European - relaxed attitude | 20 July, 2000

With the latest date for European phase-out set for 2008 (by which time we will be joining devices to boards using completely new - probably orgainc - means) why should we be at all worried about lead-free issues here in Europe?

That�s a good question which I will leave to others to debate further. I feel that there will be a need to examine and understand all the issues with lead-free and have as many practical solution as possible ready rather than waiting.

There are still many issues and we still don�t know all the questions.

The latest issues has been lifting, cracking, lifted pads on PIHR with lead free ?
