Quality-driven innovation is at the heart of everything we do at AMD. It’s a commitment that unites employees, suppliers, and stakeholders in a common mission to put customers first: listening, understanding, executing to address their business requirements and delivering products with a “zero-defect” target.
Figure 1. AMD quality represented by customer scorecard (rating 0 to 10) and defect PPM. These are direct customer feedback scores in which 20% are perfect 10s.
AMD has built these standards into the company's business fabric to benefit all customers regardless of market.
AMD continues to adopt new emerging standards to improve its management systems and challenge industry bests.
AMD Global approach to Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) has been developed on a partnering platform that encourages unity, communication and teamwork throughout all our regional sites and departments within AMD.
We use the global environmental management standard ISO14001 and occupational health and safety standard ISO45001 as the foundation of our EHS management system. Our operating regions communicate with each other to share standards, programs, and practices to ensure global EHS requirements are implemented and maintained in order to:
We monitor resource and regulatory trends and are committed to setting focused targets for our key resources and emissions. Our global environmental programs and practices have been developed to identify, manage and control activities that have an environmental impact. We focus on reducing energy consumption where possible, using renewable resources, reducing the solid and chemical waste of our operations, avoiding and preventing pollutions, and minimizing our overall environmental impact in the communities around us.
AMD is committed to ensuring the highest levels of compliance across the many standards that govern different industry management systems.
AMD offers lead free (Pb-Free) components that comply with the European Union’s RoHS directive (2015/863). RoHS compliant devices are specified by adding the character “G” to the package designator portion of the part number. Under current directive, AMD flip-chip packages are exempt from the lead-free requirement under Exemption 15 (Lead in solders to complete a viable electrical connection between semiconductor die and carrier within integrated circuit flip chip packages). Flip-chip packages that are fully 6 of 6 RoHS compliant without exemption 15 are specified by adding the character “V” to the package designator portion of the part number.
Material declaration data sheets and IPC 1752 forms are posted under Packaging Specifications. Instructions on how to locate these files are in AR# 21227.
AMD offers our standard devices which contain lead but comply with the RoHS Directive limits for mercury, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, PBB and PBDE.
Halogen Free and Green package is per IEC61249-2-21
