Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd has begun mass production of 0805-size (2 x 1.25mm) monolithic ceramic capacitors (MCC) packaged in narrow-pitch (2mm) embossed tape. According to the company, the tape holds 10,000 pieces per reel with a diameter of Φ 330mm.

The packaged products claim to hold double the quantity per reel (20,000 pieces per reel) of the same Φ 330mm diameter devices, which makes the packaging more eco-friendly and space-efficient, noted the firm. This packaging can also reduce the frequency of changing the reel by the customer and can be used for 0805-size 22µF capacitors.

The MCCs, the company added, are used for many products such as small mobile devices that require large capacitance as well as personal computers, digital cameras, TVs and automobiles.

Mass production started at Fukui Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd from July 2013.
