The European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive 2002/95/EC places restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and halide-containing compounds PBB (polybrominated biphenyl) and PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ether). As a commitment to our international customers, CyberOptics Semiconductor has converted all of its Imagenation frame grabbers to comply with that directive.
The Imagenation CX100 frame grabber is an exception. It was discontinued on December 31, 2005. Orders will be shipped through June 30, 2006, but the CX100 will NOT be RoHS compliant.
Part numbers and ordering information will not change. RoHS compliant frame grabbers are designated as such by a sticker or mark on the circuit board near the serial number.
Achieving RoHS compliance required changing to components with RoHS compliant lead finish (lead-free) and assembling with a RoHS compliant solder process. No changes were made to any circuits or layouts. There is no change in performance.
