Exxelia Ohmcraft High Voltage Chip Dividers Enable Design Flexibility for Manufacturers of Semiconductor Equipment

 Exxelia Ohmcraft High Voltage Chip Dividers Enable Design Flexibility for Manufacturers of Semiconductor Equipment   ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 17, 2021—Microchips—also known as semiconductors—are critical to the function of everyday technologies like mobile phones, computers, radios, and televisions. To finetune the outputs of their main power supply, manufacturers of semiconductor production equipment have leveraged custom resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft for more than 25 years for their high precision, high voltage and stability.   Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom surface mount resistors and dividers offer semiconductor equipment engineers with maximum design flexibility in the smallest footprint, as they have the ability to specify both the resistance value of a surface mount divider and the divider ratio. This allows engineers to produce the necessary voltage and current required to create the highest-quality end products.   “Traditionally, high-voltage dividers are made using two different resistors, but our high voltage chip dividers integrate them into one part,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “We always work closely with our customers to ensure that we meet the specific design requirements necessary to create their quality technologies.”   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.   # # #   About Exxelia Ohmcraft Exxelia Ohmcraft’s thick-film, surface mount resistors are engineered to meet application-specific needs. Our proprietary Micropen printing technology is the foundation for Exxelia Ohmcraft’s family of resistor products. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s precision leaded resistors are manufactured with our patented Micropen technology to create a unique serpentine design that withstands voltages up to 100kV and provides an unmatched level of performance and stability.

50th anniversary of our Pessac manufacturing site

Our manufacturing site in Pessac is one of the 12 industrial sites of Exxelia. It has approximately 130 employees. “We produce essential but inexpensive parts, but we produce 50 million a year! And we have a year of visibility on our order books", "We produce parts in complex alloys here, but also our own recipes for insulating ceramics", assures Mickaël Pelé, Director of the Exxelia Pessac factory. This factory was founded in Pessac half a century ago: it is an integral part of the life of the City and the Region, which have actively participated in its development. Perfectly inserted into the local ecosystem, there are numerous interactions with neighboring institutions, laboratories, universities, schools and businesses. The Pessac factory was built in 1971 and inaugurated in September 1972. Its creation was initiated by Jean-Claude Asscher, President of the Tekelec-Airtronic group. Initially dedicated to distribution, the Tekelec-Airtronic group launched into manufacturing under license to then develop and industrialize its own products. Its development followed that of electronics, telecommunications and IT in France and around the world. The group will reach a significant size: in 1992, with 20 companies employing 3,000 people in different countries, its turnover will exceed one billion dollars. The Pessac plant remained associated with the group until the early 2000s.   Here is a retrospective of the event in video:
