Intel® Lead Free Desktop Boards

This Desktop Board is a European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (EU RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC) compliant product. EU RoHS restricts the use of six materials. One of the six restricted materials is lead.

This Desktop Board is lead free although certain discrete components used on the board contain a small amount of lead which is necessary for component performance and/or reliability. This Desktop Board is referred to as “Lead-free second level interconnect.” The board substrate and the solder connections from the board to the components (second-level connections) are all lead free.

China bans the same substances and has the same limits as EU RoHS; however it requires different product marking and controlled substance information. The required mark shows the Environmental Friendly Usage Period (EFUP). The EFUP is defined as the number of years for which controlled listed substances will not leak or chemicallydeteriorate while in the product.

RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC)

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive was passed into law by the European Union (E.U.). It affects manufacturers, sellers, distributors and recyclers of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chrome, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). From July 1, 2006 the use of these materials has been severely restricted in most electrical and electronic products sold in Europe.

In 2003, Kingston began the process of converting all of its products to be built in compliance with the RoHS Directive. Qualification of RoHS-compliant components supplied by our vendors and the implementation of new manufacturing processes related to this Directive was undertaken in 2004 and 2005.

All of Kingstons products and their packaging materials sold to Europe became fully RoHS-compliant on July 1, 2006. Occasionally, in order to meet special requests from customers we may supply certain legacy products for which RoHS-compliant components are unavailable from our suppliers for use in older equipment. For other regions, Kingston will ship the RoHS compliant memory and flash products upon request. A Declaration of RoHS Compliance can also be provided. If you have questions regarding the RoHS compliance of our products, please contact your distributor or reseller.
