RoHS Compliant Components
and control of different types of components is critical to
assure that a given product is truly RoHS-compliant. Currently,
there is no universal agreement within the supply chain to
designate unique part numbers for RoHS compliant components
vs. non-RoHS compliant items. Many component manufacturers
choose to identify compliant parts by lot code or date code
instead of unique part numbers.
no industry-wide supply chain identification standard exists
for RoHS compliance, to achieve this goal, Dallas has instituted
procedures to distinguish between RoHS-compliant and non-compliant
components. This ensures that each compliant OEM product contains
only compliant components and is assembled with lead-free
Ensures RoHS Compliance with the Following Steps:
• BOM “scrubbing” to determine current compliance
of each component.
• Research and specification of alternate components.
• Redesign of the product to adapt to new components.
• Implementing new assembly processes.
• Prototyping of redesigned assemblies.
• Reliability testing of new, compliant designs.
is nearly inevitable that some amount of non-compliant material
will be stranded as excess and obsolete inventory because
of this transition. Dallas works closely with OEMs to implement
