Request for Switchover to RoHS Compliant Series in Our Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

We thank you for your continuous support for our Ceramic Capacitors. We would like to inform you that the Lead oxide used in TC..., TH..., TM... series are not compliant with RoHS Directive from January 1, 2013. This is due to RoHS Directive change in 2010 that the Lead oxide contained Ceramic Dielectric will not be exempted from RoHS Directive. However, it is not corresponded to SVHC of REACH Regulation.

Lead oxide is listed in the 8th revision of the SVHC Candidate List of the REACH Regulation. Please refer to the following URL for industry's view concerning SVHC.
