Introduction of DSCC 93026 qualified Wet Tantalum Capacitors
Exxelia has received the qualification by the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) as an approved provider of WT84 wet tantalum capacitors under the drawing DSCC 93026.
Exxelia’s range of wet tantalum capacitors WT84 is now fully qualified to DSCC 93026 drawing for voltages from 25V up to 125V. Available in all case sizes (T1, T2, T3, T4) the family is housed in a hermetically sealed tantalum case and is designed to withstand the most stringent environmental constraints. Thanks to the continuous improvements conducted in the manufacturing processes combined with the high purity tantalum powder used by Exxelia, DSCC 93026 provides the highest capacitance per unit volume. In addition, compared to conventional wet tantalum capacitors, DSCC 93026 features much lower ESR and higher ripple current.
DSCC 93026 is qualified for capacitance values range from 10µF up to 1800µF at voltages from 25V up to 125V, and with operating temperatures of -55°C to 125°C. The series is ideal for use in high-reliability defense, avionics, radars and power supply applications requiring high capacitance or high energy storage.
DSCC 93026 is available now for order.
NEW INVAR TUNING ELEMENTS WITH SELF-LOCKING SYSTEM
Working frequencies in Space applications are shifting to Ka, Ku or even Q band, while cavity filters are undergoing the general trend towards miniaturization: this context calls for a much more precise and stable tuning element now offered by Exxelia Temex, daughter company of Exxelia, through their last innovative and unrivalled solution to incorporate a self-locking system into their Invar Tuning Elements. Invar-36 is a unique Iron-Nickel alloy (64 % Fe / 36 % Ni) sought-after for its very low coefficient of thermal expansion. With 1.1 ppm. K–1 between 0°C and 100°C, Invar-36 is about 17 times more stable than Brass which is the most traditional and common alloy Tuning Elements are made of. The working temperature range in Space is so wide that this property becomes essential for a reliable and stable cavity filter tuning. Self-locking system is a technology commonly used on Tuning Element made of Brass or other soft “easy-to-machine” alloys but is innovative and pretty advanced when applied to hard and tough Invar 36. The design consists of two threaded segments separated by two parallel slots. After cutting both parallel slots, the rotor is compressed in its length in order to create a plastic deformation. Thus, an offset is induced between the two threaded segments which generates a constant tensile stress in the rotor from the moment threaded segments are screwed.
POWER SOLUTIONS AT PCIM 2017
Magnetic Components based on Adaptive CCM Technology Exxelia designed CCM technology to respond to the growing interest of electronic engineers for inductors and transformers with multiple outputs, high power density and reduced footprint. Qualified for aeronautic and space applications, the CCM product line features terrific robustness. The monolithic design provides high mechanical performance, proven by the successfully testing in accordance with MIL-STD-202 (methods 213 and 204). The series offers five different sizes, allowing optimized component design in a pick-and-place surface mount (SMD) package. Through-hole (TH) packages are also available upon request. The CCM series is particularly flexible with a number of pins options available, from 2×6 pins for the smallest package, up to 2×10. CCM transformers and inductors can operate over a wide temperature range with a minimal temperature of -55° C. The standard thermal grade of the technology is 140° C. Thanks to the technology design, the thermal resistance is 30% lower than standard industrial components. The epoxy molding protecting the winding ensures a lower temperature gradient and a better heat dissipation. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Component materials meet UL 94-V0 rating. Cost-effective Common-mode Chokes Qualified for Aerospace Exxelia designed this extensive and cost-effective range to be an easy commercial (COTS) solution for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications. The TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal or vertical mounting. TCM chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 mH to 47 mH under rated currents from 0.3 to 4.0 A. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Excellent thermal properties allow the series to operate from -55° C to +125° C. The high mechanical performance of the component materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) makes TCM a perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries.
