Proud to be on Mars !
Two Exxelia film capacitors on-board the InSight spacecraft
The NASA InSight spacecraft landed on Mars on November 26, 2018 with two Exxelia film capacitors onboard. Designed and manufactured in France, these high precision capcitors are mounted on the French sismometer.
NHB series - NPO dielectric
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.
