Melexis Annual Report 2013

GreenGreen / Halogen Free

The lead free movement is linked with the so called « green » packaging issue, of which it is an integral part. In green packaging, the endeavour is to remove all toxic substances from the package, and this includes notably the bromine-antimony complexes now universally applied as additives to the mold compound, in order to guarantee the required fire retardancy.

Melexis defines “Green” products as those which are:

  • RoHS compliant
  • AND are halogen free according to IEC61249-2-21 definition
    • 900ppm maximum Bromine
    • 900ppm maximum Chlorine
    • 1500ppm maximum total Halogen (Br+Cl)
  • AND contains less than 900ppm Antimony trioxide (Sb2O3)

Any material used in the assembly process of semiconductor packages is considered to follow the limits as mentioned in the table below for “Pb-free”, “RoHS” and “Green packages”.
