IPC Hand Soldering Competition

The reliability of electronic equipment is ensured by zero-defect soldering processes. This contest recognizes the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies.

Participants will compete against each other to rework a functional electronics assembly within a 50-minute time limit. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610G, IPC J-STD-001G, IPC-7711/21C - Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and overall electrical functionality of the assembly. IPC Master Instructors will serve as judges.
