Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Approves the Payment of Year End Dividend; Elects of Takashi Shigematsu as an Outside Director

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. announced that at its 79th ordinary general meeting, approved the payment of year end dividend of JPY 100 per share. The company also approved the election of Takashi Shigematsu as an Outside Director.

Murata Launches LQW15CA 0402-Size Winding Type Inductors

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has launched LQW15CA 0402-size, or 1mm x 0.5mm, winding type inductors for audio line choke applications. The popularization of smartphones has given rise to the problem of reduced audio quality due to the effects on the audio line of electromagnetic noise from the communication frequency bands. In response, Murata has developed a new series of 0402-size (1.0mm x 0.5mm) winding type inductors with excellent Z characteristics in the communication frequency bands (700MHz to 2,700MHz bands). The new inductors are designed to reduce electromagnetic noise from communication frequency bands of smartphones and other mobile phones (approx. 700MHz to 2,700MHz. Winding type inductors provide large rated current and low DC resistance. These new inductors can be used in compact mobile equipment such as smartphones and other mobile phones.

Murata Manufacturing Expands Lineup of 1206- and 1210-Size MLCCs

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has expanded its lineup of 1206-size and 1210-size monolithic ceramic capacitors, or MLCCs, GRM series in the range exceeding 100µF with the addition of new products rated at 150µF, 220µF, and 330µF. As the functionality of electronic devices becomes more advanced, demand is growing for reduced mounting area and support for higher frequencies when designing power supply circuits for applications such as laptop PCs, servers, and communication infrastructure. Murata is working to expand its lineup of high-capacity monolithic ceramic capacitors as one solution to help meet this demand. Compared with the polymer capacitors typically used in the range above 100µF, Murata MLCCs deliver better ESR characteristics and compactness. The lower ESR levels mean that it is possible to replace polymer capacitors with MLCCs with lower capacitance. In addition, in circuits where MLCCs are connected in parallel to attain the required capacitance, higher-capacitance MLCCs can be used to reduce the overall number of components. Decoupling applications for low-voltage-drive ICs (CPU network processors, etc.) used in PCs, servers, network equipment, and communication infrastructure.
