BEST Inc.’s IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space Addendum Training Program teaches practical knowledge and the use of the specification on cable harnesses when building them for space applications. The cable and wire harnesses must function flawlessly despite thermal cycling and vibration inherent in space environments for space applications. Individuals passing the requirements for the accreditation will receive a valued mobile credential that acknowledges their understanding of the Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies as stated in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space addendum.

In response to a query about their services, the spokesperson of BEST Inc. commented: “This class has practical parts to it regarding outfitting and building cable and wire harness assemblies made for space applications. Cable-making exercises support this course and it ends with a qualification examination. The majority of time in the class is spent hands-on. To be able to sit for the IPC-A-620 Space Addendum course, the individual must have the base IPC/WHMA-A-620 CIS certification as a requirement. This is a five day course.”

Individuals would learn how to build and install cables as a part of the course. Soldering, wire splices, attaching wires to IDC connections, crimping machine contacts, shield terminations, soldering to cup terminals, testing of the final product, crimping insulated lugs, shrink tubing, coax connectors, shielding-braid, and routing using ty-raps/lacing cord are all skills which would be demonstrated and taught as part of the course. When students have completed the course, they will be certified for 24 months. For the IPC 620 certification program, visit the website.

The spokesperson added: “Assembly technicians, in-process quality inspectors, wire and cable harness fabricators, and incoming quality inspectors, are the targeted students for this class. Using a standard jumper wire is not the best option when you have a design that needs modifications or changes at a BGA site. Jumper wires are just too big to fit under a BGA component. A rework or modification needs a flat copper ribbon that is thin enough to fit comfortably under the BGA component. This BGA repair would allow you to keep your design and avoid the expenses of doing a new board build.”

BEST Inc. offers unique solutions for reworking BGA and other grid array devices. The company’s engineers have created easier processes that make the repair and rework of BGA more reliable and consistent. The company has dealt with the rework of BGAs since their inception and have continued to stay relevant with the most recent techniques and styles. If anyone requires expensive components from a PCB, then BEST Inc. is the BEST place for BGA component salvaging and reworking BGA services. Meanwhile, the course on PCB inspection runs for just a day and is a practical discussion session that works on the skills learned in the IPC-A-610 certification.
