Item: RoHS

Description:

RoHS is the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. This EU legislation says that electronic devices may not contain lead or certain other hazardous substances. For circuit boards, RoHS compliance is controlled by two components: The base material and the surface.

Today all our printed circuit boards that have surface chemical gold or HAL lead-free can be used for a RoHS design. Learn about Multi-CB's RoHS policy.
