Jul 24, 2015 | ROHS compliance for contract manufacturer ROHS compliance for contract manufacturer little behind are we? look in the archives from 2002-2005 when ROHS was implemented. however no real requirement here, ask your customer what they are after, most simply want a c of c stating its ROHS compliant, if your are talking REACH, that's a entirely different story. id say you have far more work on developing the ROHS process in your shop than you do getting documentation established

Oct 14, 2010 | ROHS 6/6 BGA device in Non-ROHS reflow ROHS 6/6 BGA device in Non-ROHS reflow Hi All, Is there any way to use ROHS6/6 [Non-leaded] BGA device in Non-ROHS reflow [240 Deg C] temp. environment. I need to do this because Leaded [ROHS5/6] device I was using is obsolete and Non-leaded[ROHS6/6] drop-in-replacement part is available now . One way out I am thinking is, not sure if it is correct or not. - Can we use leaded solder paste/solder cream for soldering this Non-leaded[ROHS6/6]device on board? Because of lower temp. [240 Deg.C] this Non-leaded[ROHS6/6] device balls may not melt but leaded solder paste [suppose to melt at 240C

Jun 10, 2009 | ROHS replacment parts ROHS replacment parts What documentation issues are you having? We use ROHS only. The conversion has been relatively painless. We simply request the ROHS parts from the vendor with little issues. You might as well convert all your parts to ROHS, you'll have to eventually.
Jun 10, 2009 | ROHS replacment parts ROHS replacment parts We generally purchase RoHS for all; leaving leaded-only assemblies as the exception.

Jun 9, 2009 | ROHS replacment parts ROHS replacment parts We have had issues for the last 4-5 years with converting our stock from leaded to ROHS components. We are a CM and have customers who want all ROHS and some that are still leaded. The problems we run into are when we intrduce a new ROHS component which is the same value as a leaded that we have in our system. often we have to deviate to use ROHS in place of leaded since leaded are becomeing harder to find. this casues a ton of documentation issues on our end. How does everyone else handle this? do you continue to purchase leaded parts or just ROHS for all (excpet BGA's)

Dec 4, 2008 | Lead contamination from pogo pins Is anyone aware of any white papers regarding the possibility of lead contamination on ROHS assemblies from using the same test fixture with the same test probes on both tin/lead and ROHS assemblies. We have customers switching over but we are still manufacturing both and wanted some reassurance that we would not exceed the 0.1% ROHS requirement. Thanks.

Aug 7, 2008 | coilcraft i ROHS inductors soldering problem coilcraft i ROHS inductors soldering problem We have experienced the same problem with Pd/AG and P/Ag terminations on precision resistive parts. The problem is dissolution of the termination metallisation into the bulk solder. This is exacerbated by the higher thermal profiles required for RoHS compliant soldering. I am assuming that you are using RoHS solder for your assembly? I understand that the Pd/Ag and Pt/Ag finishes are designed to be used with conductive adhesive bonding. We changed to a pure Tin finish native and saw no further issues. If you change to the SAC finish offered by your

Apr 2, 2007 | RoHS Compliant component usage in Non RoHS process RoHS Compliant component usage in Non RoHS process AFAIK TI has been totally ROHS compliant for at least 10 years. And you didn't hear complaints about them, OH wait a minute yes we did. You might have to go with a slightly hotter profile.
Apr 2, 2007 | RoHS Compliant component usage in Non RoHS process RoHS Compliant component usage in Non RoHS process I do this ALL the time, and it is pretty much transparent to the process. We have done shake, burn in, and functional tests with our products and we didn't have any issues what so ever. We have had a RoHS complient process for well over 18 months now and we haven't seen any field failures due to this either. So, it is pretty much a safe bet you'll be okay. We even have used Non-RoHS components in our RoHS process, but of course we can't state these boards are now RoHS compliant because of the Non-RoHS parts. You shouldn't have any issues
