2013 International CES

LAS VEGAS--Mouser Electronics, Inc. and Murata have teamed up at this week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, demonstrating the newest Murata technology, including high-performance MEMS sensors in a sleek 1/10th scale Mouser/Murata IndyCar model. Appearances by the Murata Boy robot entertained many of the thousands attending CES, the world's largest showcase for emerging technologies and innovations in electronics including telecommunications, wireless devices, computer hardware and software, automotive, digital health/fitness, audio, home connection, internet-based multimedia systems and more.

Murata is a co-sponsor Mouser's successful IndyCar program. The 1/10th scale model IndyCar displayed at Murata's CES Booth #35818 (LVCC South Hall 4) provides an ideal demonstration for Murata's 3D MEMS Gyro/Accelo Combination Sensors. The SCC1300-D04 sensor is a combined high performance gyroscope and accelerometer component, based on Murata's proven capacitive 3D-MEMS technology. The component integrates angular rate and acceleration sensing together with flexible separate digital SPI interfaces. Small robust packaging guarantees reliable operation over product lifetime. The housing is suitable for SMD mounting and the component is compatible with RoHS and ELV directives. It is designed, manufactured and tested against high stability, reliability and quality requirements.
