Murata capacitors are used in hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles by the leaders of the coming generation as well as in spacecraft instruments where high reliability is demanded. Furthermore, Murata capacitors support high-performance mobile phones, smart phones, familiar home appliances such as energy saving LED lighting, and each and every product in society. Murata's technology and reliability continue to be highly praised.
Artist's Image of the Hayabusa in Space Murata ceramic capacitors have earned a good reputation and are now adopted in fields requiring a high level of reliability, artificial satellites and submarine optical cable relay stations among them, in recognition of Murata's design technologies, mass production technologies and evaluation/analysis technologies, which it has developed over many years Murata is the only domestic multilayer ceramic capacitors company approved by JAXA and have been widely adopted in the well-known asteroid probe, Hayabusa, the weather and communication satellite, Himawari, the robotic cargo spaceship (HTV) Konotori, which supplies the International Space Station, and in other areas of international communications.
The Hayabusa was launched on May 9, 2003 to bring surface material from the asteroid "Itokawa" back to earth, and returned on June 13, 2010. This probe was launched with a plan to establish sample return technology for the first time in history.
- Good equipment systems are created from good parts and good designs, and good parts are created from good materials and good processes. -
Murata established a "Basic Quality Control Policy"
that collectively controls all phases from design, selection of material, procurement, production, and sales to service. Based on the point of view of "good equipment systems are created from good parts and good designs, and good parts are created from good materials and good processes," Murata continuously develops unique products to open up new fields.
Murata offers the No. 1 most abundant lineup in the industry, responding to all possible needs, and proposing ideal solutions.
Murata does business with manufacturers
across the globe, and Murata parts are utilized in all kinds of electronics worldwide—from the home appliances we use in our everyday lives, to equipment that demands absolute reliability such as automobiles, aerospace instruments, and implanted medical devices like pacemakers. The total number of multilayer ceramic capacitors Murata has sold overall is close to nine trillion and still increasing! If nine trillion 0603 Size (1.6 x 0.8mm) capacitors were lined up one next to the other, they would stretch from the Earth to the Moon and back almost 18 times! The applications where Murata capacitors play a vital role will only continue to grow.

For List of ISO14001 Certified Plants (production plants for ceramic capacitors):
The thin layer technology of the dielectric layer is an important point in the compactness and large capacity Murata strives for in our capacitors. We have established a processing technology to control the size and shape of the grains of the ceramic powder at high accuracy, and to distribute it equally at high density.
Thinner, smaller, and more accurate. Murata continues to create leading-edge capacitors.
