International Rectifier (IR), a supplier of power management electronics, has announced the initiation of the next phase in its product conversion program for lead-free finish packages. This process is planned to be completed by next year.

In support of the company's commitment to the environment, IR is working with industry alliances and its customers to develop a full range of lead-free solutions. The company began certain product conversions to lead-free packages early last year with the commencement of rigorous evaluation and qualification programs to achieve product performance to specification at the higher reflow temperatures associated with lead-free processing.

Many of the company's commercial products are now available in production quantities in pure tin or tin/copper finishes depending upon the product as well as market requirement. These products are designed to comply with JEDEC standards and a set of European EC directives governing the use of lead-free material for packages.
