ROHM and SEMIKRON will kick-off collaboration sales of SiC power devices and modules, to contribute to the innovative evolution of the Japanese power electronics market.
ROHM has been a leading developer of advanced Silicon Carbide (SiC) products and SiC power devices in particular. It was the first company in the world to manufacture the SiC MOSFET in 2010 and offers SiC Schottky diodes as well. The wide range of ROHM SiC chips is suitable for an easy module integration.
SEMIKRON is one of the market leaders in power modules, covering a wide range of packages for all applications. It is well known for its cutting edge packaging technology that has set standards in power electronics. SEMIKRON offers SiC modules in six different packages covering 20A to 600A, which are widely used in the world-wide power electronics market, enabling energy savings in various applications.
Both companies together will synergize their joint knowledge (about Device, Control and Module technology) in the approach to the Japanese power electronics market, offering the perfect power solution. Both companies will collaborate to widen the SiC power module line-up and contribute to energy saving and miniaturization.
Founded in 1958, ROHM provides LSI and discrete semiconductors characterized by outstanding quality and reliability for a broad range of markets, including automotive, industrial and consumer market via its global development and sales network. In the analog power field, ROHM proposes the suitable solution for each application with power devices such as SiC, driver ICs to maximize their performance, and peripheral components such as transistors, diodes and resistors.
SEMIKRON is one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules and systems primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2 kW up to 10 MW). Our products are at the heart of modern energy efficient motor drives and industrial automation systems. Further application areas include power supplies, renewable energies (wind and solar power) and electric vehicles (private cars, vans, buses, lorries, forklift trucks, and more). SEMIKRON's innovative power electronic products enable our customers to develop smaller, more energy efficient power electronic systems. These systems in turn reduce the global energy demand.
