Selecting the most appropriate LPWAN protocol
Projections show that the trend for people living in urban, rather than rural, environments will continue, with hundreds of millions relocating to cities over the next few decades. Consequently, the demands being placed on local amenities and the rate at which available resources are consumed are both rising dramatically – and this, in turn, is putting intense strain on the existing infrastructure.

Murata multilayer ceramic capacitor with value of 1μF
Murata has announced the development of a tiny laminated multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) with a capacitance value of 1.0μF in the 01005 inch size (0402M) measuring just 0.4x0.2x0.2mm.
Surface mount ferrite beads improve noise suppression
Murata has announced the BLM18SP_SH1 series of surface mount ferrite beads constructed in a 1608 (1.6x0.8mm) package designed specifically for automotive applications.
6-DOF XYZ-Axis MEMs sensor for continuous monitoring
Murata has announced the development of a new single package 6-DOF XYZ-Axis MEMs sensor for safety-critical automotive applications.
MLCCs with low levels of ESL for automotive
Murata has now begun volume production of two new multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). Each of these components exhibits low levels of equivalent series inductance (ESL) and is targeted at automotive implementation. Supplied in a 0402 format (with 1.0x0.5mm dimensions) and providing a 1μF capacitance, the NFM15HC105D0G3 a tiny three-terminal low-ESL MLCC.
LTE-M solution secures Deutsche Telekom certification
Murata Electronics has announced that its LTE-M solution powered by Altair Semiconductor’s advanced cellular chipset has secured Deutsche Telekom certification for operating on the carrier’s German 4G LTE wireless network.
Long-life 24V battery modules for industrial applications
Murata has developed an all-in-one 24V battery module (LIPY041WWPCSY6), that is well suited for any industrial equipment requiring high levels of output such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and robots.
0201-inch size PTC thermistor moves into production
Murata Manufacturing says it has succeeded in commercialising the world's smallest*1 PTC thermistor*2 (commonly known as a resettable fuse*3) in the 0201 inch size (0.6×0.3×0.3mm) for mobile devices, and has recently begun mass production of this device under the part number PRG03BC181QB6RL.
Tiny AI module developed with Coral intelligence
Murata has announced that it has created a tiny AI module in partnership with Google – the Coral Accelerator Module. The custom designed module packages Google’s Edge TPU ASIC within a miniaturised footprint.
Small 100nF ceramic capacitor for mobile applications
Murata has announced a small new multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC). As portable devices such as smartphones, hearing aids, wearable technology and other modules become increasingly multifunctional and more compact, so the demand for higher circuit densities is growing among electronic engineers.
Supporting the development of future sensor technology
Murata has inaugurated a new factory in Vantaa, Finland, increasing the size of its existing production and product development unit by one-third. The company’s investment of €42 million has brought the total area of the new plant to around 16,000 square metres.
Automotive Ethernet withstands temperatures up to 150°C
Murata has announced the release of the DLW32MH201YK2 common mode choke coil (CMCC) for Automotive Ethernet (100BASE-T1) applications. The choke coil is able to withstand extreme temperatures and is AEC-Q200 compliant.
Dense AC/DC power supplies for compact applications
Murata has announced the PQU650 series of open-frame, 650W-rated AC/DC power supplies by Murata Power Solutions. The PQU650 series offers the highest power-density product on the market, with forced air- and convection-cooled ambient ratings.
Transformer for high power, high frequency applications
Murata has announced a new transformer technology for high power, high frequency applications that uses a novel winding technique to allow designers to efficiently reach power and frequency levels that were never possible with conventional winding methods.
Guarantee reduced noise specification in five gigahertz band
Murata has announced the release of the BLF03VK series of ultra-compact noise filters specifically designed for the five gigahertz band, one of the frequency ranges used in WiFi (wireless LAN) communications. The filters are the first in the world to have a specified, guaranteed impedance value at five gigahertz.
Soil sensor minimises environmental damage
Murata has announced a highly accurate soil sensor that contains three sensors in one package. Aimed at the agricultural and horticultural industries, the sensor enables growers to increase the yield and quality of crops while experiencing lower costs associated with reduced water and fertiliser usage, these being the most important application areas for the sensor.
Murata’s ultra-small SAW devices address the needs of 5G
Murata has announced new surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices for RF filtering and duplexer duties. The devices address the ongoing and ever increasing need to reduce the size of components in mobile phones, especially with the coming of 5G. Murata’s SAYAV/SAYAR series for duplexing come in the 1612 size, and the SAFFW series in 0907 size for Rx filtering.
