Rohm Co. Ltd is set to buy a 200mm fab from Renesas Electronics Corp for approximately $3.7 million (450 million yen).

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

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

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