General Manager, Connectivity Module Products Dept., Connectivity Products Division, Communication Business Unit
After entering Murata Manufacturing in 1988, Oida worked on developing techniques for monolithic capacitor measurement. From 1992 to 1998, he was then responsible for the development of ceramic multilayer substrates and microwave devices. Starting in 1998, he was responsible for product development, sales engineering, production technology, and quality control for short-range wireless communication products, before taking his current position in 2011. Oida's favorite pastimes are listening to music, playing musical instruments, and driving.
Murata has continually improved the function of connectivity modules while downsizing them. Along with the growing smartphone and tablet PC markets, our connectivity modules are increasing their market shares. To supplement our traditional strength of hardware technologies such as ceramics and RF circuit designs, we have worked on software technology by drawing on expertise available from both inside and outside the company.
Today, we have reached the point where we provide product support for our customers to achieve certifications by the radio regulations andWi-Fi® standards.
In addition to our hardware and software technology, customers in the market for in-vehicle equipment highly regard our dependable support as well.
Communication will play an increasingly important role in the evolution of the automotive industry.
