Supporting the Transition away from Fossil Fuels with the Power of Electronic Components
What Are the Conditions for Increasing the Efficiency of Power Conversion and Motor Drives and for Expanding the Use of SiC and GaN Power Semiconductors?
There is a move to update the base material of devices from Si to SiC or GaN in the power semiconductor field to accelerate the pace of efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. We explain here what technological advances are needed in peripheral components such as capacitors and inductors to maximize the effect of that update.
Report on Murata's Participation in the Automotive Engineering Exposition 2023
Murata Manufacturing participated in the Automotive Engineering Exposition. This is an automobile technology exhibition that was held in Yokohama from May 24 to 26, 2023 and in Nagoya from July 5 to 7, 2023. We now introduce here the solutions we have proposed for the electrification, automation, connectivity, and otherwise of automobiles with a focus on the exhibition at the Nagoya venue.

Achieving the SDGs Through MLCCs (Part 2)
Continuing from Part 1, this article introduces specific SDG initiatives regarding Murata's MLCCs. It is part of a series that introduces technology articles about Murata Manufacturing.
Achieving the SDGs Through MLCCs (Part 1)
This article focuses on MLCCs (Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors), which are core products of Murata, and introduces case studies regarding SDG initiatives. It is part of a series that introduces technology articles about Murata Manufacturing.
Automotive MLCCs Balancing Reliability with Miniaturization and High Capacitance in a Closely Intertwined Evolution with the CASE Trend (3/3)
In Part 3 of our series, we will learn about the direction of development associated with the remaining two elements consisting of Shared and Services (S) and Electric (E), as well as the measures implemented when conducting advanced development of technologies and products in anticipation of needs amid changing automobile industry supply chains.
Automotive MLCCs Balancing Reliability with Miniaturization and High Capacitance in a Closely Intertwined Evolution with the CASE Trend (2/3)
Part 2 of our series will introduce the technologies and production systems that support the strengths of Murata’s automotive MLCCs. In addition, we also heard more about the direction of automotive MLCC development due to the progress of the Connected (C) and Autonomous (A) features that are part of the four elements that make up the CASE trend.
Automotive MLCCs Balancing Reliability with Miniaturization and High Capacitance in a Closely Intertwined Evolution with the CASE Trend (1/3)
Automotive MLCCs must prioritize the implementation of a higher level of quality that is completely different from the MLCCs for consumer devices. We spoke with two automotive MLCC product technology managers who are well versed in the application and technology requirement trends in the automotive industry about the type of MLCCs required in the CASE era, the frontlines of technology development to meet those requirements, and future developments.
Installing Electronic Circuits of Dramatically Increasing Size into Compact Devices - Murata's MLCC for 5G Smartphones (Part 2 of 2)
In Part 2, we talked about the difficulties in developing MLCC-specific manufacturing technology and the technology that solved our issues, as well as why Murata’s development system is so strong and continues to lead the way in miniaturizing and increasing the capacitance of MLCCs. Murata engineers also explained the prospects for further miniaturization and capacitance expansion of MLCCs.
