Participation in the "Industry of the future" program by GIFAS
On Tuesday January 4, 2022, Exxelia participated in the launch of the second wave around the "Industry of the future" program for the Grand Est region at the Bologna site of LISI AEROSPACE.
"Industry of the Future" Program
Launched in 2019, for four years, financed by the government, as well as the Regions, OPCO2i, companies and GIFAS: the "Industry of the Future" program aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the sector through the introduction of new 4.0 technologies. This program, which is the result of close collaboration between the Industrial Committee, the GEAD and the AERO-PME Committee, is a continuation of the "Industrial Performance" program. Its objective is to use new digital and production technologies in all phases of a product's life. In this respect, the Exxelia sites of Illange and Marmoutier are concerned.
Frédéric BOIS, in his capacity as Director of the Exxelia site of Illange, was able to actively participate in the exchanges. The objectives were numerous, namely :
- Inventory of the industrial maturity of our site of Illange.
- Recommendation and deployment of Industry 4.0 tools best suited to the situation of each company.
Thanks to the Grand Est region which contributes to the financing of the program, to the partners: Cetim - Technical center of mechanical industries, BoostAeroSpace SAS, UIMM, DREETS, OPCO 2i, and of course to AERIADES as a facilitator of the aeronautical sector in the region.

HIGH VOLTAGE CERAMIC CAPACITORS BASED ON BRAND NEW DIELECTRIC MATERIAL
No more compromises between stability and capacitance! The brand new C48X material combines most advantages of NPO and X7R dielectrics, enabling the new high power and high frequency ceramic capacitor range to provide great stability in voltage, high capacitance, great dissipation factor and fast charge/discharge. Miniaturization is a driving need for future electronics pieces of equipment. This evolution, true whatever the application, leads Exxelia Technologies (ex-Eurofarad) to develop a brand new high voltage ceramic capacitors range based on a new dielectric material named C48X, combining most of the advantages of NPO and X7R dielectrics. Compared to X7R material, C48X dielectric allows to get the same capacitance values under working voltage with the unrivaled advantage of a very low dissipation factor (less than 5.10-4). Besides, it can also withstand very high dV/dt, up to 10kV/μs, which makes it the solution of choice for pulse and fast charge/discharge applications. Thus capacitors with C48X dielectric appear to be ideally suited for power applications where heat dissipation may be detrimental to performances and reliability. Exxelia Technologies’ capacitors based on the C48X material have been developed from 200V to 5kV with chip sizes ranging from 1812 to 16080, allowing a maximum capacitance value of 10μF 200V (10 times more than with an NPO ceramic). The standard stacked versions are proposed with a maximum capacitance value of 47μF 200V. Regarding the mounting of these capacitors, many configurations are possible to be compatible either with surface mounting or through-hole mounting. All these versions can be suitable for space use and can be designed in order to avoid any whisker growth risk (10% min lead in all tin-lead alloys used). The introduction of the C48X range in the EPPL (European Space Agency Preferred Parts List) for space is in progress for sizes 0603 to 6560 from 100V to 1kV up to size 1210 and up to 5kV until the size 6560). Some typical applications: • 400Hz Aircraft • Defense • Space • Precision/filtering capacitance in thermally challenged environment for AC or DC voltage
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.
