Are all Renesas Electronics products being replaced with lead-free products?


In principle, we are going to replace all products containing lead with lead-free products, but it won't be possible to replace them all.
For example, since automotive and communications devices are not subject to the (European) RoHS Directive, some of these semiconductor devices have not been replaced yet, in order to avoid interrupting our customers' application set production.
Basically, we will continue producing conventional leaded products in parallel with lead-free product production.

All newly developed products, however, will be lead free.
Moreover, since October 2006, all optical and RF/microwave devices have been manufactured as lead-free devices.
For more information on lead-free devices, please see our lead-free product list.
