Murata Manufacturing Introduces New Rotary Position Sensor

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has introduced the SVM4 series of rotary position sensor. Measuring just 4.0 x 4.5 x 2.0 mm the SVM4 series is approximately an eighth of the size of Murata's previous position sensor the SV03. Despite its miniscule dimensions the SVM4 exhibits a linearity of +/- 2% and suits a wide variety of space-constrained applications such as finger-joint controllers in humanoid robots or to provide angular control in very compact spaces such as in radio-controlled model and game console controllers. The effective rotational angle is 240 degrees and with a useable temperature range from - 40 degrees C to +85 degrees C can be used in most operating environments. Other potential applications for the SVM4 include use in wearable devices such as headsets and hearing aids or as a lens/iris feedback sensor in compact digital cameras.

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Expands Monolithic Ceramic Capacitors

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has expanded its offering of monolithic ceramic capacitors with interposer substrates with the addition of new 0603 of 1.6 x 0.8mm size products with X5R characteristics and rated at 4.7µF and 35V. The latest electronic devices tend to generate less noise, so "squealing caused by MLCC vibration has emerged as an issue in designing power supply circuits for applications such as laptop PCs, mobile phones, and digital cameras. In 2012, Murata developed and introduced the ZRB series of MLCC with interposer substrate as a solution for squealing issues. It suppresses MLCC vibration via the interposer substrate, substantially reducing the effects of vibration on the main circuit board. The new additions to the 0603 (1.6 x 0.8 mm)-size lineup are rated at 4.7µF and 35V. This brings advanced squealing countermeasures to circuits requiring a high level of reliability. The MLCC is mounted on an interposer substrate, contributing to a reduction in the squealing level. The new product has the same L and W dimensions as the previous MLCC, eliminating the need to alter the land design on the circuit board when replacing with the new product. Parts list for MLCC size 0603 (1.6 x 0.8 mm), X5R characteristics, 4.7µF, M deviation (±20%), and rated voltage 35V: ZRB18AR6YA475ME05.
