* Additional information

Most of Rohm’s products, such as power management devices and electric motor drivers, help its clients to substantially reduce the power consumption of their own end products by improving their energy efficiency. Examples are speed controllers for electric motors, AC/DC converters used in electric vehicles, renewable energy power plants, battery chargers, and many other devices.

Rohm is well-known for its capabilities to reduce the size of its products through miniaturization. By making products smaller and smaller the power consumption also decreases. Another major benefit is the reduction of the use of materials which saves scarce resources.
