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

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. 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.

Exxelia Micropen Expands Manufacturing in Honeoye Falls

To accommodate current and future demand for its technologies, Exxelia Micropen has completed construction to expand its Honeoye Falls facility by more than 20 percent. The 9,000-square-foot addition includes 5,000 square feet of new cleanroom space, enabling the company to double the capacity of its manufacturing operations.   Exxelia Micropen utilizes its proprietary technology to “print” ultra-precise lines of conductive inks on three-dimensional and flexible surfaces, including advanced medical devices. The technology is also used to make high-performance resistors for a wide range of demanding applications in aerospace, imaging, and electronics. Since 2017, the company has experienced double-digit growth every year as demand for its innovative engineering, design, and manufacturing services has escalated.   “As we continue to develop new partnerships to meet the unique needs of customers across the globe, we outgrew our space,” “The expansion allows us to boost our production volumes while we continue to provide the innovative technologies and exceptional service and delivery times that our customers have come to rely on.” said Ed Petrazzolo, CEO, Exxelia Micropen.   Exxelia Micropen partnered with Hamilton Stern Construction and Hanlon Architects for the expansion, which began in the spring. In addition to the manufacturing space, the project includes a new lobby, employee breakroom, and more office space. Parking also grew to a total of 140 spaces.   “The expansion of Exxelia Micropen’s facility is a prime example of the success of our Design-Build service, which provides clients with a cohesive, one-stop-shop experience to save time and reduce costs,” said Justin Hamilton, Principal, Hamilton Stern. “Our close partnership with Hanlon Architects, Marathon Engineering, and Exxelia Micropen enabled this project to be completed in roughly 13 months all while fully maintaining the facility’s production volumes. We are grateful for Exxelia Micropen’s trust in our firm to be part of their continued growth.”   “We are proud of what we have built in Honeoye Falls,” said Petrazzolo. “The talented employees we’re able to recruit from the Rochester area are critical to our success, and the expansion only reinforces our commitment to further develop our presence here. We look forward to a long, prosperous future as part of this community.”
