Cypress Expert to Discuss Lead-Free Deadlines at IPC/JEDEC Conference

Thursday, August 19, 2004

2:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Grand Hyatt Singapore

SAN JOSE, Calif., August 11, 2004 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp (NYSE: CY) today announced that its Manufacturing Director John Quist will present a paper entitled "Lead-Free Deadlines and Their Effect on Current Product Life Cycles" at the IPC/JEDC 6th International Conference on Lead-Free Electronic Assemblies and Components at 2:00 p.m. on August 19, 2004, at the Grand Hyatt Singapore. 

Companies must manage current product life cycles in order to meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) deadline fast approaching. Quist's presentation will discuss altering the variables in product life cycles-including how to quickly transition to lead-free processes-in order to meet RoHS and customer deadlines.

Quist has 20 years of semiconductor manufacturing experience and is a recognized lead-free and manufacturing expert. Most recently, he has spent the last two years working with Cypress customers and its factory preparing for the conversion to lead-free manufacturing.

This year, the IPC/JEDEC Conference will cover lead-free issues on topics such as cost-effective design on high-density electronic assemblies, designing reliable packaging, implementation and production and manufacturability and reliability. For more information on this conference, visit
