Mass production of transmission modules for smartphones now underway

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has started the mass production of transmission modules with a low current consumption for cell phones and smartphones.

These are the world's smallest transmission modules whose mounting footprint has been slashed by 50% compared with previous products, and their sizes have been achieved by the fabrication of a monolithic construction through the use of LTCC circuit boards*1. By incorporating a stabilizer*2 (isolator function) , the amount of current consumed when conditions change in the environments where cell phones and smartphones are used has been successfully cut by up to about 20%. This accomplishment will contribute to simplifying the design of the cell phones and smartphones.
