New Murata RF measurement facility reduces system development time for customers

17/12/2007

Caponago, Milano, Italy: Murata Europe announces the opening of its SAW filter and resonator measurement facility in Milan, Italy. The measurement facility has a team of RF engineers to support designers at all stages of their RF projects in the 300, 400 and 800MHz ISM bands. The facility provides application notes, reference designs and testing services for customers’ own prototypes.

Customer evaluation of parts can take months, often because they may not have specific knowledge of the parts and can lack time and resources. Murata’s new RF facility welcomes specific enquiries concerning choice or application of Murata parts and offers customised solutions to speed up approval cycles.

The new facility will also work to create and issue application notes for Murata SAW products, including schematics, bill-of-materials (BOM) and PCB reference designs. Development platforms will also be available, featuring some of the most popular RF ICs from different vendors, to help reduce customers’ development times.

“I'm glad to announce that our SAW filter and resonator measurement facility is now fully operational,” comments Massimiliano Premoli, the engineer responsible for the RF measurement facility located at Murata Elettronica S.p.A. (Italy). “There are so few RF engineers available in the market today that our customers often require post-sales support for SAW devices. Our new facility will meet this need.”
