Standards for Defence and Space Electronics
IPC Class 3 High Performance Electronics Products
Due to the demand for high reliability while operating in extremely harsh environments, it is mandated to meet IPC Class 3 standards for the Defence and Space industry.
The Electronics in Class 3 products demand continued high performance and performance-on-demand. Equipment downtime cannot be tolerated, end-use environment may be uncommonly harsh, and the equipment must function when required for industries such as Defence, Avionics, Aerospace, Marine, Data communication, Medical, Automotive or other critical systems. Hence, the requirements for special considerations in terms of design, fabrication and assembly.
Quality is critical where reliability is paramount. Hence, it is a pre-requisite in ensuring quality standards in electronics are applied across the production process for work carried out.
Regardless of whether you manufacture in-house, outsource or a combination of both, upskilling your employees to inspect or perform workmanship to IPC Class 3 Standards will aid in building consistent, reliable products, improving cross channel communications and reducing costs.
