POWER SOLUTIONS AT PCIM 2017
Exxelia is exhibiting at PCIM 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany. From May 16th to 18th at booth #6314, Exxelia will be showcasing innovative power solutions.
Magnetic Components based on Adaptive CCM Technology
Exxelia designed CCM technology to respond to the growing interest of electronic engineers for inductors and transformers with multiple outputs, high power density and reduced footprint. Qualified for aeronautic and space applications, the CCM product line features terrific robustness. The monolithic design provides high mechanical performance, proven by the successfully testing in accordance with MIL-STD-202 (methods 213 and 204). The series offers five different sizes, allowing optimized component design in a pick-and-place surface mount (SMD) package. Through-hole (TH) packages are also available upon request. The CCM series is particularly flexible with a number of pins options available, from 2×6 pins for the smallest package, up to 2×10. CCM transformers and inductors can operate over a wide temperature range with a minimal temperature of -55° C. The standard thermal grade of the technology is 140° C. Thanks to the technology design, the thermal resistance is 30% lower than standard industrial components. The epoxy molding protecting the winding ensures a lower temperature gradient and a better heat dissipation. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Component materials meet UL 94-V0 rating.
Cost-effective Common-mode Chokes Qualified for Aerospace
Exxelia designed this extensive and cost-effective range to be an easy commercial (COTS) solution for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications. The TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal or vertical mounting. TCM chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 mH to 47 mH under rated currents from 0.3 to 4.0 A. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Excellent thermal properties allow the series to operate from -55° C to +125° C. The high mechanical performance of the component materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) makes TCM a perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries.
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.
NHB series - NPO dielectric
The NHB series is a complete range of MLCC based on NPO dielectric material providing a very high Self Resonant Frequency and limiting the parasite Parallel Resonant Frequencies. The series is available in 1111 size with capacitance ranging from 0. 3pF to 100pF. NHB series offers excellent performance for RF power applications at high temperature up to 175°C and at 500 VDC. The lowest ESR is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary of new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series particularly fits for high power and high frequency applications such as: cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, point to point / multipoint radios and broadcasting equipment. Typical circuit applications: impedance matching, bypass, feedback, tuning, coupling and DC blocking.
