The wireless industry (including Bluetooth and RF module manufacturers, as well as security and automotive electronics arenas) benefits several ways from Murata's new trimmer capacitor. 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.
