Lead-Free Manufacturing

Providing Solutions to a Complex Challenge

JEDEC remains committed to helping the electronics industry define standardized solutions to meet the technological challenges posed by the migration to lead-free materials.

Spurred by a 2003 European Union directive known as RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), the industry is undergoing one of the most significant shifts in manufacturing processes to occur in the last 50 years. The transition to the use of lead-free materials has redefined reliability concerns, and created a need for solutions to challenges involving moisture sensitivity, solderability and tin whisker mitigation practices, process controls and verification testing.

JEDEC collaborated with diverse organizations, including IPC, iNEMI and ECA to ensure needed documents were created as swiftly as possible to meet industry demand.
