Fujitsu Components Asia Pte Ltd

Singapore, April 29, 2003

To address world-wide environmental concerns, Fujitsu Components Asia, Limited today announced that it will switch to lead-free relays and begin shipments in June 2003. The company’s other product lines (connectors, resistive touch panels, thermal printers, KVM switches, and keyboards) will be converted to lead-free materials by March 2004.

Fujitsu’s new lead-free relay line will consist of electromechanical and solid-state relays for power and telecom/signal applications. They will be manufactured with a tin, gold and copper solder that is able to withstand maximum process temperatures of 260oC. The new devices are drop-in replacements for the company’s existing relays.

Under Fujitsu’s test conditions, the lead free relays provide up to 250oC (reflow) and 260oC (flow) solder heat resistance. In addition, solderability and connection reliability of the new relays using both lead solder and lead-free solder has been verified.

According to the Fujitsu, pricing for the lead-free relays may be up to 5% over the cost of previous lead relays, depending on quantity.
