Pyramid Semiconductor understands compliance to Environment, Health & Safety regulations and implements it in every relevant area of the manufacturing process.

We provide solutions for Environmentally Preferred Products (EPP) with Lead Free and RoHS compliance and REACH requirements in semiconductor ICs Manufacturing.

Our Standard Products and Environmentally Preferred Products (EPP) are offered in a variety of different plastic and hermetic ceramic packages with the following material contents:

For our Standard Products, the material composition is approximately:

Ceramic products solder dip composition:

  • ~ 63% Tin (Sn)
  • ~ 37% Lead (Pb)

Plastic products tin/lead finish composition:

  • ~ 85% Tin (Sn)
  • ~ 15% Lead (Pb)

For our Environmentally Preferred Products (EPP) in compliance with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive:

Environmentally Preferred Products are RoHS-6 compliant, and have less than the following limits for these restricted substances:

Substance Actual Allowed
Cadmium (Cd) ≤ 2.0 ppm < 0.01%
Mercury (Hg) ≤ 5.0 ppm 0.1%
Hexavalent Chromium (Hex-Cr) ≤ 2.0 ppm < 0.1%
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) ≤ 5.0 ppm 0.1%
Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) ≤ 5.0 ppm 0.1%
Lead (Pb) ≤ 5.0 ppm 0.1%

RoHS-6 devices are available only in plastic. The composition of the leads on these devices is Matte Tin (Sn) 100%.

Plastic devices are available in RoHS-5 and RoHS-6 versions.

Ceramic devices are not available in Lead free.

RoHS-6 Compliant Devices have an "LF" suffix added to the standard part number:

  • P4C1256-25JC for Standard RoHS-5 Product
  • P4C1256-25JCLF for Lead-free RoHS-6 Product
