Melbourne, Fla. AuthenTec, Inc. says its the first company in the biometrics industry to offer lead-free solutions for its complete line of fingerprint sensors. The company's TruePrint fingerprint sensors meet current Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC), Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), and European Commission Directive on Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) standards.
AuthenTec has replaced the lead-based solder plating used in its lead frame products with a nickel-palladium-gold alternative, while also moving to a lead-free solder ball composition for its laminate array packages, through advances in semiconductor packaging technology. All lead-free AuthenTec products meet the 260°C reflow temperature requirement for lead-free processing.
