Larger Batches of High Q-Factor Dielectric Resonators
Exxelia can now produce larger batches of its E7000 series for increased cost-effectiveness. Designed for high-end filters where Q-factor is critical, especially in space or military applications, the E7000 series of dielectric resonator features tremendous properties.
Dielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia with the support of ESA and CNES developed the E7000 series that provides a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q-factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. E7000 features the high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range from 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ.
Being one of the few manufacturers producing its own raw materials, Exxelia perfectly masters the production of dielectric resonators. Induced by the success of this new range, the company is now able to provide larger batches (up to 20kg of powder) of its E7000 series while keeping the exact same product properties, resulting in opportunities for cost-effective volume fabrication.
Typical applications for the E7000 series: Satellite multiplexing filter devices, radio links for communication systems (LMDS), military radars.
Gammes de condensateurs HiQ à l'EuMW
Exxelia Temex will be exhibiting at European Microwave Week 2016 through its mother group Exxelia. Showcased on the booth #237 will be all the company’s solutions intended for applications requiring low loss in equivalent series resistance (ESR) and high Q factor for specified DC or RF voltage, including Classic HiQ, Super HiQ and NHB series. Classic HiQ series is a range of RF ceramic capacitors providing low ESR and Ultra High-Q. The high-density ceramic construction provides a hermetic package and the highest working voltage on the market; up to 1500V and RF currents. Available in 0505 and 1111 sizes with capacitance values from 0.1pF up to 1000pF, the Classic HiQ series is perfectly adapted for applications such as: linear RF power amplifiers (LPA), mixers, filter networks, timing circuits, delay lines, oscillators, etc. Super HiQ series offers excellent performance in critical high RF power applications requiring consistent and reliable operation. The range has been engineered in all standard EIA sizes to provide constant capacitance over voltage, temperature and aging. It is also available in RF specific sizes (0402, 0603, 0805, 1206, 1210). The ultra-stable Super HiQ series offers Ultra-low ESR and Ultra HiQ with capacitance values from 0.2pF up to 1000pF. In addition, it enables superior high-voltage handling with working voltage up to 1500V. This series is particularly fit for cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, RF generators applications. Typical circuit applications: filters networks, matching networks, tuning, coupling and DC blocking. New: NHB series is a complete range of MLCC based on NPO dielectric material providing a very high Self Resonant Frequency and limiting the parasite Parallel Resonant Frequencies, available in 1111size with capacitance ranging from 0.3pF to 100pF. NHB series offers excellent performance for RF power applications at high temperature up to 175°C and at 500 VDC. The lowest ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series is particularly fit for high power and high frequency applications such as: cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, point to point / multipoint radios and broadcasting equipment. Typical circuit applications: impedance matching, bypass, feedback, tuning, coupling and DC blocking. All capacitors are packaged either as bulk chips or with tape or reel. All components are RoHS compliant and available with magnetic and non-magnetic terminations. They also provide as a good alternative for MIL-PRF-55681 / CDR capacitors. European Military, space grades and custom made capacitors are also available on request.

PM907S products are suitable for voltages from 50V up to 1250V and offer capacitance values from 82nF up to 180μF. PM948S can be used from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both series can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current. Film capacitor Series PM907S and PM948S are ESA QPL certified according to the ESCC Detail Specification No. 3006/025 and 3006/026 Smallest ESA QPL Ceramic Capacitor of the Market Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the ESA Qualified Part List status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The 0402 size QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. They are available either in the very stable NPO dielectric (type 1) or the high capacitance X7R (type 2). CEC and CNC series combine high capacitance values with high thermal and voltage stability. Versions with polymer terminations are also QPL-certified. Miniature EMI filters for space application Exxelia’s gold-plated glass-sealed EMI filters SFC030 is the solution of choice to protect several embedded power supplies and data lines. These small and reliable filters are available up to 5A @ 200V and 22nF. Available in a Kovar package, the better alternative to steel for enhanced temperature cycling resistance, all Exxelia’s EMI filters for space are ESA qualified according to ESCC 3008. Thanks to this extensive experience in stringent ESA testing, Exxelia is able to adapt the tests of any filter according to any need (example: SMD 20A chip, 0pF capacitor value for an arrays of filters).
