RoHS1 Lead (Pb) ≦0.1wt%
Mercury (Hg) ≦0.1wt%
Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6) ≦0.1wt%
Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBBs) ≦0.1wt%
Polybromodiphenyl Ether (PBDEs) ≦0.1wt%
Cadmium (Cd) ≦0.01wt%
RoHS2
From July 22, 2019
4 Phthalates Substances Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) ≦0.1wt%
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) ≦0.1wt%
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) ≦0.1wt%
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) ≦0.1wt%

* The denominator is "homogeneous material"(one material of uniform composition throughout or a material, consisting of a combination of materials, that cannot be disjointed or separated into different materials by mechanical actions)

Below are some examples of our semiconductor products that fall under the exemption. Please refer to RoHS Directive for a correct comprehension of the exemptions.
RoHS Directive is continually revised, therefore please get continuous updates.


【Example of Exemption】

  • High melting point solder, i.e., lead alloy containing 85wt% or more of lead
  • Lead in solder that joins the internal semiconductor chip of IC flip chip package and the board

【Precaution when Making a Purchase】
Please contact our sales for information on exemption from regulation before purchasing our product
