ROHM has launched a dedicated page for a new Product Longevity Program (PLP). It supplies information on the estimated supply periods for products scheduled for long-term supply – appropriate for industrial equipment and other applications with long life cycles.
In recent years, semiconductors and electronic components are increasingly installed in long-life applications, such as industrial equipment and automotive systems – needing the disclosure of applicable products and clarification of supply periods to enable product selection.
Products formally placed under the program (selected after considering the production system, equipment, material procurement status, and other factors) are disclosed together with the estimated supply periods. The goal is to improve searchability by enhancing the efficiency of customer product selection.
The PLP sets supply periods of 10 to 20 years for products (mainly power and analog) needing long-term supply, with relevant information such as supply status posted on the company's website. This information (target products, supply periods) will be updated once a year to provide the continuity of customer operations.
‘Quality is our top priority at all times’ has always been the company's goal. In line with a corporate objective of ‘contributing to the advancement and progress of culture through a consistent supply, under all circumstances, of high-quality products in large volumes to the global market,’ it has been supplying products that fulfil customer demands to attain a sustainable society.
