Torex and RoHS Compliance

All Torex IC's are 100% compliant with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) standards. All of the company's Integrated Circuits meet the RoHS proposed thresholds for cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphpenyl ethers (PBDEs).

In order to meet the RoHS standard, each package component (mold compound, lead frame, etc.) must be within the RoHS thresholds shown below:

RoHS Threshold (ppm) RoHS Threshold (% of wt.)

Lead                                                                  1000ppm    0.1%
Mercury                                                            1000ppm    0.1%
Cadmium                                                          100ppm    0.01%
Hexavalent Chromium                                   1000ppm    0.1%
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)                 1000ppm   0.1%
Polybrominated Biphenyl Ethers (PBDE)     1000ppm    0.1%
* Lead is allowed up to 4% as an alloying agent in copper-based alloys such as leadframes.

Certificate of EU RoHS Compliance

Peak Reflow & Moisture Sensitivity Level

The peak reflow soldering temperature of the lead-free part is 10°C higher than standard reflow peak temperature. In order to guarantee reliable assembly, Torex has followed the strict guidelines of the IPC/JEDEC specification J-STD-020C. The moisture sensitivity level of all Torex ICs is MSL1.
