Rohm

ROHM Co., Ltd. (ローム, "Rōmu") (tyo|6963) is a Japanese electronic parts supplier based in Kyoto, Japan. ROHM was incorporated as "Toyo Electronics Industry Corporation" by Kenichiro Sato (佐藤 研一郎) on September 17, 1958. The name was officially changed to "Rohm" in 1981. Sato has been president of ROHM from its founding. When ROHM was established, resistors were its main product. Later, the company began manufacturing semiconductors. IC's and discrete semiconductors now account for about 80% of ROHM's revenue. The name "Rohm" (which was originally written R.ohm) was derived from R, for resistors, the original product, plus ohm, the unit of measure for resistance.

AS of 2006, ROHM is among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders.
