Exxelia unveils new Innovative Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor product line
November 5th 2020 - Paris, France - Exxelia, a global manufacturer of complex passive components and sub-systems dedicated to harsh environments, launches its new Innovative Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Felsic HC product series.
FELSIC HC highest energy density of screw terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitor
What if engineers could save 30% on room and weight, for a given energy storage function? This is now achievable with EXXELIA new FELSIC HC series of aluminum electrolytic screw terminal capacitors !
As Jérôme Tabourel, Exxelia Vice President of Marketing and Sales says: “Thanks to the use of improved materials, this new FELSIC family offers the highest energy density of the market, while still offering ultra-long life time”. These excellent characteristics allow to reduce the number of components used for the function, hence allowing room and weight savings of 30% on circuit board and greater reliability.
Where to use FELSIC HC? These products are the perfect choice for Energy Storage and Power Industry equipment.
- Capacitance from 100μF to 3 121 000μF
- Energy density up to 21 µF/cm3 for a custom design
- Voltages from 10V to 500V
- Life time of 8000 hours at 85°C
- Operating Temperature -40°C to +85°C
Low Voltage 0402 MLCCs now in ESA QPL
Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the Qualified Part List (QPL) status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The case size 0402 QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. Dielectrics are based either in the very stable NPO (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. These ranges of versatile chip capacitors are intended for use in a wide variety of aerospace applications requiring the highest level of reliability: satellites, launch vehicles, payloads, etc. CEC19 features: - very stable NPO dielectric - maximum capacitance values: 330pF in 10V, 120pF in 16V and 100pF in 25V, - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C CNC19 features: - high capacitance X7R dielectric - high capacitance rating values: from 68pF to 12nF in 10V, 8.2nF in 16V and 5.6nF in 25V - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C
Euclid: The ESA mission embeds our magnetic components and capacitors
This remarkable achievement comes on top of our successful participation in ESA's JUICE mission and the presence of our components on board NASA's Perseverance rover. Euclid is an ambitious space mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) which aims to map the observable Universe and investigate mysterious dark energy and dark matter. The satellite will study galaxies that are at different distances from Earth using a 1.2m diameter telescope that carries two instruments: the Visible Light Observing Imager (VIS) and the Near Infrared Spectro-Imager (NISP). We are proud to have been selected as the supplier of high reliability passive components for this crucial mission. Our magnetic components (CMC 15, SESI inductor 9.1, 15 & 22) and capacitors have (PM 948S, PM 94S, DBIT X3S) been carefully designed and manufactured to meet the extreme requirements of space (ESA QPL) and play a key role in the success of the Euclid mission (we are inside PCDU = Power conditioning distribution unit). Our expertise and our experience in the design and manufacture of custom-made passive electronic components for the space sector, allow us to meet the most stringent requirements of the aerospace industry. We are determined to maintain our position as a trusted supplier for renowned space missions. Image crédit : ESA/C. Carreau,CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO View the press release
