Yes. Directive 2011/65/EU (replacing the Directive 2002/95/EC), Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS), does impact Micron's semiconductor products. The purpose of this directive is to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and protect human health and the environment. Micron’s products have always been 5/6 RoHS compliant, meaning they contain Pb solder, but otherwise comply with RoHS regulations (they meet five of six stipulations). Micron’s Pb-free products are completely RoHS compliant.
Micron's RoHS compliant module level products do contain electronic parts that may use Pb for applications exempt from Directive 2011/65/EU (see Article 4, Annex 3). Please contact your sales/marketing representative for more information.
The European Commission FAQ sheet distributed under the Directorate-General Environment may serve as a formal (but not legally binding) point of reference.
Micron’s Pb-free component, die, and wafer-level products do not contain any of the six substances restricted by the China RoHS. Micron’s modules may contain Pb in both not exempted and exempted EU RoHS applications (where not reliable Pb-free alternatives are available in the market).
Micron’s products are not sold directly to consumers. The EPUP and other marking and labeling requirements apply only to the products sold directly on the consumer market. For more information contact your sales/marketing representative.
*These substances are not intentionally added by Micron during the manufacturing process but can be present in trace amounts in the raw materials used to manufacture the finished products.
Micron is fully aware of product requirements coming from Regulation 2006/1907/EC, Registration, Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. Micron constantly monitors new additions to the Candidate List and timely verifies if any Substance of Very High Concern is used in the manufacturing processes and the potential impact on the final products. Micron is committed to provide our customers with information about substances in its products as required.
For any documentation need, please contact your sales representative.
Yes, along with our Pb-free product line, Micron also supports RoHS 5/6 products. We recognize that certain applications are exempt from the RoHS directive.
Micron’s full line of RoHS compliant memory products can be found in the part list tables for each product type. To perform a quick compliance check on a single part number, use the "Part Number Search" tool. For information on green products, please contact your local Micron sales representative.
You can find a part-specific RoHS Certificate of Compliance by navigating to the part detail page or using the main products family navigation.
- For solder balls, Micron is replacing tin-lead alloys (Sn36Pb2Ag or Sn37Pb ) with a tin (Sn), silver (Ag), and copper (Cu) alloys (e.g., SAC105, SAC305, SAC405, LF35).
- For solder paste on modules, Micron is replacing Sn37Pb with Sn3.8Ag0.7Cu.
- For leaded TSOP, Micron is replacing 90Sn10Pb with matte Sn plating.
These substitutions ensure Micron’s Pb-free parts are RoHS-compliant. Parts are certified for a surface mount temperature of 260°C.
