Smyna, Ga. - Murata Electronics introduced a new line of miniaturized chip monolithic ceramic capacitors that employ ultra-thin dielectric layers, multiple case sizes, X5R characteristics and increased capacitance (up to 100 microfarads) and voltage values (6.3 volts).
With these factors in place, Murata's capacitors can be used for decoupling circuits in lieu of their aluminum or tantalum counterparts. This is particularly significant as the trend towards more functional and highly reliable electronic devices drive the industry's need for smaller, higher capacitance monolithic capacitors.
In addition, the low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and the temperature stability give the monolithic capacitor a competitive advantage over other electrolytics. Most commonly used for electronic devices, this enhanced capacitor line is intended for use in mobile communications equipment, digital audiovisual equipment, personal computers and other related devices.
"Murata's latest product line expansion demonstrates our commitment to furthering the advancement of ceramic material technology. In this case we used our expertise in materials and powder processing technology to achieve higher dielectric constants without compromising product reliability," said Karun Malhotra, capacitor marketing manager for Murata Electronics North America. "Our ultimate objective is to enable design engineers to continue developing the advanced products that the marketplace demands."
