|A-610 Recertification for Rev "D" On Line|
As the date for RoHS compliance draws near and the demand from customers to begin building "lead- free" assemblies increases, the need for training on acceptability criteria of PCBs is becoming more acute. These acceptance criteria amongst other upgrades to the A-610 specification are outlined in the latest A-610 standard.
