Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd reportedly seeks to form alliances and joint ventures to enhance its R&D capabilities. The company has been cooperating with various universities in Europe, including those in the United Kingdom, according to Dick Oram, managing director of Murata in United Kingdom.

Recently, the electronic components manufacturer acquired a licensing agreement for the R&D of a Li-ion battery technology using a flat multilayer technique instead of the conventional core technology. Terry Churcher, vice president of Murata's European business, said that the company sees large potential in the new technology. However, Murata announced that it will take at least a year before volume production begins.

Murata also reported that it entered an alliance in Denmark regarding bio-electronics R&D. The alliance will reportedly focus on developing SAW resonator technology.

Murata recently reported that its $16 million facility in China, Shenzhen Murata Technology Co. Ltd, will start manufacturing operations for power supplier on Dec. 1.
