Murata's world's Smallest Chip Inductor - 0201 size (0.25 x 0.125mm)

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TOKYO: 6981) (ISIN: JP3914400001) has developed the world's smallest 0201 <millimeter> size (0.25 x 0.125 mm) *1 chip inductor*2 — a first in the industry. The volume of this new chip inductor is approximately 25% of the 0402 <millimeter> size (0.4 x 0.2mm) , the predominant chip inductor presently used in market leading smartphones.

Murata will be exhibiting this innovative chip inductor at their booth in "CEATEC JAPAN 2012", which will be held from October 2.

The number of electronic components used in compact mobile devices continues to increase to enable an increasingly greater number of features. The growth in size of mobile devices is not proportional to the increase in number of features, which means that volumetric efficiency is a key factor in product design. This is driving a growing need for ultra-small components that can support high-density mounting. The 0402 <millimeter> size high-frequency chip inductors, which have been the smallest size commercialized so far, have seen increasing widespread adoption, especially for use in high-frequency modules. However, to meet to future market needs for smaller size, Murata has mobilized its own newest micromachining technology to become the first company globally to produce prototypes of 0201 <millimeter> size chip inductor, which are the world's smallest.

"The new 0201 <millimeter> size product is a high-frequency inductor with ultra-miniature dimensions and a high performance, and they make full use of the circuit design technology that Murata has advanced in its own unique way." says Mr. Yukio Hamaji, Executive Vice President of Murata Manufacturing. "In the months and years ahead, Murata plans to further reduce the size and improve the performance of high-frequency circuits and continue to stand in the vanguard of the electronics industry as a leader of high-frequency inductor technology."

Murata plans to ship engineering sample before the end of fiscal 2013.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
