In this undated photo released by Murata Manufacturing Co., Murata Executive Vice President Yukio Hamaji, who heads the component business, speaks about development of its latest capacitor, measuring just 0.25 millimeter by 0.125 millimeter at the Murata headquarters in Nagaokakyo, Kyoto Prefecture, central Japan. Hamaji said that building something that small, each composed of even tinier layers of material to store electricity, is a challenge, requiring precision in preparing raw materials and baking the ceramic. “This is so small you can barely see it, especially if you need bifocals,” he told The Associated Press.
