Exxelia at IMS
Exxelia is pleased to exhibit at IMS in Philadelphia, USA. From June 11 to 15 at booth# 2050, the company will be previewing several high-reliability microwave and RF components dedicated to a variety of industries including medical, transportation and defense.
Ultra low ESR, high RF power and high self-resonant frequency
The 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. The series is available in 1111 size 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 is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary of new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series particularly fits 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.
100% invar tuning screws with self-locking system
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.
High Q Factor Dielectric Resonators in large batches
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.
Low Voltage 0402 MLCCs now in ESA QPL
Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the Qualified Part List (QPL) status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The case size 0402 QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. Dielectrics are based either in the very stable NPO (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. These ranges of versatile chip capacitors are intended for use in a wide variety of aerospace applications requiring the highest level of reliability: satellites, launch vehicles, payloads, etc. CEC19 features: - very stable NPO dielectric - maximum capacitance values: 330pF in 10V, 120pF in 16V and 100pF in 25V, - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C CNC19 features: - high capacitance X7R dielectric - high capacitance rating values: from 68pF to 12nF in 10V, 8.2nF in 16V and 5.6nF in 25V - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C
Exxelia at PCIM
Two new ranges of MIL-qualified tantalum capacitors: MIL39006/22 & MIL39006/25 The recently introduced ranges of MIL-qualified tantalum capacitors will be showcased on the company booth. MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types featuring hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads are available in T1, T2 T3 and T4 cases with extended capacitance and voltage ratings. MIL 39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6V to 125V and provides from 1200µF @6V to 56µF @125V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25V to 125V and delivers from 680µF @25V to 82µF @125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with a large operating temperature range of -55°C - +125°C and H vibrations and shocks resistance. PHM 912, very high energy density film capacitors PHM 912 is a new standard series of film capacitors based on a novel metallized plastic film dielectric from Dupont Teijin®. The PHM 912 capacitors are specifically designed for DC filtering or energy storage. Very stable in both temperature and frequency, they are well-adapted for applications such as filtering in H.F. switch mode power supplies, DC link or decoupling. The range can withstand temperatures up to 155°C and up to 175°C in custom version. With their high energy density, these capacitors allow highly integrated power filters. Their compact construction results in a low ESR, ESL and excellent high current and frequency performances. The series provides 250V @68µF and 0,27µF @1000V. The PHM 912 series makes significant advances over previous technologies by combining the benefits of excellent temperature resistance with superior energy densities, making it one of the most compact capacitors on the market. Felsic HV, long lifetime and high voltage screw terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitor The Felsic HV family of aluminum electrolytic screw terminal capacitors provides great performances in energy density combined with ultra-long lifetime. For instance, 6 800µF @450V fit into a volume of Ø77x220mm and can withstand 200,000 hours between 0 to 70° under 37Amps, which makes them the perfect choice for use in rolling stock traction systems or the CVS. The family also has one of the lowest ESR of its class with less than 10m0hms in most cases. Products are available for voltages from 160 to 450Vdc, and offer capacitance values from 1500μF up to 47 000μF offering the best compromise between reliability and compactness.
