Various medical imaging display controller boards now RoHS compliant
Montreal, Canada, April 4, 2006 —Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today announced that it has begun shipping several medical imaging display controller boards that are RoHS-compliant solutions.
"Our customers will be pleased to know that they will soon begin receiving and can now start ordering several of our Matrox medical imaging display controller boards which have passed and comply with the RoHS directive," says George Rigas, business development manger, medical imaging. "Our RoHS-compliant display controller boards are identical in nature and functionality as all of our existing medical imaging solutions which we have been shipping for the past several years, only they are now also available in RoHS-compliant versions. We adapted our manufacturing process and used materials that comply with the RoHS directive, but maintaining the same form, fit and functionality that customers have been using for years. These RoHS boards will provide our customers with the peace of mind of using an environmentally sound product."
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 restrict placement on the EU market of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, and PBDE as of July 1st, 2006.
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. The RoHS compliant products provide the same level of quality, compatibility and reliability customers have come to expect from Matrox.For more information on the RoHS Directive and Matrox products, please visit our website at: www.matrox.com/environment/RoHS.
