Solectron soon totally RoHS compliant
According to Solectron, 85% of its production capacity worldwide has reached RoHS compliance.
According to Purchasing.com Solectron says each of its sites: • Validated the capability of its lead-free soldering and rework capabilities by completing Solectron lead-free/ROHS designed surface mount technology (SMT) and plated through hole (PTH) test vehicle builds and associated laboratory mechanical and failure analysis tests. • Demonstrated its knowledge and ability to manage lead-free/RoHS, end-to-end, through warehouse and logistics management processes. • Established a competency level based on training and a structured self-assessment program. • Demonstrated its competency through a Solectron corporate on-site audit, which evaluated each sites' preparations, controls, technical understanding and compliance readiness.
