FOUNTAIN INN, SC, March 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components designed to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, is set to acquire the tantalum and polymer capacitor business assets of ROHM Semiconductor. The two companies recently entered into a definitive agreement, which provides that ROHM Semiconductor (ROHM Co., Ltd.) will transfer its tantalum and polymer capacitor business assets, including all of its tantalum and polymer capacitor manufacturing lines and intellectual property. relevant, to KYOCERA AVX. . The transfer is expected to be executed on August 5, 2022, and ROHM will continue to produce tantalum and polymer capacitors and supply them to KYOCERA AVX until all relevant production lines have been successfully transferred to the manufacturing site of KYOCERA AVX. This will ensure continued supply for ROHM customers and immediately increase the already extensive selection of electrolytic capacitor solutions available to KYOCERA AVX customers.

“KYOCERA AVX is delighted to announce the acquisition of the tantalum and polymer capacitor business assets of ROHM Semiconductor and further expand our already extensive portfolio of electrolytic capacitor solutions,” said Johnny Sarvis, CEO of KYOCERA AVX. “KYOCERA AVX is the world’s leading supplier of tantalum capacitors, as well as the largest supplier of high reliability manganese dioxide (MnO2) solid tantalum capacitors for medical, military and aerospace applications. Additionally, we have four global manufacturing plants to ensure we can provide the flexibility and capacity required by these demanding markets.

“Our polymer capacitors also offer significant advantages over other technologies, including high capacitance ratings in compact and discrete form factors, low ESR, stability over time, and benign failure mode under operating conditions. recommended,” Sarvis continued. “In addition, they are environmentally friendly, lead-free, halogen-free and RoHS compliant and are ideal for use in commercial, industrial, automotive and aerospace applications, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, systems telecommunications and semiconductors. discs.”

“KYOCERA AVX also has an open and progressive ethical sourcing policy and is the first Tantalum Capacitor supplier to comply with the OECD Conflict Minerals Guidelines and Legislation, which are achievements at the global impact that we are extremely proud of,” said Sarvis.
