Addendum 1: Product discontinued: components with tin/lead plating

Lead-Free Terminations & RoHS Compliance

Addendum 1: Product discontinued: components with tin/lead plating.

December 10, 2010

Valued Customers,

Since taking the first steps to comply with the RoHS Directive, Fair-Rite Products has maintained that it would continue to supply products with tin/lead termination as long as possible.

We have recently re-evaluated our position with regards to our “multi-layer chip” devices with tin/lead plating. This is due to a contamination problem, which continues to occur in the plating tanks when switching between the dominantly higher volume line of lead-free plated cores, and the low volume tin/lead plated products.

There is not a sufficient volume to justify separate equipment, and so effectively immediately, Fair-Rite Products will discontinue sales of multi-layer chip products with tin/lead termination. This decision affects the 25-product class Chip Beads and the 22- product class Chip Inductor part numbers ending with an L suffix.

We will continue filling existing orders until our current inventory of parts with tin/lead finish is depleted. At that point, we will regrettably be unable to take new orders for these parts.

As of December 2009, Fair-Rite has decided to no longer support tin/lead plating for the 27 and 29 product families (Bead-on-Leads, SM Beads, PC Beads and Wound Beads).

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this turn of events may cause.
