Enventure Technology Services, a leading product design services and component obsolescence management provider to global corporations, has today won an RoHS Compliance and Tin Whisker Analysis order from a leading global supplier of systems to the Aerospace and Defense industry.
The RoHS directive places restrictions on Electrical and Electronic Equipment Manufacturers, in order to prevent companies from placing electrical and electronic equipment with high levels of hazardous substances in the market. Enventure’s senior RoHS compliance consultants have extensive expertise in this area and will dedicate time to ensure that they provide a cost-effective solution for the Client, whilst enabling them to collate necessary compliance information to exhibit due diligence.
In addition to RoHS compliance services, Enventure is also tasked with completing a ‘tin whisker’ analysis for the Client. When companies move from Lead based solders to Tin based solders, development of “Tin Whiskers” can affect the reliability of the product. Using tools such as Tin Whisker analysis algorithms, Enventure will assess the parts reliability towards Tin Whiskers, and suggest the ways to mitigate the risk or replace the component with more reliable parts.
“Component lifecycle management is an important task in the aerospace industry, which ensures that components are available during the life cycle of the end product to ensure new production and service capability,” commented a spokesperson for Enventure. “However, it’s critical that the life cycle information of components is regularly reviewed and the management program covers all kind of components including electronics, mechanical and electromechanical items. These can be hard to achieve as several manufacturers don’t have a well-managed product change notice delivery mechanism today. Enventure’s life cycle management services have the unique capability to cover all kind of parts in the BoM for a comprehensive risk management.
Managing obsolescence, ROHS/WEEE and Tin Whisker information is very essential for aerospace companies. Coverage and accuracy is the most important criteria of selecting long term service partner in this area. This is why we have been brought on board to provide comprehensive RoHS Compliance, Tin Whisker Analysis, Supplier Data Management and Lifecycle Analysis services to this Fortune 500 Client and ensure that they are fully compliant in this respect.”
