples of the many IPC standards that exist for printed circuit boards. By following these standards, manufacturers can ensure that their products are of a high quality and will perform as intended.
