Finalization of halogen-free transfer Small-signal discrete and logic SMD plastic packages go “Dark Green”

As one of the first suppliers in the market, NXP has finalized the transfer to halogen-free packaging technology for its small-signal discrete and logic surface mount devices (SMD). From now on the majority of discretes and logic produced ban the use of halogens and antimony in the material, which is used as flame retardant in the mold compound. Additionally, Dark Green products are also fully RoHS compliant with the European Union directive 2002/95/EC. At the same time, the shift to halogen-free does not change any product parameters nor affect existing qualification, such as the automotive standard AEC-Q101 that some products are compliant with.

NXP Dark Green products do not contain the substances exceeding the limits as below:


Substances Limit
Antimony Oxides (Sb2O3, Sb2O5) < 900 ppm
Chlorinated Brominated Compounds Σ < 900 ppm

NXP customers benefit from this transfer to Dark Green as environmental safety aspects are getting more important for manufacturing processes and are acknowledged as a value of its own in the eyes of end customers.

Years ahead of upcoming legislation, NXP has already developed products in packages such as its ultra-small discrete leadless and Logic leadless DQFN and MicroPak that are exclusively assembled in Dark Green mold compound since inception. These activities reflect NXP's deep commitment to developing eco-friendly products and integrating environmental safety aspects in all manufacturing processes. “Dark Green” products can be recognized by the “Halogen Free” logo on the box label.
