Cost reduction examples

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

DESIGN EXAMPLE

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
SMD designs SMD
C 22
R 9
L 22
Components 53


Murata SOLUTION: SIZE DIVIDED BY 3, COST BY 2.5



IMPACT ON OTHER COSTS

  • 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
