Piezo Vibe Solution Delivers Notifications to Wearable Devices

Press release date: June 14, 2017

Murata’s PJFV series consumes low-power in small, flat package

Murata Americas today introduced the PJFV series. This miniaturized, low power consuming product leverages piezoelectric ceramics to provide vibration notifications and announcements to wearable devices. It measures just 10.5mm × 3.8mm × 2mm, has a rated working voltage of 3V, and current consumption of 2mA rms.

Light and sound sensing products have historically been used for notification and announcement functions. With the roll-out of the PJFV series, now vibration solutions can be layered in as well. Further, these components are designed to enable ongoing miniaturization and contribute to extended battery life.

“Most vibration solutions for wearable products are currently ERM-based. The PJFV series differs as it offers substantially lower current consumption and better battery life in a smaller package. Murata has a strong history and substantial experience with Piezo materials that we leverage to achieve these features,” said Deryl Kimbro, General Manager - Sensor Products, Murata Americas.

The solution will be on display at Sensors Expo & Conference in San Jose from June 27-29, booth #539. Those interested in attending the show can use code 619L for a discounted rate. More information can be found at www.murata.com.
