Can anyone explain why there is no Space and Military addendum for IPC-6013, as available for IPC-6012 and IPC-6018, considering that flex and flex-rigid PCBs are used in space and military equipment?


Expert Panel Responses

We have been using class 3 for space and military for a very long time and have not seen any issues with flex and rigid flex that requires a separate specification.
