Realizing the thinnest thickness of 0.15 mm on top level (*1) in the industry

Announcing the release of “the low profile Multilayer NTC Thermistor with 0201 size”

Contributing to reducing the thickness of the high performance mobile terminal devices, such as smart phones, and crystal unit with built-in thermistor

(*1)Our investigation of the Multilayer NTC thermistor, as of November 26,2012

November 26, 2012, Osaka, Japan-Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in commercializing “ the low profile Multilayer NTC Thermistor with 0201 size ”, contributing to reducing the thickness and to having the higher performance of the high performance mobile terminal devices, such as smart phones, a variety of modules, and crystal unit with built-in thermistor. Newly developed thermistors feature the thinnest thickness (※1) in the industry with 0201 size and the most stable resistance value on top level (※1) in the industry.

As high performance mobile terminal devices, such as smart phones and tablet PCs, have become smaller, thinner, as well as more multi-functional, Multilayer NTC Thermistors to be mounted as a temperature sensor have been required to be low profile and higher stable resistance in addition to resistance tolerance equal to our current series. To meet the market demand, Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has commercialized “ the low profile Multilayer NTC Thermistor with 0201 size” , featuring the thinnest thickness(※1) in the industry (thickness: 0.15 mm ) and the most stable resistance value(※1) on top level in the industry, and will start sample shipments.
