Exxelia Ohmcraft’s Small, Low-Noise Resistors Maximize Design Options and Accuracy for Sensor Manufacturers
For more than 25 years, leading sensor manufacturers have turned to Exxelia Ohmcraft to provide small-form-factor, ultra-low-noise surface mount resistors to be used in a variety of critical sensor applications.
For more than 25 years, leading sensor manufacturers have turned to Exxelia Ohmcraft to provide small-form-factor, ultra-low-noise surface mount resistors to be used in a variety of critical sensor applications. In these applications, Exxelia Ohmcraft’s resistors enable designers to miniaturize the sensor’s footprint or accommodate multiple sensors in close proximity to each other—all while increasing accuracy of the end products.
Resistors have a certain amount of electrical noise that is inherent in their construction, and the higher the noise, the more distorted the signal can become. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s high-resistance, low-noise chip resistors provide clearer signals to the sensor electronics, thereby improving their accuracy.
To ensure requirements are met for specialty sensors such as those used to measure acceleration, velocity, or vibration, Exxelia Ohmcraft works closely with design engineers, who appreciate the combination of high performance, reliability, and small form factor that the company can provide.
“Finding resistors that check all of these boxes can be a challenge for sensor designers. At Exxelia Ohmcraft, our understanding of these requirements allows us to provide the highest performing solution at the lowest possible cost,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. "In sensor electronics, it can be difficult to distinguish the signal one is trying to measure from the noise of the surrounding environment, but our low-noise resistors ensure that the signal quality is maximized.”
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.
WT83 - High Capacitance wet tantalum
Capacitance values have been strongly increased with Exxelia's new range of tantalum capacitors: WT83 is an extension of the ST79 families (according to CLR93 MIL values) but with double the capacitance. That is a pass for impactful miniaturization of existing designs by playing on both size and weight (for instance, WT83 offers 470µf 100V in a D size, whereas ST79 only gives 220µF in the same other conditions).
Exxelia unveils new Innovative Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor product line
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.
