Since setting up in Europe in 1971, Rohm Demiconductor has established eight locations with a focus on power and analog semiconductors.
The company produces a wide range of devices 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. Being a vertically integrated semiconductor manufacturer, Rohm says it is largely independent of suppliers and can respond more flexibly to market changes.
The headquarters in Willich near Düsseldorf, Germany, is supported by eight offices in six countries today: Germany, France, UK, Spain, Finland and Italy. Rohm’s production facility SiCrystal, located in Nuremberg, Germany, supplies the global markets with silicon carbide wafers.
“Over the past 50 years, Rohm has significantly grown on a European scale and created new divisions – such as the Application and Technical Solution Centre (ATSC) at our European Headquarters in Willich, Germany. By continuing these positive developments, I would like to be a contact partner at eye level for our customers – together with our competent EU team. Moreover, we aim to continue to expand the core automotive and industrial business areas and focus on both power semiconductors and analog ICs,” said Wolfram Harnack, President at ROHM Semiconductor Europe.
“For example, car manufacturers strongly demand our silicon carbide 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,” he said.
Rohm has set up a Power Lab at the EU Headquarters in Willich. It provides important local technical support at application level to ROHM’s European customers.
“With our 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 specialized measurements,” said Aly Mashaly, Director of the ATSC.
