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.

New Plug&Play filters for datacenters and mission critical facilities

Electronic equipment can leak sensitive information over conducted or radiated electromagnetic emanations, and signals transmitted down unprotected lines can potentially be intercepted. That’s why filters are implemented into systems to prevent EMI disturbances, as TEMPEST filters stop the high frequency EM signals (or noise) emanating inside the secured environment. Exxelia has a long history of manufacturing state-of-the-art electromagnetic interference (EMI) filtering technologies for space, avionic and defense markets. Thanks to this in-depth knowledge, Exxelia came to the conclusion that the installation of a product is as critical as its reliability, especially when shielding continuity and sensitive copper terminals are involved. That’s where Exxelia’s new full range of TEMPEST pluggable filters will save time and spare headaches! The 9260W series is a multi-socket line extension with a built-in 16A Tempest filter (minimum 60dB, from 100KHz to 1GHz), CE qualified according to EM 60950-1 standard. 9260W series Plug&Play solution is available with UK, US and EU standard plugs and can be provided with any other standard plug upon request. In addition, Exxelia completed its offer with the 9259W series of pluggable filters featuring various plug interfaces such as VGA/DVI, USB, Ethernet, Phone, Audio and much more. 9260W series and 9259W series are both fully compliant with EMC expectations and allow considerable time saving and cost-effectiveness. When a standard filter needs to be wired and shielded to each socket one-by-one before carefully re-closing the whole equipment, Exxelia new series can be installed using no special tools and with a smaller footprint. To all people handling sensitive information, a simple plugging operation is now enough to protect their data. Available now, 9259W and 9260W series are fully customizable upon request.
