MIL-PRF-38534, Revision L Compliance Statement
Revision L of MIL-PRF-38534 introduced major changes to the element evaluation requirements for components used in compliant hybrid microcircuit products. VPT has made the necessary changes and we can offer products that are fully compliant with Class K of MIL-PRF-38534, revision L. However, due to the cost and lead time impacts associated with revision L, VPT is also offering a new screening level that meets the revision K and previous revisions of MIL-PRF-38534 for Class K compliant products. Please find our official statement here.
VPT RoHS and Pure Tin Statement
VPT does not use lead bearing solders and solderable finishes externally on our products except if the customer specifically requests solder dipped leads.
VPT Statement regarding the Berry Amendment Specialty Metals Requirement
While VPT products contain minor amounts of non-domestic specialty metals in standard Integrated Circuits utilized in our designs, VPT products are exempt from the Specialty Metals Requirements compliance per the Alt. I deviation clause which exempts “Commercially Available Electronic Components With De Minimis Specialty Metal Content”.
REACH and SVHC
VPT has completed a thorough review of all components and materials used in the construction of hybrid products. VPT has received REACH Certificates of Conformance from all component and material manufacturers willing and able to provide such documentation. Investigation into the components and materials has yielded no traces of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC’s) listed in Article 57 of European Community Regulation 1907/2006, other than lead (Pb) [CAS # 7439-92-1; EC #231-100-4] in concentrations above 0.1%, for reasons stated on page 16 regarding the presence of lead in VPT products. For the most up-to-date REACH compliance statement, please contact VPT. VPT is unaware of any other potential source for the introduction of SVHC’s into VPT products from the manufacturing or packaging processes utilized, or from the packaging materials themselves. VPT does not specifically analyze our products for the presence of these substances; therefore cannot guarantee the level of these substances to any specific threshold or value. This information is provided in good faith and believed to be accurate based on the current composition and information provided by our vendors. No warranty is expressed or implied.
