The acquisition of Renesas’ Shiga factory is scheduled to complete in February 2016 and to be used as a manufacturing line to produce to IGBT and MOSFET power devices and piezoelectric MEMS devices.

Under Renesas the fab is capable of 150nm CMOS production.

In August 2014 created a manufacturing business based at the 6-inch Miyazaki wafer fab of its Lapis Semiconductor subsidiary based on the combination of thin-film piezoelectric processes and MEMS. At the time Rohm said it planned to move production to 200mm-diameter wafers.
