Bosch to produce halogen-free MEMS sensors

September 23, 2008: By the end of the year, Bosch Sensortec will manufacture its newest microelectro-mechanical (MEMS) pressure and acceleration sensors for mobile consumer goods halogen-free as a voluntary environmental protection measure. At that time, halogenated flame retardants, which can release dioxins when exposed to heat, will be replaced by safe materials, a switch that will have no effect on the reliability and service life of the MEMS sensors, the company said in a statement.

Bosch Sensortec is demonstrating its MEMS pressure and acceleration sensors for mobile consumer goods at CEATEC in Tokyo, a Japanese IT and Consumer Electronics Exhibition in October, 2008.

The new analog triaxial acceleration sensors BMA140 and BMA145 extend the product range of Bosch Sensortec of MEMS products.

With its new products, Bosch Sensortec specifically addresses the demands of the consumer electronics markets in regards to technological, economical, environmental and also logistical needs. All sensors are ready to install, calibrated, and can be manufactured, even in extremely large order quantities, at consistently high quality levels and within the prescribed time limit. The sensors fulfill all requirements of the European RoHS Directive.
