Freescale joins E3 Lead-free initiative, makes it E4

In July 2001, Philips, STMicroelectronics and Infineon Technologies teamed up to develop standards for lead-free products. The definition includes factors such as solderability, reliability of alternative materials and characterization of the moisture sensitivity level. Lead-free, as defined by the companies, is content less than 1000 parts per million lead by weight.

(June 7, 2004) San Jose, Calif.&#8212SEMI and IEEE recently agreed to support each other’s efforts to create nanotechnology and MEMS standards. The organizations will appoint liaisons, define a regular exchange of information and schedule periodic joint meetings to present updates and disseminate standards information on nanotechnology and MEMS.
