TI introduces the industry's lowest-power, low-jitter retimers for 4K UHD video and camera interface

High-performance devices resolve HDMI® 2.0 and MIPI® signal integrity issues in video, display and camera system designs

Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced three high-performance retimers which enable an extended signal range over long traces, connectors and cables without degradation of signal integrity. These devices expand TI's high-performance retimer portfolio, and support flexible, cost-optimized system design, enabling designers to speed their products to market while maintaining optimal performance. With up to 60 percent lower power consumption than competitive devices and the widest temperature range from -40C to 85C, the new retimers enable robust video and camera signal quality in equipment such as desktop and laptop PCs, mobile devices, high-definition televisions (HDTVs), and automotive infotainment systems.

Murata to introduce the world’s first 05025M size monolithic ceramic capacitor with a capacitance value of 1 μF

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has developed the world’s first 05025M size (0.5 × 0.25 × 0.25 mm) monolithic ceramic capacitor with a capacitance value of 1 μF (X5R characteristics, 6.3 V rated voltage), and started mass production in April 2016.

Mobile electronics such as smartphones and wearable devices are becoming smaller, thinner, and more sophisticated. With these advancements, the number of components mounted on the substrate is increasing, driving the need for even smaller and thinner components. Accordingly, Murata increased the accuracy of its proprietary elemental technology and developed the world’s first 05025M size monolithic ceramic capacitor, thereby achieving a capacitance value of 1 μF (X5R characteristics*1, 6.3 V rated voltage) in the world’s smallest component volume. With this new capacitor, Murata will again contribute to the continuing miniaturization and sophistication of mobile electronics.
