Magnetics at Extreme Conditions: Exxelia to Showcase Innovations at APEC 2024

Exxelia is thrilled to announce its participation in the upcoming APEC 2024 conference to be held in Long Beach, California, USA.

APEC 2024The event will feature a compelling presentation by Exxelia's own Victor Quinn* on the topic of "Magnetics at Extreme Conditions" as part of the EMI & Magnetics session.



APEC 2024 Exxelia montage interviewVictor Quinn, a expert in the field, will delve into the intricacies of magnetic components and their performance under extreme conditions. With a focus on Exxelia's cutting-edge innovations, the presentation promises valuable insights into the challenges and solutions in the realm of electromagnetic interference and magnetics.

About the Session:

The EMI & Magnetics session at APEC 2024 is a platform for industry leaders and experts to share their knowledge and advancements in electronic components. Victor Quinn's presentation will shed light on Exxelia's commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of magnetics, especially in environments with extreme conditions.

The target audience is electronics and magnetics design professionals, component engineers, purchasing agents and design engineers who develop components used in magnetics for extreme conditions.


Why Attend:

This presentation considers engineering methods to develop magnetic components for selected extreme power electronics conditions. These extreme application conditions include environmental and electrical operating conditions that compel unusual design and development processes, component materials, test methods and other controls to assure high reliability. Presentation content will help designers and project managers understand methods of risk management when magnetics are required for highly demanding applications.

Primary goal is to help power electronics professionals prevent excessive design iteration and reduce risk of unexpected magnetics failure for systems operating in extreme conditions. Recommended design experiments, empirical test methods and qualification methods will be provided.
The second goal is to help other professionals involved in the development of components for magnetics further anticipate component requirements for magnetics in extreme conditions.










  • Innovative Solutions: Learn about Exxelia's latest breakthroughs in magnetic component technology.
  • Expert Insights: Benefit from Victor Quinn's extensive expertise and experience in the field.

Low-pass filter solutions are mainly used for EMI suppression in electronics systems. Exxelia Technologies (ex-Eurofarad), part of Exxelia Group, has developed several ranges of miniature filters with different low-pass configuration (C, L, Pi, T, 2xPi, 2xL and 2xT) mainly intended to protect electronic equipment from interferences. Exxelia Technologies produces sophisticated filters assembling Exxelia Group’s manufactured ceramic capacitors (X7R/ NPO) with ferrite inductors or winding cores in a shielding case. This solution’s main benefits are performance, reliability and optimal traceability. Considering a filter in a shielding case implies a good metallic package to insure high shielding performances with attenuation up to 10 GHz. Among options, Exxelia offers glass sealing, steel or kovar package using tin, silver or gold plating treatments to withstand any thermally or mechanically challenged applicaiton. Exxelia offers innovative EMI suppression filter solutions providing great shielding performance including the FC030 feedthrough mounted on shielding enclosure and FCM030 series designed to prevent EMI on printed circuit board. FC030 series is feedthrough filter allowing to prevent not only EMI conduction but also EMI radiation on power supply or data signals designs up to 200V. FC030 insertion loss can be 20dB at 1MHz to reach 70dB up to 10 GHz. FC030 series is extremely performant on low frequencies applications. On the other hand, FC030 can offer very low capacitance values starting from 5pF allowing to protect high bandwidth data signals. Operating temperature from -55C° up to +175C°. FC030 series is ESA qualified.   FCM030 features same design and performances’ as FC030 and is intended for surface mount devices. FCM030 is packaged in full metallic silver plated allowing optimal contact with ground plane that improves the interferences flow to the ground. The series particularly fit for amplifiers, radars, sensitive HMI, accurate measuring.
