RoHS Compliance

Global sensitivities towards the environment continue to increase and the use of harmful compounds and substances in commercial & industrial devices is a growing concern. RoHS 2 (Directive 2011/65/EU Annex II) restricts 10 hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and requires manufacturers to prepare EU declaration of conformity and affix CE markings on finished products. The substances and limits are:

  • Cadmium(Cd): 0.01%
  • Mercury: 0.1%
  • Lead(Pb): 0.1%
  • Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+): 0.1%
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB): 0.1 %
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE): 0.1 %
  • Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP): 0.1%
  • Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP): 0.1%
  • Dibutyl phthalate (DBP): 0.1%
  • Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP): 0.1%

QuickLogic is strongly committed to the movement to minimize or eliminate the use of hazardous materials in our products. This is in alignment with our corporate Environment, Health and Safety direction and we work closely with our supply chain to meet these goals. All Quicklogic Lead(Pb) Free devices are 100% RoHS 2 compliant.

Lead Free Implementation

A major impact on semiconductor components is the ability to handle the higher reflow temperatures required for board mounting of Lead(Pb) Free solder systems. This is due to the different material sets used to assemble packages in order to meet Lead(Pb) Free requirements. QuickLogic has chosen the Sn/Ag/Cu alloy as the solder ball alloy for laminate/ball grid array products, and Sn(matte) as the lead finish for lead-frame based products.
