Exxelia showcases Space Grade Magnetics & Ceramic Capacitors at Space Tech Expo Europe 2019 in Bremen, Germany

November 5th, 2019 – Paris, France - Exxelia, a leading global designer and manufacturer of highly engineered passive components, will be showcasing its ESA qualified CCM technology and its EPPL C48X Ceramic Capacitors range booth K-24 at Space Tech Expo Europe, November 19-21 in Bremen, Germany.

 

ESA Qualified CCM Technology

Exxelia’s highly customizable Chameleon Concept Magnetics technology allows to manufacture inductors and transformers. Available in 5 different sizes allowing a high number of windings and up to 10*2 pins, this technology withstands harsh environments, shocks and vibrations and operates over a wide temperature range of -55°C / +125°C.   

Thanks to its epoxy molding protecting the windings and ensuring a better thermal dissipation to the pins and PCB, CCM products imply 50% less temperature rise, hence offering an additional 10 to 20% more power compared to a standard technology.

The CCM Technology in 5 key takeaways:

  • Ideal for the design of multi outputs transformers
  • Time saving & Higher reliability: up to 10*2 pins avoiding lead wire connections
  • Easy mounting on PCB: compatible with pick-and-place surface mount
  • Up to +20% more power versus standard technologies
  • No additional cost for tooling and qualification

 

C48X Ceramic Capacitor range officially listed in EPPL

Combining the advantages of class 1 (NPO) and class 2 (X7R) dielectrics, the C48X dielectric (-2,200ppm/°C) provides, under working voltage, equivalent capacitance values to an X7R material with the advantage of a very low dissipation factor of less than 5.10-4.

  • Withstands very high dV/dt, up to 10kV/ µs
  • Very low dissipation factor -> less than 5.10-4
  • Capacitance value of 3.3µF 200V -> up to 40 times more than an NPO
  • Polymer flexible layer for chips range

Compatible to surface mounting (chips, DIL or ribbon leads) or through-hole mounting and available from 200V to 5kV with sizes ranging from 1812 to 6560 allowing a maximum capacitance of 3.3µF at 200V, the EPPL C48X series is ideal for pulse and charge/discharge applications and precision filtering capacitance in thermally challenged environment for AC or DC voltage and 400 Hz application such as on-board network.

Exxelia Ohmcraft Custom Resistors Help Ensure Reliability of Most-Deployed Anti-Tank Missile in the World

In times of warfare, the reliability of military weapons is absolutely critical to the success of a mission. For nearly a decade, military contractors have leveraged Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom, high voltage resistors and dividers to ensure product performance in a variety of military applications, including the FGM-148 Javelin—the most-deployed anti-tank missile in the world. In a variety of military applications, including the FGM-148 Javelin—the most-deployed anti-tank missile in the world.“Missiles are exposed to extreme climate conditions and often sit idle—sometimes for several years—before they are launched. When that time comes, it is essential for those missiles to perform as expected,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “Exxelia Ohmcraft custom resistors are designed to support the rigorous precision and reliability specifications required by military suppliers to withstand the harsh environmental conditions, ensuring that the missile remains fully operational under all circumstances. Exxelia Ohmcraft performs a full range of military lot acceptance testing (LAT) on resistors as necessary, and works closely with military contractors to meet the design requirements for each particular application. In the case of the FGM-148 Javelin, a small, lightweight form factor was imperative to keep the missiles as lightweight and portable as possible. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.
