World's First Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor with Capacitance of 0.1µF

Murata has developed the first multi-layer ceramic capacitor with a maximum capacitance of 0.1μF. The GRM011R60J104M, measures 0.25 x 0.125 mm and is available in a 008004 footprint. Mass production of this new product is scheduled to begin in 2020.

As smartphones supporting 5G become more widespread and devices such as wearable devices become increasingly multi-functional and more compact, the demand for smaller and higher density electronic circuitry is growing. Among the components employed in this circuitry, multi-layer ceramic capacitors are essential for electronic devices and are used for a wide range of applications such as in smartphones and wearable devices. As the high-end smartphones are equipped with around 800 to 1,000 capacitors, there is a considerable need for such components to be made even more compact.

By using its original ceramic and electrode material atomization and homogenization technology, Murata has achieved a mounting surface area approximately 50% smaller and a volume approximately 80% smaller than that of its conventional product (01005 inch size) with a capacitance of 0.1μF. Moreover, the new product has a capacity of around 10 times that of the same-sized product (008004 inch size) initially mass-produced by the Company.

In the future, Murata will continue to conduct research and development into ceramics and high-precision, microscopic layering technology for electrode materials, expand our lineup to meet the needs of the market, and contribute to the further miniaturization and greater functionality of electronic devices.
