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 Enable Rapid COVID-19 Testing

Diagnostic medical device companies have been working tirelessly to develop testing solutions, particularly those that can provide rapid and reliable results. To make these test kits possible, manufacturers turned to Exxelia Ohmcraft—a leader in thick-film, high-voltage, high-precision resistor design and manufacturing The new all-inclusive rapid testing solutions involve processing patient samples using a thermocycler, an instrument that is used to amplify DNA and RNA to identify COVID-19. The thermocyclers utilize high-ohmic-value, low-noise surface mount resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft to function. The resistors were required to meet tight specifications, including a small form factor to enable the testing devices to be portable. “Due to the current crisis, the customer was moving extremely quickly to get these test kits developed, produced, and into the hands of as many healthcare systems as possible. As a U.S. manufacturer with industry-leading lead times, Exxelia Ohmcraft was able to provide custom resistors essential to their mission,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “We are proud to partner with companies committed to helping fight COVID-19.” 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.

ESA QPL Film Capacitors PM907S and PM948S are full series of Polyester Film Capacitors. PM907S products are suitable for voltages from 50V up to 1250V and offer capacitance values from 82nF up to 180μF. PM948S can be used from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both series can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current. Film capacitor Series PM907S and PM948S are ESA QPL certified according to the ESCC Detail Specification No. 3006/025 and 3006/026   Smallest ESA QPL Ceramic Capacitor of the Market Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the ESA Qualified Part List status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The  0402 size QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. They are available either in the very stable NPO dielectric (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.   Miniature EMI filters for space application Exxelia’s gold-plated glass-sealed EMI filters SFC030 is the solution of choice to protect several embedded power supplies and data lines.  These small and reliable filters are available up to 5A @ 200V and 22nF.  Available in a Kovar package, the better alternative to steel for enhanced temperature cycling resistance, all Exxelia’s EMI filters for space are ESA qualified according to ESCC 3008. Thanks to this extensive experience in stringent ESA testing, Exxelia is able to adapt the tests of any filter according to any need (example: SMD 20A chip, 0pF capacitor value for an arrays of filters).
