Specially built to target tiny electronic devices including smartphones as well as tablets, this power supply has an output of 0.6A, and the entire module itself measures 2.5mm x 2.3mm. Murata managed to achieve this particular feat after combining its ceramic multilayer board technology and manufacturing technology for ferrite materials in order to form an inductor (which is, a coil for power supply) within the module substrate. Murata hopes to see smartphone, tablet computer and digital camera manufacturers around the world rely on their module for future products.
