Lead-free arrays address environmental compliance ahead of future RoHS exemption changes

21-11-2019 | TT Electronics | Passives

TT Electronics now offers the latest series in its Green Thick-Film chip portfolio – the GBCN, a thick-film chip array that is entirely free of Pb (lead) and its compounds.

As environmental regulations grow more stringent, the new series offers peace of mind through exemption-free RoHS compliance. These resistors satisfy growing industry demand for pull-up, pull-down, level shift and termination functions in digital circuits and compact analogue circuits located in demanding equipment including process controllers, body control modules and medical devices.

“TT Electronics is committed to providing our customers future-proof designs that remove reliance on RoHS exemptions,” said Barry Peters, VP product management and engineering, TT Electronics. “GBCN and the rest of our Green portfolio enable OEMs to safeguard their system design investments and avoid time-consuming re-spins or, worse, extensive design alterations.”

A single-component, AEC-Q200 qualified solution, the series includes an array of four isolated resistor elements in a compact 1206 total footprint which produces a faster assembly.
