February 7, 2013 – Mouser Electronics, Inc. now stocks award-winning products from Murata. Products featured by the ECN Readers Choice Tech Awards include Murata’s KCM and KRM series MLCCs, the MZB1001 Microblower, and the LXDC series DC-DC Converters.
KCM and KRM metal terminal MLCCs (multilayer ceramic capacitors) provide high reliability for thermal and mechanical stress, offer space savings and high capacity by stacking two MLCCs, and feature capacitance values from 4.7µF to 47µF. The KCM series meets AEC-Q200 and is suitable for automotive applications. The KRM series, with ferric allow terminals, is designed for commercial use. The unique terminal design reduces acoustic noise and makes these MLCCs ideal for use in DC-DC converter noise suppression circuits.
Murata Microblowers, provide thermal management for products too small for heat sinks, heat pipes, or motor fans. At only 20 x 20 x 1.85mm, the high-pressure air pump moves up to 0.7L per minute with just 0.2W of power during typical usage.
Murata LXDC series Micro DC-DC Converters achieve ultra-compact sizes by mounting a power IC and an I/O capacitor to an inductor-embedded ferrite substrate. These devices, with a small footprint, are designed especially for mobile consumer electronics. LXDC converters feature low EMI noise as well as high efficiency using synchronous rectifier technology.
