Visitors are invited to compete in IPC‘s popular hand soldering competition. The popular competition returns to Southern Manufacturing. To compete, visitors have 60 minutes to assemble a complex PCB using a hand solder. They will be judged in accordance with IPC-A-610 Class 3 criteria. Each competitor’s entry will be inspected and rated according to the overall quality of the results achieved.
