Keywords:Murata? capacitors? mobile devices?

Murata Manufacturing recently begun the mass production of 0805-size (2.0 x 1.25mm) monolithic ceramic capacitors packaged in narrow-pitch (2mm) embossed tape.

0805-size monolithic ceramic capacitors are used for products, such as small mobile devices, requiring large capacitance as well as personal computers, digital cameras, TVs, and automobiles.

The conventional 0805-size monolithic ceramic capacitors are packaged in a 4mm-pitch embossed tape that holds 10,000 pieces per reel with a diameter (mm) of 330. These new products are packaged in a narrow-pitch (2mm) embossed tape that holds double the quantity per reel (20,000 pieces per reel) of the same 330mm diameter.

The packaging is more eco-friendly and also saves space. it also reduces the frequency of changing the reel by the customer. Also note that the same embossed tape can be used for 0805-size 22?F capacitors.
