IPC 6012 Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards
This specification covers qualification and performance of rigid PCBs including with or without plated-through holes, single-sided, double-sided, multilayer with or without blind/buried vias and metal core boards. It addresses final finish and surface plating coating requirements, conductors, holes/vias, frequency of acceptance testing and quality conformance as well as electrical, mechanical and environmental requirements. This Rev C incorporates several new requirements in the areas of procurement, new surface finishes, hole plating thickness, measling, weave exposure, copper cap plating of filled holes, laminate cracks and voids, etchback, blind and buried via fill, acceptance testing and frequency, and requirements for thermal stres testing. This revision lines up with the IPC-A-600H. April 2010 and 52 pages.
