ROHM acquiring Panasonic Semiconductor’s diode and transistor business

ROHM of Kyoto, Japan is acquiring part of the diode and transistor business of Kyoto-based Panasonic Semiconductor Solutions Co Ltd, a group company of Panasonic Corp of Osaka, Japan that was founded in 2014. The transfer is scheduled for October.

Established in 1958, ROHM’s Semiconductor business has been developing, producing and selling semiconductor devices since the 1960s as a core business of the ROHM Group and claims to have the largest shares of the global markets for small-signal transistors and diodes. Looking ahead, given the strong prospects of continuous growth in the automotive electronics, industrial equipment and other markets, ROHM will be expanding its business in bipolar transistors, circuit-protective Zener diodes, TVS diodes and other products. As a part of that, ROHM is investing in a wide range of business resources in order to strengthen product lineups, further enhance product quality and ensure stable supplies. By acquiring the Panasonic business, ROHM aims to further expand its market share.

To ensure a smooth transition and stable supply to customers, ROHM will outsource production to Panasonic and maintain the same supply structure as before until the transfer is complete.

Going forward, both companies will be jointly preparing for the transfer of business, including obtaining all necessary approvals and permits.
