Inphi's High-Speed Precision Electronic Components Turn Green

6/8/2005 - Inphi® Corporation announced that through its Green Product Strategy, adopted in early 2002, its entire line of high-speed precision electronic components for optical communications, test and instrumentation, microwave, and computing applications meets or exceeds the most comprehensive worldwide environmental safe-product rules. Anticipating customer needs and working proactively to meet regulatory requirements, Inphi's products are available in Green Packages, well-ahead of European Union's Restrictions of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic equipment (RoHS) compliance deadlines.

"We've established procedures so that every part is in alignment with the most stringent of the global standards and regulations," said Paul Washkewicz, Inphi Corporation's vice president, marketing and sales. "This is a significant industry change, affecting nearly 100% of the electronics used in the market. By aggressively pursuing a Green Product Strategy, Inphi is easing this transition for its customers and for all manufacturers facing this design and engineering challenge. We will for the foreseeable future, continue to supply our existing products to those customers who still need the time to convert their manufacturing lines over those meeting RoHS standards."

Across the globe, countries are addressing growing environmental concerns by adopting legislation to restrict or eliminate materials that can be harmful to the environment. The RoHS regulations mandate that lead and other hazardous substances be banned in electrical and electronic equipment sold there beginning July 2006. North America agreed in November on a roadmap to adopt lead-free soldering by the end of 2005. The Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry has been phasing in programs to recycle and label lead-bearing products since 2001.
