Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd. recently announced it has developed reportedly the world’s smallest 0201 < JIS > (0.25 x 0.125 mm) monolithic ceramic capacitor. The volume of this new capacitor is approximately 25% of the 0402 < JIS > size (0.4 x 0.2 mm), the predominant monolithic ceramic capacitor presently used in some smartphones. Monolithic ceramic capacitors are assembled into a variety of electronic devices; it is said that 400-500 of them are used in the latest smartphones. The number of electronic components used in compact mobile devices continues to increase to enable a growing number of features.

“Murata has successfully developed the 0201 < JIS > size monolithic ceramic capacitors by combining element technologies the company has built up over the years,” said Yukio Hamaji, executive vice president. “As a leading ceramic capacitor vendor, we will continue to pursue development of ultra-small ceramic capacitors with larger capacitance and lead the electronics industry even in overall services, including product quality and supply framework.”
