Murata has focused on the R&D of functional ceramic and the development of their potential applications. Ceramic technology is growing increasingly important as a key driving force in the creation of a new electronics revolution for the 21st century. Murata's commitment to this endeavor has resulted in their introducing a wide, diverse range of innovative ceramic electronic components. Murata Electronics N.A., Inc.'s product line includes capacitors, resistors / thermistors, coils (inductors), EMI suppression filters, resonators, piezo alarms, IF / RF filters, and RF connectors.
Murata LQM Series Fixed Inductors offer a wide range of current ratings, inductance values, and sizes - all with a magnetically shielded structure and low DC Resistance. LQM inductors feature a multi-layer type ferrite core and provide a current rating up to 1800mA. LQM devices are ideal for use in voltage conversion, choke, resonance circuit, and low-frequency filter circuit applications.
Murata LXMS MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules include UHF and HF devices for a wide range of applications. The UHF RFID modules provide an ideal solution for product traceability when mounted on a printed circuit board. These Murata UHF RFID modules use the board traces as an antenna for the transponder. Once the UHF RFID module is mounted, information can be stored and retrieved on MAGICSTRAP devices using any EPCglobal Gen2 / ISO 18000-6C compatible UHF reader/writer. These LXMS devices are ideal for use in telecom, automotive, and computer applications, as well as other designs in which an onboard RFID transponder is needed. Murata's HF RFID tag is approximately 1/10 the size of a conventional tag. Using multi-layer technology, Murata HF RFID Modules are fully compliant ISO15693 devices that can be adapted to a wide range of objects. These Murata HF modules feature an RF antenna embedded within the device.
Murata SN8000 Wi-Fi Module is a certified 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi module based on the Broadcom BCM43362 chipset. SN8000 is designed to fit indoor and outdoor sensor and control applications. It integrates Wi-Fi IC, RF front end, temperature compensated crystal (TCXO) and on-board antenna. The module dimensions are 24 x 11.4 x 1.9 mm. SN8000 is enabled with Broadcom WICED SDK software to support low power, low cost microcontroller platforms from STM32 ARM Cortex M3 and M4 families. The SN8000 module is an ideal solution for home automation, industrial control, Smart Energy, medical and healthcare applications with or without cloud services. The 2.4GHz Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n Development Kit is also available and features SN8000 Wi-Fi Module STM32F205RF MCU Mini-USD connector supporting USB-JTAG and USB-serial interfaces to STM32 MCU Serial flash (8M bits) for optional OTA feature Test points to SN8000 pins.
Murata XRCHA HCR Crystals are AEC-Q200 qualified for automotive use. This HCR is approximately 40% smaller than the industry norm and measures just 2.5 x 2.0mm. The XRC series is available with nominal frequencies in the range of 12-24MHz, and provide a highly accurate high quality clock that is required for automotive electronic control units (ECUs). Typically used for in-vehicle networks, the XRC series incorporates a crystal element within a ceramic resonator package structure. Frequency tolerance is typically ±100pm at 25 degrees C. Operating temperature range is -40 to +125 degrees C. The ESR is 30-50% lower than similar devices available currently on the market in spite of the small package.
Murata DLW Common Mode Choke Coils are part of the EMI suppression filter product line. The DLW Common Mode Choke Coils from Murata offer wound, low-profile construction in multiple case sizes and ultra-high self resonance frequency that enables high cut-off frequency for high-speed differential lines. The DLW Series also offers large current (7A max.) suitable for an input connector from an AC adaptor.
Murata MEMS Sensors product range includes accelerometers, gyroscopes, and inclinometers. Using Murata's 3D MEMS technology, the silicon capacitive sensors are very sensitive to inertial forces, but are insensitive to other environmental variables. The composition of single crystal silicon and glass ensures reliability, accuracy, and stability. Murata MEMS are hermetically sealed in a wafer level process, providing protection from particles and chemicals. The product line includes accelerometers, gyroscopes, and inclinometers.
Murata DMT Series Electrical Double-Layer Capacitors are high temperature EDLCs that offer long-term reliability of five years at 70ºC and wide operating temperature range from -30ºC to +85ºC. The DMT Series EDLCs from Murata have 4.2 voltage (constant) and 470mF capacitance, in addition to low ESR (130mΩ), low leakage current, and compact and slim design (21.0mm x 14.0mm x 3.5mm). As the newest addition to Murata's EDLC product line that delivers much higher energy storage and power density than any existing conventional capacitor technology, the highly reliable DMT Series exhibits a long life cycle exceeding 100k cycles.
Murata LXDC55K and LXDC55F Micro DC-DC Converters are the newest
additions to the Murata line of micro dc-dc converters, designed to meet
demands for a smaller footprint, lower EMI noise, and higher energy
savings. LXDC55K can handle a large current of up to 3A while LXDC55F is
for up to 1.5A applications. The output voltage can be set by the user
by simply changing the chip resistance value. Applications include
mobile devices such as smart phones and communications infrastructure
such as mobile phone base stations.
