As the RoHS exemption 15 is expiring soon and new exemption 15a will be effective after 02/29/2020. I have a list of parts (2.7k) that belongs to ARRIA V (GX, GT GZ, ST SX) series.
If we see the process technology for this ARRIA V series, it is built on TSMC's 28nm process technology.
Now as per the new definition of 15a
- a semiconductor technology node of 90 nm or larger;
But, here technology is less than 90 nm, So, will these parts become RoHS non-compliant after 29th Feb 2020?
Please share your expertise.
Specific to ADV2002, this is ONLY a label content change. The ADV2002 is NOT a notification for ROHS compliance status or change in status.
Background of why we are removing the words "ROHS compliant"
- There are certain products (<300mm2 die, technology newer than 90nm) that will not meet Ex15a. Those are due to expire by end of Feb 2020.
- To prevent misrepresentation, we are removing the printing of "Rohs compliant" to accommodate products that by February will fall into two groups: ROHS compliant products and non-ROHS compliant (formerly ROHS compliant) products.
- Also, the barcode label is not the formal declaration of ROHS compliant, and is not required by the EU ROHS Directive.

Hope this clarify. Do inform me if you need further information.
