ROHM Semiconductor intensifies dialog with customers during its SiC & power forum in Düsseldorf

ROHM SiC Forum 2017

Willich-Münchheide, 26. October 2017 - Building the future of power electronics: Following its successful launch in 2015, the semiconductor specialist ROHM has established its SiC & power forum as a lively platform for professional exchange about products and market developments.

Round about 90 customers and business partners traveled to Düsseldorf on 24th and 25th of October for a two-day program, to inform themselves about the trends and pitfalls of development, attend lectures and to discuss application scenarios and solutions in personal discussions.

The response to the event, which took place at the Lindner Congress Hotel in Düsseldorf, was very positive: "The energy-saving potentials that can be developed by the power electronics industry are estimated by scientists to account for 20 to 35 percent of the current demand for electrical energy.

However, it is not enough to merely optimize the performance of individual semiconductor components in order to achieve optimal energy efficiency in power electronic systems. New system solutions, high-tech materials and innovative component concepts are necessary. That is why we keep close contact to our customers and jointly develop the power products of the future", said Christian André, President of Rohm Semiconductor GmbH.

The SiC & power forum offers us a unique platform to underline our competence in the market and to inform customers from all over Europe about the potential of Silicon Carbide (SiC)", André continues.

"With the focus to develop smaller, stronger and faster helps the ROHM SiC & power forum to generate networking and get time to discuss solutions with the ROHM experts and to get familiar with the existing and future portfolio", Jan Carstensen, Director Sourcing & Logistic Danfoss Silicon Power GmbH concluded.

The next SiC & power forum is planned for autumn 2019.
