The IPC classifications set the rules to follow when designing a printed circuit board. And between Class 2 and Class 3, the design requirements are fairly different. How much do you know about the different design rules for IPC Class 2 and Class 3? Take the quiz and find out!
As a circuit board manufacturer, we are often asked about the difference between IPC Class 2 and Class 3. Class 1 does exist although we rarely produce boards that fall into this classification. Most of the times, even if the end-use of the product only requires Class 1, we will make it Class 2 just to ensure a better performance. This article will help you understand the different design rules for IPC Class 2 and Class 3 circuit boards.
