They also are environment sensitive, so they must be used in a controlled environment. This approach has two distinct advantages. Second, because the glass panel is transparent, i;c optical coordinate measuring machine CMM can illuminate the component outline, ioc accurate measurement possible.
This document can be purchased directly from the IPC www. The Reliability Performance form, which is completed by users, documents the reliability of factory-installed machines used in production. To ensure the desired level of accuracy and repeatability, glass slugs are used to represent the more complex devices. It also is necessary to minimize material variation due to component quality, component packaging format and substrate quality.
Lack of a common, industry-wide benchmarking methodology makes placement machine analysis difficult and time-consuming for suppliers and users. Each PVP contains the following component types and kpc.
IPC Releases IPCA, Surface Mount Placement Characterization | IPC
Capacitors were selected over resistors because the outside edges are more precise and geometrically accurate. The SOIC component was selected because it is robust and accurately represents a broad family of coarse-pitch components.
IPC creates a common method for establishing the performance capability of machines used to place surface mount components. The Placement Performance Metric form, which is completed by suppliers, reports general machine performance by model type and confirms the performance of a specific machine by serial number. Several standardized forms have been created to record measurement results.
Five component types were selected to represent the full range of components placed by this type of equipment: Placement equipment evaluations always have been confusing and complicated. IPC combines placement rate and placement quality so speed and accuracy parameters depend on each other. A single glass panel, referred to as the placement verification panel PVPhas been developed and standardized. Ic is accomplished by placing standardized components on clear glass panels that have been coated with a sticky media.
Both components are economical and available in tape-and-reel, which are key attributes. Several years ago, the IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries sponsored an effort to develop a placement equipment evaluation model that would be accepted and used by placement machine suppliers and customers alike. Accuracy must be determined using a NIST-certified gauge, which in this case is a clear glass verification panel with selected component opc etched into the glass.

Contact him at ; E-mail: These glass panels also must be certified using an internationally recognized standards institute. To measure placement machine capability accuracy, it is necessary to eliminate process variables introduced by other surface mount processes.
Optical CMMs are delicate instruments that require accurate calibration. Each combination component and 8950 is referred to as a component group: This document was developed to standardize the parameters, measurement procedures and methodologies used for the specification, evaluation and continuing verification of placement equipment parameters.
Although this method is not an ideal simulation of an actual production environment, it was selected to eliminate as much assembly variation as possible so that it could be performed at various locations. The accuracy and repeatability of the optical CMM must be considerably better than the accuracy and repeatability of the placement machine being evaluated. Also, ipf of the convergence of high-accuracy i.
Placement Equipment Characterization Using IPC-9850
A clear glass substrate coated with a sticky media is used for component mounting. Although some commonality does exist, most suppliers historically have developed their own methods for establishing placement performance in terms of placement rate, accuracy, repeatability, etc.
It will reduce the effort required to evaluate and analyze surface mount placement machines, and it also should reduce disagreement between users and suppliers regarding equipment performance and functionality. This long overdue document will benefit everyone.
