The company had prototype versions of the fixtures on its booth at the Electronica tradeshow in November 2008 (see photo).
On the strength of the energy-conserving nature of such fixtures, Rohm is targeting 10 billion yen (about $110 million) in sales in fiscal 2010. “[The company] hopes to be competitive by making its own LEDs,” said the Nikkei article.
