Ensure IPC-A-610 Compliance with Cybord’s Advanced Solution

In the intricate world of electronic manufacturing, maintaining high standards of quality and reliability is crucial. The IPC-A-610 Rev. H standard serves as a benchmark for electronic assembly acceptance, and the Cybord platform emerges as a pivotal tool in achieving this compliance.

Cybord’s In-depth Component Analysis

Cybord’s approach to electronic manufacturing involves a comprehensive inspection of components, utilizing both bottom and top side analyses during Pick and Place (PNP) and Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) operations.

  • Bottom Side Analysis: This process involves capturing images of components after pick-up and before placement by the PnP machine. Cybord’s software analyzes these images for visual quality features, identifying issues like damage, corrosion, and structural irregularities, ensuring each component meets robustness and reliability standards.
  • Top Side Analysis: The AOI machine captures images of the assembled board from the top side. Cybord analyzes these images, inspecting markings and identifiers to ensure clarity, accuracy, and compliance with industry standards.

Key IPC-A-610 Requirements and Cybord Compliance

  • Defects on Component Leads/Terminations (Section 8.2.2): Cybord meticulously examines each lead for damage or deformation exceeding 10% of the lead’s diameter, width, or thickness, aligning with IPC-A-610 standards.
