Background

Many electronics companies from around the world have thus far advanced into the Greater China Region and turned the region into an active center for the development and design of electronic devices. However, various EMC*1 issues have surfaced accompanying the growth of wireless technologies, as in other electronics production sites. To resolve these issues, Murata has constructed its first electromagnetic anechoic chamber facility abroad, equipped with the latest measurement instruments.

Drawing on our independently developed technologies, we will utilize the electromagnetic anechoic chamber facility and aim to disseminate EMI*2 countermeasure products and EMC technologies throughout the Greater China Region, and expand the sales of Murata EMI countermeasure products by providing solutions to EMC issues.
