Product Announcement from Advanced Power Electronics Corp. USA
As part of its commitment to responsible manufacturing and a clean environment, Advanced Power Electronics Corporation continues to expand the number of products it offers that are produced with a halogen-free (HF) molding compound. All of its products have been Pb-free and RoHS-compliant for several years and many products that were newly introduced in 2008 were halogen free also.
The halogen-free products from Advanced Power Electronics Corp are compliant with the requirements of IEC61249-2-21, JPCA-ES01 2003, and IPC1401. Maximum halogen levels are well below the required limits of <900pmm chlorine (Cl), <900ppm bromine (Br), and <1500ppm total halogens.
APEC is continuing to support its existing products in non-HF molding compound, but these are also now available with HF molding compound as a requested option, identified by HF in the part number. Samples and appropriate documentation are available where re-qualification is necessary.
