The Western Design Center, Inc. (WDC), a pioneer in the licensing of microprocessor Intellectual Property and supplier of 65xx technology, is committed to achieving full compliance with the European Union RoHS Initiative and the Japan Green Procurement Standard Survey Initiative (JGPSSI).

WDC is moving forward with our efforts toward full compliance by working with our manufacturer and packaging company, and plan to be in full compliance by the July 1, 2006 deadline.

WDC defines Pb–Free to be products that do not contain the following six substances, as defined in the RoHS initiative.

  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Hexavalent Chromium
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
