New IPC Specification – IPC 640


New IPC fiber optic specification – IPC has just developed a specification and training class for fiber optic assembly.  The new IPC-640 will cover basic fiber optic terminology as well as criteria for cable and fiber preparation, polishing ferrules and several splicing methods.  Circuit Technology participated in the first beta training class and found it very comprehensive and beneficial for fiber optic assembly and repair.  From that beta class there were many recommendations to further boost its effectiveness and those changes are being implemented now.  The official release date is expected soon.  Circuit Technology will stay abreast of the final development and release of this specification and will hold the IPC-640 training class soo after its official release.
