Vitesco and ROHM sign a long-term SiC supply partnership

Vitesco Technologies says it has secured strategically important capacities in energy-efficient SiC power semiconductors through a long-term supply partnership with ROHM – worth over USD 1 billion until 2030.

The development partnership with ROHM, which began in 2020, is said to have created the basis for the supply partnership that was signed in Regensburg.

"The supply partnership agreement with ROHM is an important building block for securing Vitesco Technologies' SiC capacities in the years ahead. We have had very good experience in our development cooperation so far and are now looking forward not only to continuing it, but also to intensifying it further," says  Andreas Wolf, CEO of Vitesco Technologies, in the press release.

Vitesco Technologies' inverters with integrated ROHM SiC chips will be adopted by two customers, to be applied inside electric vehicle powertrains. Vitesco says it will start supplying a first series project as early as 2024. The company is thus even ahead of the originally targeted timeline.

"In the high-growth automotive market, SiC is a pathfinder for higher efficiency. With an expected higher market share of more than 30 percent, we are strongly positioned here and have gained a strategic partner in Vitesco Technologies for further market penetration," says Dr. Kazuhide Ino, Member of the Board, Managing Executive Officer and CFO of ROHM Co. Ltd.
