Version: *A

 

Question:

What is the definition of Cypress Flash Memory "Pb-free (lead-free)" packages?

 

Answer:

Cypress Pb-free memory packages use solder and other materials that have a maximum of 0.1% Pb (percent by weight). This is the definition proposed in September 2003 by the EU for Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS). It is also the maximum allowable concentration for Pb found in EU Directive 2000/53/EC for vehicle end of life and is the definition most commonly being provided by our customers.
