Practical difference between N- and G package material for LNK302D

Posted by: BSA on Thu, 08/26/2021


What is the difference between N- and G package material. The description is "RoHS Compliant and Halogen Free" for both. I know that in older revisions of the datasheet, the N material was described as "Pure Matte Tin (RoHS Compliant)". Is there no difference anymore? If there is a difference, what practical implications are there in terms of performance, solderability, etc?

Thanks in advance!

There is no practical difference between N and G lead finish material. The type to choose would only matter if you are going to get a compliance certificate.
