LAS VEGAS -- January 10, 2013

Mouser Electronics, Inc. and Murata have teamed up at this week’s
International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, demonstrating the
newest Murata technology, including high-performance MEMS sensors in a sleek
1/10^th scale Mouser/Murata IndyCar model. Appearances by the Murata Boy robot
entertained many of the thousands attending CES, the world’s largest showcase
for emerging technologies and innovations in electronics including
telecommunications, wireless devices, computer hardware and software,
automotive, digital health/fitness, audio, home connection, internet-based
multimedia systems and more.

Murata is a co-sponsor Mouser’s successful IndyCar program. The 1/10^th scale
model IndyCar displayed at Murata’s CES Booth #35818 (LVCC South Hall 4)
provides an ideal demonstration for Murata’s 3D MEMS Gyro/Accelo Combination
Sensors. The SCC1300-D04 sensor is a combined high performance gyroscope and
accelerometer component, based on Murata’s proven capacitive 3D-MEMS
technology. The component integrates angular rate and acceleration sensing
together with flexible separate digital SPI interfaces. Small robust packaging
guarantees reliable operation over product lifetime. The housing is suitable
for SMD mounting and the component is compatible with RoHS and ELV directives.
It is designed, manufactured and tested against high stability, reliability
and quality requirements.
