- KIOXIA Corporation defines “RoHS Compatible” products as products that either ( i ) contain no more than a maximum concentration value of 0.1% by weight in Homogeneous Materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) and of 0.01% by weight in Homogeneous Materials for cadmium; or ( ii ) fall within any of the application exemptions set forth in the Annex to the RoHS Directive(*). This does not mean that Kioxia Corporation products labeled “RoHS COMPATIBLE” are entirely free of substances controlled by the RoHS Directive and does not constitute a warranty or guarantee that such products will comply with the specific laws and/or regulations adopted in any particular jurisdiction.
*RoHS Directive: KIOXIA Corporation defines “RoHS Directive” as the DIRECTIVE 2011/65/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
Definition of capacity: KIOXIA defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
