Miniaturized Chip Trimmer Capacitor

Tue, 10/30/2001 - 8:03am
Murata Electronics announced a new ultra-small trimmer capacitor (1.5 mm W × 1.7 mm L × 0.8 mm H). Constructed without plastic or lead, the TZR1 series, available in two capacitance values (1.5 ~ 4.0 pF and 3.0 ~ 8.0 pF) improves capacitance consistency performance and soldering heat resistance.

With its small size, the TZR1 gives engineers more design flexibility because of increased board space. In addition, the process of mounting the trimmer cap to the board costs less with the TZR1 because it includes a parallel fixed capacitor that is built-in. The reduced size and innovative design also benefits consumers who are demanding smaller, less expensive products with improved quality and capabilities.

As a dielectric ceramic component, trimmer capacitors have adjustable capacitance. However, Murata's trimmer capacitors also include stable capacitance in order to protect against aging and environmental stress. These characteristics make it highly suitable for wireless phones, computers, crystal oscillators, keyless entry, radar, FM tuning circuits and video games.
