IPC J-STD-001 Space and Military Applications

Space electronics hardware will be exposed to rigorous thermal cycles and intense vibration during acceptance and/or qualification testing, as well as during launch and mission life. In some cases, this requires criteria that are different than what is provided in the base document.

Support quality assurance initiatives for space applications with certification on this Essential Extra Space Module

This additional module provides requirements to be used in addition to, and in some cases, in place of, those published in IPC J-STD-001. The goal is to provide users with the necessary knowledge and understanding of specific criteria for soldered connections in electrical and electronic assemblies for space applications in relation to the thermal cyclic environments and vibration experienced during traveling and operation in space.

This IPC J-STD-001 Space addendum has been developed by a group of specialists, amongst the people working at NASA, BAE Systems, Boeing, Honeywell Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Company, Rockwell Collins.
