RoHS Compliance Statement

Tekmos semiconductor devices either do not contain cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) or the devices contain unintentional trace amounts of these substances below the concentration values set forth in the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.

Specifically, these devices contains less than 0.1 % by weight per homogeneous material for hexavalent chromium, mercury, PBB and PBDE and 0.01 % by weight per homogeneous material for cadmium. Tekmos interprets homogenous material in accordance with UK Department of Trade and Industry’s RoHS Regulations, Guidance Notes, dated November 2005.

Tekmos RoHS compliant semiconductor devices contain no more than 0.1% lead (Pb) by weight per homogeneous material, only under specific customer requirements shall the devices contain lead (Pb) for usages allowed by the RoHS Directive, as amended.

Tekmos might use any of the following RoHS exemptions for RoHS compliant semiconductor devices:

  RoHS exemptions
6b Lead as an alloying element in aluminum containing up to 0.4% lead by weight.
6c Lead as an alloying element in copper containing up to 4% lead by weight.
7a Lead in high melting temperature type solders (i.e. lead-based alloys containing 85% by weight or more lead).
7c-I Electrical and electronic components containing lead in a glass or ceramic other than dielectric capacitors, e.g. piezoelectric devices, or in a glass or ceramic matrix compound.
15 Lead in solders to complete a viable electrical connection between semiconductor die and carrier within integrated circuit Flip Chip packages.

Tekmos may produce devices with lead (Pb) if required by customer specification. These products would be RoHS compliant when used in OEM applications covered by RoHS exemption (7b) that permits lead in solders for servers, storage and storage array systems, network infrastructure equipment for switching, signaling, or transmission, as well as network management for telecommunications.

To verify that our products are RoHS compliant, Tekmos requires all suppliers to certify the material content data for each homogenous material that they or their subcontractors provide to Tekmos. If you require additional information regarding Tekmos’ RoHS Compliance, please contact us.
