10uF MLCC'er med reduceret formfaktor
Med en ny 10uF MLCC er det lykkedes Murata at forøge den realiserbare kapacitans pr. volumen-enhed og dermed bane vejen for yderligere produkt-miniaturisering (in english).
Leading electronics manufacturer Murata continues to position itself at the forefront of passive technology. Through its latest multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) introduction, the company is addressing the growing need for components that have elevated capacitance levels combined with miniaturized form factors and enhanced temperature performance.
Offering capacitance values of 10uF, the GRM series of MLCCs are supplied in a 0201inch/0603M package size. They are currently the smallest MLCC products on the market to deliver such capacitance levels, representing a 65% size reduction on the 0402 inch/1005M products that would normally need to be specified.
Consequently, they enable use of substantially fewer components, leading to board space savings and bill-of-materials costs benefits.
The GRM series benefits from key Murata innovations, including the company’s proprietary thin layer forming technology, plus a fully optimised high-precision lamination process.
These MLCCs are highly suited to incorporation into the decoupling and smoothing circuitry of smartphone handsets, portable equipment, wearables, domestic appliances, servers and IoT hardware.
- There are numerous market sectors where there is a definite need for capacitor components that have strong capacitance figures and also take up very little PCB footprint, explains Hidetoshi Nakagawa, General Manager of Ceramic Capacitor Marketing at Murata.
- Furthermore, the miniaturization of capacitors will contribute to reducing the environmental impact of the electronics industry and help enable long-term sustainability, with the quantities of materials involved being lowered and the amount of electricity consumed during their production also being curbed.
