Strengthening business for the medical device market - Exhibition of RFM products at CEATEC JAPAN 2012
Murata will introduce "modules with built-in SAW for close-proximity communications" and "RFIC chip sets" at CEATEC JAPAN 2012 to be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture from October 2 to 6, 2012.
RFM, which was acquired in July of this year by Murata's U.S. subsidiary, has strengths in the development and sales of communication modules and high-frequency products based on SAW (surface acoustic wave) technology for the medical device, on-board device, industrial equipment, and energy-related markets. Murata intends to focus attention on these new markets, for which growth in wireless communications is expected. Murata aims to provide new value by fusing RFM's RF module design technology, original protocol technology*1 centering on FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) , and system development know-how in the Machine To Machine (M2M) *2 field with Murata's own various hardware and software technologies.
RFM products will be introduced as specialized products for the medical device market at CEATEC JAPAN 2012.
