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.
MIL 39006-Qualified Wet Tantalum Capacitors
Exxelia has received the M-Level (1.0%/1000h) MIL-PRF-39006/22 and MIL-PRF-39006/25 qualifications approval for its new ranges of wet tantalum capacitors. MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types feature hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads. Both ranges are available in all cases: T1, T2 T3 and T4 with extended capacitance and voltage ratings. MIL39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6V to 125V and provides from 1200µF @ 6V to 56 µF @ 125V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25V to 125V and provides from 680µF @ 25V to 82 µF @ 125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with large temperature ranges -55°C up to 125°C and are available with H vibration and shocks features. These state-of-art MIL-qualified wet tantalum capacitors are widely used in avionics applications where high performance and extreme reliability are required. Performance highlights compared to solid tantalum capacitors include more capacitance, higher ripple currents, lower ESR and lower dc-leakage current. “These new ranges introduction leverages our decades of experience in providing high-reliability capacitors for the Military market, and proves Exxelia’s ability to reach the most demanding specifications in terms of product development”, states Exxelia Sales & Marketing VP, Jérôme Tabourel, “We are proud to be part of the few MIL-qualified manufacturers of tantalum capacitors, our flexibility and advantageous lead times will bring new supply perspectives.” MIL39006/22 and MIL39006/25 are available for order now.
