Paying the Price for SnPb
Staying with SnPb? It's going to cost you. Forget that the latest technology is not even available SnPb (DDR2 and DDR3 SDRAM are only RoHS-compliant) and will require reprocessing (at $15 to $60 per part). Even parts that are still SnPb come with a 50% (512MB SDRAM) to 800% (2N222A NPN Transistors) price premium. Pb-free looking more enticing?
