Introducing new EXXELIA.COM

Completely re-designed Exxelia new website features user-friendly design, improved functionalities and enhanced rich content to assist electronic engineers, component purchasers, industry professionals and students to quickly access information.  Created with the user experience firmly in mind, the website has been designed to make Exxelia’s vast product portfolio easy to browse. A parametric search engine with filters specific to each product category (capacitance, voltage, temperature, insertion loss, current, frequency, etc.) enables to narrow down the product portfolio and access information in a quick, trouble free and efficient way. More than 680 product series are listed on the website with relevant literature accessible for each series: datasheets, 3D models, high-res pictures and much more.      Technical data, application guides, white papers work together to provide a detailed overview of Exxelia’s capabilities across wide range of technologies. An application section presents the major markets the group is involved in, with a dedicated product selection for every sub-environments: avionics & cockpit, actuation systems, satellites, radars, medical imaging, etc. This section also contributes to better present Exxelia’s diversified offer of components that includes capacitors, magnetics, filters and electromechanical solutions.  “We are thrilled about the new website launch and the robust information it provides to better understand Exxelia wide product offering. We believe this will improve the overall customer experience and strengthen our brand as a technology leader and quality product manufacturer” said Marie Evrard, Head of Marketing and Communication at Exxelia.  “We believe this new site will allow our visitors to have a very informative experience as we increase our market presence. The group continues to grow and it was necessary to streamline our website to make it easier to navigate.” states Jérôme Tabourel, Marketing & Sales VP at Exxelia. Exxelia new website will be updated on a regular basis with new product launches, company info, events and technical information.  

Exxelia revolutionary MML™ ultra-high energy density Film Capacitors

MML™ is a revolutionary new technology that provides the highest capacitance per volume in film capacitors available on the market.    Why is it a game changer? Because an unparalleled energy density of 400 J/dm3 allows for a tremendous reduction in size and weight compared to traditional Polypropylene or Polyester dielectrics, together with an increased operating temperature up to 140 °C and transient voltage protection.   Besides, MML™ capacitors offer a large flexibility in design, easily allowing low profile configurations. Several studies have been conducted on actual cases of controls and DC-Links functions for aircraft applications. All have shown about 50% reduction in size and weight compared to other film technologies.  The comparative picture with MLCC is even more flattering, as it demonstrates between 70% to 90% reduction in weight, while showing no capacitance derating with voltage applied and a low drift < 5% through the temperature range. Applications using clusters of stacked MLCCs can now be replaced by a single MML™ unit of similar size, with all the increased reliability that film dielectric offers. With such outstanding properties, Exxelia new MML™ capacitors are perfectly suitable for power supplies, DC-links, AC/DC/AC power converters, charge/discharge or power generation functions of commercial/military aircraft, satellite platforms and payloads, launchers, defibrillators, downhole tools and any applications of confined electronics. Samples are readily available on request. Features & Benefits : Miniaturization of the function : Up to 50% size reduction vs other film technologies ; matching footprint with stacked MLCC Lightweight : 50% lighter vs other film technologies ; 80 to 90% lighter than ceramic No capacitance derating in voltage, stable in temperature (<5% drift through the temperature range) Capacitance from 1μF to 1000μF  Voltages from 50V to 1000V  Operating Temperature -55 °C to +140 °C Highly customizable
