Important Information About Discontinuation of BeO Products at IPP

Categories // Latest News RF

A change in law means discontinuation of certain items from Innovative Power Products (IPP).

Recently, Innovative Power Products (IPP) received a notification from Materion, one of the largest suppliers for Beryllium and Beryllium compounds in America, stating that OSHA has amended the law (29 CFR 1910.1024) that applies to the handling and processing of Beryllium which took effect December 12, 2018.

The amendment requires significant changes to the way IPP handles Beryllium. Sadly, this change has forced IPP to stop producing products containing Beryllium. This affects IPP Resistors, Terminations and Attenuators which are produced using Beryllium Oxide (BeO) ceramics.

IPP is diligently working on offering similar products manufactured on Aluminum Nitride ceramic substrates for replacements in the near future.
