Jumper wire guidelines
We routinely add jumper wires to assembled circuit boards due to the nature of our product line. We need to attach them to all sorts of terminations. Does the IPC have clear guidelines for this? Are there any other resources?
|Expert Panel Responses|
There are a number of places where this type of information is available, IPC-A-610, section 126.96.36.199 for attachment to threaded fasteners, Section 6 for Terminals Connections, which includes various methods to attach and solder wires to different types of terminals. Section 11, Discrete Wiring, 11.2 Jumper wires attached to printed circuit boards and component, be it either leaded or leadless components. IPC 7711/7721 also discusses how to repair printed boards by adding, routing and soldering wires to boards and components.
