IPC J-STD-001 Standard Soldering Requirements

Originally published at: https://www.protoexpress.com/blog/ipc-j-std-001-standard-soldering-requirements/

J-STD-001 is a standard issued by IPC for soldered electrical and electronic assemblies. The standard specifies material specifications, process requirements, and acceptability criteria.

We received a question: Is there a standard for the height of the solder in soldering?

The answer is:

Yes, we follow IPC for soldering height. The callout is different for each type of component.

Below examples for your reference:

  1. For rectangular or square end chip components (1,2,3, or 5 side termination)

  2. For BOTTOM termination chip components

  3. For SMT component with J-Lead termination
