Revision B remains the only industry-consensus standard for Requirements and Acceptance of Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies. IPC and the Wire Harness Manufacturers Association (WHMA) continued to work together to develop this significant update.

This Revision now has 682 full-color pictures and illustrations – 125 are new or updated. Included in the 19 chapters are criteria for wire prep, soldering to terminals, crimping of stamped and formed contacts and machined contacts, insulation displacement connectors, ultrasonic welding, splicing, connectors, molding, marking, coax/biax cables, wrapping/lacing, shielding, assembly and wire-wrap terminations. 400 pages. Released October 2012.

IPC/WHMA-A-620B-Space Space Applications Electronic Hardware Addendum to IPC/WHMA-A-620B was released June 2013. When specifically required by procurement documentation, this Addendum supplements or replaces specifically identified requirements of IPC/WHMA-A-620B by providing additional requirements to ensure the reliability of cable and wire harness assemblies that must survive the vibration and thermal cyclic environments getting to and operating in space.
