Exxelia Ohmcraft Custom Resistors Help Ensure Speed and Accuracy of Automobile Electronics Testing
ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 28, 2020 — Before being sent off to dealerships for sale, automobiles are subject to a series of tests as part of the production process. To keep pace with industry trends and customer demands, today’s cars contain more electronic devices than ever, all of which must be tested ...
For this purpose, manufacturers of automotive testing systems have relied on Exxelia Ohmcraft—a leader in thick-film, high-voltage, high-precision resistor design and manufacturing—for more than 15 years.
This type of automotive testing ensures that all of the vehicle’s electronic components meet the most stringent testing standards, screening out any faulty devices or malfunctions. Tests are often run on multiple electronics simultaneously, increasing the complexity of these testing systems, which utilize precision low-noise chip resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft for their accuracy and reliability.
“The automotive industry is rapidly changing and evolving, presenting manufacturers with not only new testing challenges, but the pressure to get their products into the market faster,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “By leveraging Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom surface mount resistors, automotive testing manufacturers are able to help their customers—automobile companies—meet the demands of the industry.”
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.
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.
