MIL 39006-Qualified Wet Tantalum Capacitors
two new ranges of wet tantalum capacitors qualified to MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25.
MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types feature hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads. Both ranges are available in all cases: T1, T2 T3 and T4 with extended capacitance and voltage ratings.
MIL39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6V to 125V and provides from 1200µF @ 6V to 56 µF @ 125V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25V to 125V and provides from 680µF @ 25V to 82 µF @ 125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with large temperature ranges -55°C up to 125°C and are available with H vibration and shocks features.
These state-of-art MIL-qualified wet tantalum capacitors are widely used in avionics applications where high performance and extreme reliability are required. Performance highlights compared to solid tantalum capacitors include more capacitance, higher ripple currents, lower ESR and lower dc-leakage current.
“These new ranges introduction leverages our decades of experience in providing high-reliability capacitors for the Military market, and proves Exxelia’s ability to reach the most demanding specifications in terms of product development”, states Exxelia Sales & Marketing VP, Jérôme Tabourel, “We are proud to be part of the few MIL-qualified manufacturers of tantalum capacitors, our flexibility and advantageous lead times will bring new supply perspectives.”
INNOVATIVE LOW PASS FILTERS
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.
Euclid: The ESA mission embeds our magnetic components and capacitors
This remarkable achievement comes on top of our successful participation in ESA's JUICE mission and the presence of our components on board NASA's Perseverance rover. Euclid is an ambitious space mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) which aims to map the observable Universe and investigate mysterious dark energy and dark matter. The satellite will study galaxies that are at different distances from Earth using a 1.2m diameter telescope that carries two instruments: the Visible Light Observing Imager (VIS) and the Near Infrared Spectro-Imager (NISP). We are proud to have been selected as the supplier of high reliability passive components for this crucial mission. Our magnetic components (CMC 15, SESI inductor 9.1, 15 & 22) and capacitors have (PM 948S, PM 94S, DBIT X3S) been carefully designed and manufactured to meet the extreme requirements of space (ESA QPL) and play a key role in the success of the Euclid mission (we are inside PCDU = Power conditioning distribution unit). Our expertise and our experience in the design and manufacture of custom-made passive electronic components for the space sector, allow us to meet the most stringent requirements of the aerospace industry. We are determined to maintain our position as a trusted supplier for renowned space missions. Image crédit : ESA/C. Carreau,CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO View the press release
