THAT Corp. Transitions to Matte Tin Plating
Oct 14, 2014 11:45 AM
MILFORD, MASS.� THAT Corporation has announced plans to gradually change the lead finish on all integrated circuit products from Nickel-Palladium-Gold plating to matte Tin.
The company says that it expects the process will take several years and will continue until its products are converted, and our stock of Ni-Pd-Au parts is exhausted, so customers may receive products with either plating.
Additionally, effective with orders placed from the beginning of 2015, THAT Corporation will discontinue the suffixes which indicate specific lead finishes (-I representing Tin-Bismuth, -T representing Tin, and -U representing Ni-Pd-Au). After the start of 2015, all parts may be ordered using one �universal� suffix, �-U,� regardless of finish. While the finish may vary, all ICs with a -U finish comply with current RoHS requirements.
