ROHM Semiconductor presents new solutions for Power and energy management in the automotive applications. xEV (Electric Vehicles) can contribute to substantial reduction CO2 emissions, and India has laid out optimistic plans to accelerate the adoption of EVs by year 2030.
ROHM is pushing forward with the latest cutting-edge development of SiC* (Silicon Carbide) power devices, which are expected to realize dramatic loss reductions compared to conventional Si (silicon) power devices. These power devices will be used more and more on electric vehicle (EV) motors and inverters.
Energy savings and reduced system costs in all kinds of applications are heavily influenced by choosing the right power device. With its new developments resulting from the group’s extensive research and design initiatives, ROHM is able to offer customers not only a full line-up of efficient, compact products for their applications, but also a complete solution for the power circuit designs.
- Nano-Pulse Control- Power ICs for Hybrid-Vehicles, e-Bike
In recent years, in the automotive sector where energy savings and environmental performance are increasingly demanded, mild hybrid vehicles utilizing 48V systems that provide better cost performance than full-hybrid cars, and improve fuel efficiency over conventional 12V power supply systems are attracting increased attention.
- EV-inverter & Charging Stations – SiC Power Devices
ROHM is a major supplier of auto-electronic components providing energy efficient power solutions for xEV (Electric Vehicles). The drive towards eco-friendly mobility across the world, and accelerating in India too, means that Electric Vehicle is a key focus area for the company. Starting 2016, ROHM has started to extend support for Formula E, as an official technology partner to the Venturi Formula E team, that attracts e-motor sports fans from around the world.
- LED Driver reference solutions- Automotive DRL/Rear-Lamps
Automotive headlights are increasingly transitioning from conventional halogen lamps to LEDs. As such significant growth is expected in this sector. And although halogen lamps are still the mainstream choice, LEDs currently occupy 25% of the total headlight market. This share is predicted to increase to 40-50% by 2021-2022. LED lighting technologies are also expanding worldwide to increase the range of applications.
- ‘Made in India, for India’ – Product Development for Two-Wheeler Emissions Control and Integrated Lamp Control for LED Lighting Applications
Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission norms in India by 2020. In the backdrop of BS-VI emissions norms to be implemented in India for all vehicles, including two-wheelers, Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) Control Systems will be required on two-wheelers, by 2020. Fuel Pump with Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor forms an integral part of EFI System on two-wheelers.
