Tiny 0402M multilayer ceramic capacitor ideal for smartphones
Murata has developed what is believed to be the world’s smallest, laminated multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) with a capacitance value of 1.0 μF in the 01005-inch size (0402M) measuring just 0.4- x 0.2- x 0.2-mm.

The GRM022R60G105ME01 multilayer ceramic capacitor with a rated voltage of 4 Vdc is already in mass production and the GRM022R60J105M, with a rated voltage of 6.3 Vdc, will be in mass production in 2021.

MLCCs with a capacitance of 1.0 μF are widely used in various electronic devices with as many as 1100 being installed in a single smartphone. These new components have been developed to satisfy the demand for smaller, thinner and more sophisticated mobile electronics and enable the further miniaturization of electronic devices like smartphones and wearable devices.

Murata’s proprietary thin layer technology for ceramic elements and thin-sheet formation technology has contributed to a 35% reduction in footprint and a 50% reduction in volume ratio when compared with Murata’s existing product with the same capacitance value.

Takanori Hibino, Capacitors Product Manager of Murata Europe said “Our proprietary thin sheet forming process has enabled Murata to further reduce the size of our MLCCs. We remain at the forefront of electronic technology innovation and we will continue to contribute to making communication devices smaller and in size and more multifunctional.”
