Smyrna, GA --- Murata Americas has developed the GRT series, a new line of automotive-grade monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) that meets the Automotive Electronics Council’s (AEC)-Q200 Grade 2 standard. The line is ideal for automotive infotainment and comfort-and-convenience applications, such as navigation systems and audio equipment. It offers a case size of 0201 to 1210 (EIA), capacitance range of 1.0pF to 100uF, and 4 to 100VDC rated voltage. Further, the line delivers temperature characteristics of X5R, X6S, X7R, and C0G.
Over the last several years, there has been an increased demand for both industry-compliant and automotive grade MLCCs. Murata’s GRT series is comprised of several variations of the solution to ensure that the market’s needs are being fully met. The lineup consists of a range of 818 capacitors offering different temperature characteristics, rated voltages, and case sizes. Given that, these components deliver enhanced reliability in a decreased package size – two critical benefits in designing for infotainment and comfort-and-convenience devices.
