PRODUCT ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE
The elimination of hazardous materials from products is a global initiative, with each region or country imposing its own legislation to eliminate these harmful substances from the environment.
The European Union passed the "Restriction on Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment," or "RoHS" legislation 2002/95/EC, which became effective July 1, 2006, and RoHS Recast 2011/65/EU, which was enforced from Jan. 2 2013, followed by 2015/863/EU, which is a revision to RoHS Recast in June 2015.
People's Republic of China will enforce "Management Methods of Controlling Pollution Caused By Electronic Information Products," Ministry of Information Industry order #39 on March 1, 2007.
The transition to lead-free products is a complex task that affects all electronics component suppliers and poses many supply chain, handling and reliability challenges. It involves the replacement of materials used in solder finishes and printed circuit board assembly with non-lead-based material.
Broadcom offers a broad portfolio of RoHS-compliant products. The use of new non-lead-based processes and materials make them fully compliant with the requirements of the RoHS directive. Rigorous testing procedures ensure the performance integrity of Broadcom’s portfolio of products; regardless of the materials and processes employed.
For inquiries on product availability or samples please contact Broadcom Limited or designated distributors.
For inquiries on lead-free product environmental information or technical matters: Ask the Lead-Free experts.
