Cypress Semiconductor proactively manages Lead Free, RoHS, REACH and Halogen Free ("Green") programs to meet customer's requirements, as well as legislative requirements.
RoHS: Cypress Lead-Free semiconductor products and solutions meet the requirements of the Directive (EU) 2015/863 and the China RoHS directive. These products, designated with an "X" at the end of the ordering part number, are RoHS compliant, and do not contain the six restricted substances (Lead, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, Cadmium, PBB and PBDE) and 4 Phthalates substances (Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP, Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) beyond the allowable limits. Cypress solutions such as development kits have an RoHS compliant symbol on the label or insert.
Cypress standard (Leaded) products are RoHS 5 - they may contain traces of Pb in concentrations >1000ppm, but meet the allowable limits for the rest of the substances.
REACH: REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals and entered into force on 1 June 2007. Most Cypress Lead-Free products and solutions are compliant with the REACH regulation no. 1907/2006/EC of the European Parliament. which has a list of Very High Concern (SVHC) materials based on the Candidate of List of Substances available at https://echa.europa.eu/candidate-list-table. If a Cypress product contains an SVHC substance exceeding the 0.1% w/w, Cypress will disclose this information by part number upon customer request.

Conflict Minerals: Cypress supports the goals and objectives of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country (as defined in the Act). Conflict minerals include: columbite-tantalite (coltan) (i.e., tantalum), cassiterite (i.e.tin), gold, wolframite (i.e., tungsten) and their derivatives, and may be expanded to include any other mineral and their derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing the DRC conflict. See complete conflict mineral policy below.
