Exxelia's components onboard Rover Perseverance
At the end of a seven-month journey, NASA's Perseverance robot has landed on Mars yesterday at 3:55 pm EST. The mission's objective is to search for traces of ancient primitive life on the Red Planet. The robot is equipped with several measuring and sampling instruments, including SuperCam, MEDA and PIXL served by our components: Transformers and Inductors : SESI, CMC and MPCI series Film capacitors PM94 series Tantalum capacitors CTC21 series Ohmcraft resistors HVD, HVR and CN series The main objective of SuperCam is to characterize the rocks present on Martian soil. The instrument can perform remote analyzes thanks to its laser and its spectometers, without waiting for the samples to return to earth, all with the aim of detecting any traces of primitive life. The Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer, known as MEDA, makes weather measurements including wind speed and direction, temperature and humidity. It also measures the amount and size of dust particles in the Martian atmosphere. PIXL is an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer that provides fine-scale detection and analysis of chemical elements within the rocks and soil.
EXXELIA, A EUROPEAN SOURCE OF HIGH Q FACTOR DIELECTRIC RESONATORS
Operating frequencies in wireless communications have shifted towards high frequency band and thus frequencies higher than 1 Ghz are now commonly utilized. In addition, the microwave frequency spectrum becoming severely crowded and sub-divided into many different frequency bands, designers are systematically looking for resonators giving them a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. Dielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia Temex, daughter company of Exxelia Group, has developed with support of ESA and CNES, a new high-end dielectric material, E7000 series, designed for high-end filters where high Q factor is requested. E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. E7000 provides high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ. Typical applications: Satellite multiplexing filter devices, radio links for communication systems (LMDS),
