CHICAGO — Newark InOne, a subsidiary of global distributor Premier Farnell plc and a small-quantity distributor of electronic components and test equipment in North America, now offers a new, 580-page catalog devoted strictly to electronic products that are RoHS-compliant. The front section of the catalog includes a detailed guide to help engineers in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to comply with RoHS, which takes effect July 1, 2006.
The 40,000 in-stock products in the catalog are divided into six sections: semiconductors, passive components, interconnect/wire and cable, electromechanical/power/ circuit protection, optoelectronics, and soldering. It represents such manufacturers as Texas Instruments, On Semi, Maxim/Dallas, IR, National, Intersil, AMD, Fairchild, Freescale, Avago, Kester, Littelfuse, Honeywell, Tyco, Molex, and Amphenol.
Newark InOne has issued new part numbers for all its compliant stock, even if the manufacturers have not done so, ensuring that compliant and non-compliant parts are easily identifiable and properly segregated within its warehouse and their customers' stockrooms.
Distribution of the RoHS catalog will begin in March 2006, but can be ordered now at www.newarkinone.com/catalog. There is no charge for the catalog, and requests will be honored while supplies last.
