Our presence at Electronica 2022

This year, Exxelia was able to exhibit its products this year in three distinct clusters, reflecting three particular areas of activity:


Aircraft & Space

Embedded Products cluster, bringing together components that can be mounted on a satellite, radar or aircraft, we were ready to introduce two innovations that are particularly well suited to the challenges of the aviation of the future and the objectives of decarbonisation of the air. Its latest film capacitor innovation called MML™ (named after its "Miniature Micro-Layer" dielectric) shows an energy density up to 4 times higher than other film dielectrics. MML® technology makes power capacitors smaller, lighter and compatible with higher temperatures, and is therefore particularly suitable for DC-Link, decoupling & charge-discharge applications.

Alongside MML™ components, we presented the latest innovations in magnetic components, saving up to 40% in weight and 20% in volume while dissipating more power, some of which have been designed for eVTOL applications, as well as the CCM & Dual Active Bridge multi-output transformers.

Rail & Energy

Exxelia showed Alcon capacitors for the first time at its Rail & Energy cluster. Alcon is one of India's leading designers and manufacturers of standard and customised aluminium electrolytic and film capacitors for niche markets. Alcon supplies many of the components used in trains, electrical charging stations and power generation systems. Exxelia's film and ceramic capacitors for signalling systems, as well as current and instrument transformers, and resistors was presented on display.

Medical​​

Exxelia Micropen & Exxelia Ohmcraft components was showcased at Electronica for the very first time with a unique offering for the medical sector. Indeed, Exxelia Micropen's unique additive printing technology is widely used for disposable medical equipment such as endotracheal tubes or surgical ablation tools, and high voltage resistors are used in laboratory equipment such as mass spectrometers or thermal cyclers.

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.
