Murata GRM/GCM Series General Purpose Ceramic Capacitors are low
voltage, high dielectric constant type, in a smaller size with a higher
capacitance value. Available from C0G to Z5U temperature coefficients,
the GRM Series General Purpose Ceramic Capacitors are highly reliable, offer no polarity, and have a higher
resistance of solder-leaching due to the Ni-barriered termination
(applicable for reflow-soldering and flow-soldering). Murata GCM Series General Purpose Ceramic Capacitors offer higher resistance of solder-leaching due to Ni-barriered termination, and are applicable for reflow-soldering and flow-soldering. The operating temperature range of R7/C7/5C series is -55ºC to +125ºC and the GCM Series General Purpose Ceramic Capacitors is offered in a wide selection of sizes: 0.6x0.3x0.3mm to 3.2x2.5x2.5mm. The Murata GCM Series General Purpose Ceramic Capacitors feature excellent pulse responsibility and noise reduction due to the low impedance at high frequency, and are the Murata series of automotive rated capacitors. Now available with new low pF values and additional values within the 1206 case size.
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 accelerometers, designed to measure direction that is parallel or perpendicular to the mounting plane, include an on-chip EEPROM memory with the calibration coefficients for unit interchangeability. These sensors, intended for horizontal or vertical measurements, offer enhanced failure detection as well as zero point temperature dependance of less than 1mg/ºC.
Murata gyroscopes include both one-axis and three-axis gyros. One-axis gyros, designed for both horizontal and vertical sensing axes, are suitable for use in automotive and other high precision gyros. The three-axis gyro, based on a single complex oscillation mode and phase detection, is suitable for applications involving user interface control and optical image stabilization.
Murata inclinometers, offering the best shock durability on the MEMS market, provide high-accuracy leveling and inclination measurements in moving machines, vehicles, airplanes, construction machines, and hand held devices.
