SILICON PASSIVES, DECREASE YOUR COST
Murata realizations show that you can decrease significantly your costs at various level with Silicon Passive components.
Example 1: high volume product
Example 2: low volume product
What is the impact on BOM
of using PICS in a high volume application?
Example of a PICS for GSM, Edge and 3 W-CDMA transceiver
BOM FOR THE DISCRETE SOLUTIONS
Murata SOLUTION: HALF THE SIZE, HALF THE COST
OTHER DESIGN EXAMPLE
・Does the value proposition also apply to a low volume design?
・Example of a low volume application
Murata SOLUTION: SIZE DIVIDED BY 3, COST BY 2.5
- Cut investment costs in a new production line
→ Fewer SMDs to pick & place frees up manufacturing capacity!
- Reduced cost of stocks
→ Fewer components / less stock
- Additional cost reduction benefits
→ Simpler purchasing and supply chain
→ Use our design center to free up engineering resources
MANUFACTURING INVESTMENT SAVING IN THIS EXAMPLE
Saving of 36 seconds per board for P&P
For 100 k units it saves 42 days of production (with 100 % uptime)
>>NO NEED to invest in second product line
