Although the focus here is usually on product innovations and innovative developments, in this case it’s the company itself, ROHM Semiconductor, that is celebrating its premiere at this year's HANNOVER MESSE. This global company - founded in Kyoto, Japan, in 1958 - is exhibiting for the first time in Hannover. While ROHM originally focused exclusively on producing resistors (its name deriving from 'R' for resistor and 'ohm', the electrical unit of measurement), over time its product range has gradually been expanded with items such as semiconductors, ICs, LEDs, diodes, LC displays and thermal print heads. In its HANNOVER MESSE debut, ROHM is exhibiting under the banner "Endless possibilities". The company will be showcasing key modules designed to help technological innovation in Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
As an industry leader, ROHM offers solutions throughout the world in SiC (silicon carbide) in particular - a technology that is ideal for even the most demanding environments. The ROHM stand will also feature the replica of the Venturi Formula E car piloted, among others, by Nick Heidfeld, which is competing in the FIA Formula E series for single-seater race cars with a fully electric power train. The technical partnership with the racing team, which is being officially unveiled in Hannover, includes the future fitting-out of the Venturi VM200-FE-01 with SiC technology manufactured by ROHM. The performance of the power train in the Venturi car will be boosted significantly by the improved thermal efficiency and optimized switching speeds of the SiC components.
