These capacitors are suitable for use in non-critical circuits of implanted medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers, implanted diagnostic devices, implanted rehabilitation devices and implanted nerve stimulation devices.
They were developed based on high-reliability capacitor design technology, quality control, and process management know-how amassed by Murata in the development of markets requiring high reliability, such as the automotive market.
As verified by reliability testing including heat cycle and humidity-resistance load tests, they are guaranteed to withstand more severe conditions than our general-purpose (GRM series) capacitors.
* Non-critical circuits
This term refers to circuits in implanted medical devices that are not directly linked to life support, i.e., circuits that will not directly endanger the life of the patient should the functionality of the device be reduced or halted by failure of the circuit.
In the case of cardiac pacemakers, circuits that are not directly linked to life support would be considered non-critical circuits.
Murata also produces a series of capacitors (the GCR series) suitable for critical circuits linked to life support. Please contact your Murata sales representative for details.
