Substitution of currently widely used rhodium enables precious metals costs reduced by approximately 60% - Semiconductor packages Compared to electrolytic nickel-palladium-gold plating solution that is currently the most suitable material, precious metals costs can be reduced by approximately 20% EEJA plans a sales target of PALLADEX PC200 at 2 million yen per month.
Task force companies said they will require component suppliers to implement a set of recommendations for high-rel applications, including adoption of iNEMI-recognized whisker mitigation practices for tin lead-free plating processes, and to continue to provide non-whiskering finishes such as tin-lead or nickel-palladium-gold.
Developed to offer easy solutions to RoHS component transition challenges, RoHS "Gold" provides customers with the preferred finish for lead-frame based products, Nickel-Palladium-Gold (NiPdAu), which means no "tin whiskering" worries, as well as unique part numbers for easy Bill-of-Materials (BOM) management and easy on-line access to key material content information.
Demand for its products using nickel-palladium-gold frame technology is expected to increase as customers continue to qualify its lead-free components.
Earlier this year, Cypress announced that it will offer lead-free packages using nickel-palladium-gold leadframe packaging for all new integrated circuit (IC) products by the end of the third quarter 2004, and that it plans to meet the balance of customer "green" requirements in 2005.
This initiative will be a major milestone in the company's efforts to make its product packaging more environmentally friendly by using nickel-palladium-gold frame technology -- an innovative technology that has been accepted by the market -- to shift lead-based products to lead-free.
