CUBISIC HTLP : Exxelia expands its range of low profile aluminum electrolytic capacitors

Exxelia expands its range of low profile aluminum electrolytic capacitors and defies high temperatures up to +125°C


June 7, 2022 - Paris, France - Exxelia, a global manufacturer of complex passive components and subsystems for harsh environments, is expanding its CUBISIC capacitor range with a HTLP (High Temperature Low Profile) version. This CUBISIC HTLP offers, in a thin rectangular packaging, the highest energy density of capacitors in its class, combined with a high temperature resistance (-55° → +125°C). 

 

CUBISIC HTLP, the new rectangular capacitor range that changes the game 

The new range of CUBISIC HTLP by Exxelia clearly stands out! Why? 

  • It offers up to 60% more capacity than any other rectangular electrolytic capacitor on the market, in the same volume, while having a 5,000-hour life span.
  • Covering a temperature range of -55° → +125°C, the CUBISIC HTLP is designed to provide excellent performance in extreme temperatures, compatible with the most severe military and aerospace applications. 

 

Engineers facing complex design requirements and looking for an easily integrated product will gain space and reliability through the use of improved materials fully REACH compliant.

The CUBISIC HTLP withstands 20g vibration and is low-pressure qualified, making it compatible to 92,000 feet in altitude. It is ideally suited for integration into cockpits, actuators, and power generation in commercial and military aircraft as well as radar and laser systems. 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS :

  • Capacity from 140μF to 58 000μF
  • Voltage from 7.5V to 350V
  • Service life of 5,000 hours at 125°C
  • Operating temperature -55°C to +125°C
  • 20g vibrations and 92,000 feet altitude 
  • RoHS versions available

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
