Rohm Celebrates 50th Anniversary In Europe
Company is highlighting the milestones of its European activities with a special '50th Anniversary' website.
Since 1971, Rohm Semiconductor GmbH has established eight locations throughout Europe to support its customers locally with tailored semiconductor solutions. Now the company is highlighting the milestones of its European activities with a special '50th Anniversary' website.
Founded in 1958 in Kyoto, Japan, the Rohm group produces a wide range of solutions including integrated circuits for power management, SiC MOSFETs, diodes and modules, silicon power transistors and diodes, but also LEDs, resistors and many more electronic components.
Rohm Semiconductor Europe, with Headquarters in Willich near Düsseldorf, Germany, has offices in Germany, France, UK, Spain, Finland and Italy. Additionally, Rohm's production facility SiCrystal, located in Nuremberg, Germany, supplies the global markets with SiC wafers.
The company's European business activities aim to accelerate social contribution. “We focus on power and analogue solutions and contribute to our customers' needs for energy saving and downsizing of their products,” states Wolfram Harnack, president at Rohm Semiconductor Europe.
Rohm's European business both serves the needs of automotive and industrial application areas. “For example, car manufacturers strongly demand our SiC devices for their production of electric cars. In addition, we also see exciting projects in the industrial field and expect a major growth in Europe - particularly in the area of infrastructure for e-mobility and alternative energies,” Harnack continues.
Rohm's customer focus in Europe is reflected by the Power Lab, a modern laboratory for power electronics located at the company's EU Headquarters in Willich. It provides important local technical support at application level to Rohm's European customers. “With our (Application and Technical Solution Center (ATSC)) and Power Lab activities and expertise we enhance our local customer support to make their products even better - with state-of-the-art equipment and specialised measurements,” explains Aly Mashaly, director of Rohm's European Application and Technical Solution Centre.
