Conformal Coating Specification Violation
Is it a violation of any specification to avoid conformal coating encapsulated components and masked areas of the PCBA?
|Expert Panel Responses|
I don't understand the question. To avoid conformal coating? To avoid touching conformally coated components? Needs clarification.
CEO & Managing Partner
The amount and coverage of conformal coating is and must be based upon the product design criteria. For example IPC-A-610 D on page 10-51 states in the Acceptable Class 1, 2, 3: second bullet, - Coating only in those areas where coating is required. This is determined by the design criteria of the product and again should be defined on the Master Drawing.
