Green Commitment

As a responsible corporate citizen, AOS is fully committed to protecting the environment. And supplying Green products that are environmentally safe.

Starting in August 2004, the company began converting its power products to RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliance and achieved full RoHS conversion in July 2005. Consequently, our RoHS compliant products do not exceed the hazardous material levels given in Table 1 below as per the European Directive RoHS and SS0259 specifications:

Table 1
  • Cadmium
    < 100 ppm
  • Hg
    < 1000 ppm
  • Lead (Pb)*
    < 1000 ppm
  • Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+)
    < 1000 ppm
  • Poly Brominated Biphenyls (PBB)
    < 1000 ppm
  • Poly Brominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)
    < 1000 ppm

* Maximum Pb limit does not apply to applications for which exemptions have been granted by the RoHS Directive, such as high temperature solder die attach for certain products.

Our efforts extend beyond the RoHS Directive. We have also converted our RoHS compliant products to Green. We define Green as products that are RoHS compliant and use flame retardant agents in the molding compound that do not exceed the hazardous material levels given in Table 2:

Table 2
  • Bromine
    < 900 ppm
  • Chlorine
    < 900 ppm
  • Total Bromine and Chlorine
    1500 ppm max
  • Antimony
    < 900 ppm
