RoHS

The symbol indicates the product is EU RoHS Compliant. We certify that, to the best of our knowledge, these products meet the requirements of the European Union's Restriction on Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU and can therefore be called EU RoHS compliant. These products have lead-free terminations but use an exemption under the EU RoHS directive. This includes, for example, products with lead in high-melting-temperature solders used for die-attach or glass-diodes containing lead. Nexperia cannot warrant that our customer’s products, which incorporate Nexperia products, will in turn comply with the European Union's Directive 2011/65/EU.

The symbol indicates the product is EU/CN RoHS Compliant. We certifiy that, to the best of our knowledge, these products meet the requirements of the European Union's Restriction on Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU, and can therefore be called EU RoHS compliant. These products have lead-free terminations and do not make use of an exemption under the EU RoHS directive. These products also meet the requirements of the Chinese ACPEIP (Administration on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products), the "China RoHS". Nexperia cannot warrant that our customer’s products, which incorporate Nexperia products, will in turn comply with the European Union's Directive 2011/65/EU and/or with the Chinese ACPEIP.

Halogen-Free

A product is deemed halogen-free if it contains less than 900 ppm of chlorine and bromine compounds combined by weight of homogeneous material. The halogens fluorine, iodine, and astatine are not in the scope. In addition, content is also less than 900 ppm for antimony oxides by weight of homogeneous material.

Lead-Free

Products marked with a Lead (Pb) Free symbol meet the following definition, "Electrical and electronic assemblies and components in which the Lead (Pb) level in any of the homogeneous materials and the end product is less than 0.1% by weight."

RHF-indicator

RHF stands for RoHS Halogen Free. Nexperia introduced the RHF-2006 indicator to identify compliancy and it is used in the marking of commercial products and on their packing labels. RHF-2006 identification codes are as follows:

Non-RoHS compliant = Indicates all non-RoHS compliant products, whether or not they contain halogens. This includes products with lead in the outer terminals, such as QFP with traditional SnPb plating, and BGAs with SnPb balls.

Exempted = Indicates products containing exempted lead and containing halogens/antimony. For example, products with eutectic solder die-attach (HSOP/SIL-P) packages and glass-diodes containing lead.

Halogen/Antimony-Free = Indicates products containing exempted lead, but free of halogen and antimony.

Green = Indicates products that fully comply to the EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) without exemptions, but containing halogens.

Dark Green = Indicates products that fully comply to the EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) without exemptions and free of halogens.
