Matrox Graphics Inc. has made the transition with its Matrox MED Series, RAD Series, TheatreVUE Series and AuroraVX Series to shipping RoHS-compliant boards.
The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union adopted a Directive on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment, known as the RoHS Directive. The RoHS Directive will restricted placement on the EU market of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, and PBDE as of July 1st.
Matrox RoHS-compliant medical display controller boards are form, fit and function equivalent to their non-RoHS-compliant counterparts, and are drop-in compatible. Existing Matrox software, drivers and graphic BIOS operate transparently with the RoHS-compliant versions.
