Updated PCB Specification - 14 crucial requirements in the production of PCBs

The NCAB Group’s standard specifications for PCBs requirements stretches to 31 pages, covering more than 100 separate criteria. These have been formulated during the 20 years the company has been producing PCBs, primarily in Asia. The product specification has taken shape in an ongoing process of improvement. This has included taking into account every fault or deviation reported by our customers as a starting point for further improving our product.

A competent specification results in a better PCB, leading to lower
costs for our customers, given the considerable costs that can arise
from faults during production and particularly in the field.
Several of our requirements significantly exceed those stated in IPC
Class 2. As we see it, the IPC requirements have been designed to
meet the needs of a broad range of product and industry sectors.
NCAB’s customers often demand considerably higher standards,
with many of their products having a minimum 20-year life cycle,
are often manufactured or assembled in high-cost countries, where
faults or stoppages can prove extremely costly.

We have compiled a list of 14 crucial requirements in the production
of PCBs. We have also indicated which of these are “Beyond IPC”,
i.e. stricter than the IPC requirements.
We have highlighted those requirements, which in our opinion as a
PCB producer, we consider to be unique to the NCAB Group.
Our PCB specification is a dynamic document, part of our ongoing
improvement process in which we actively seek input by our team of
30 technicians as well as our customers.
