PARIS, France and HONEOYE FALLS, NY, USA, January 6th, 2020 – Exxelia, a leading designer and manufacturer of High-Rel passive components and sub-systems dedicated to severe environments, announced that it has completed, on Dec 23rd, 2019, the acquisition of Micropen Technologies Corporation. Micropen is a well-established designer and manufacturer of high technology resistors, known under the Ohmcraft® brand, serving the medical, defense, space and industrial markets. Micropen also manufactures with the same technology unique special sensors dedicated to the medical and security markets.

Established in 1982 in Honeoye Falls, NY, Micropen Technologies has developed a unique process to print critical functional materials, such as conductive electrodes, precious metals, on various planar or 3D substrates, such as ceramic, plastic and others. This patented system is the core technology for the design and manufacture of Ohmcraft® complete line of resistors as well as some of the world’s most innovative monitoring & stimulating medical sensors.

“We are very excited to welcome Micropen’s talented, engaged and committed team, and very proud to add Micropen’s unique technology under our already extensive portfolio of highly-engineered passive components and sensors. Thanks to this unrivaled process, Exxelia gains a foothold in the high-rel resistors world and enhances its ability to serve as a key product solution provider to customers with mission-critical applications”, said Paul Maisonnier, Chief Executive Officer of Exxelia.

According to Ed Petrazzolo, President & Chief Executive Officer of Micropen Technologies, “Micropen is delighted to now be a part of Exxelia's growth and expanded product offerings. The commonalities between our two companies in culture, engineering, technology and manufacturing excellence are outstanding and we are excited by the global reach that Exxelia offers to our Ohmcraft resistors and Micropen printing capabilities”.

Nouveau diélectrique céramique haute tension, haute stabilité

La miniaturisation des systèmes électroniques est devenue un enjeu majeur et touche tous les domaines d’application. Afin de répondre à cette tendance, Exxelia Technologies (ex-Eurofarad) a développé une gamme de condensateurs céramique haute tension basée sur un tout nouveau matériau diélectrique (C48X) combinant tous les avantages des produits X7R et NPO/C0G. En effet, le C48X permet d’obtenir les mêmes valeurs de capacité sous tension que le X7R, avec l’avantage indéniable d’avoir un facteur de dissipation extrêmement faible (moins de 5.10-4). De plus, le C48X supporte un dV/dT très élevé jusqu’à 10kV/μs, faisant de ce matériau une solution de choix pour les applications nécessitant une charge/décharge ultra rapide ou pour des systèmes d’allumage. Les condensateurs C48X sont également parfaitement adaptés aux applications de puissance où la dissipation de chaleur peut être préjudiciable aux performances et à la fiabilité. Les condensateurs C48X du groupe Exxelia ont été développés des tailles 1812 à 16080 pour des tensions allant de 200 à 5000V, avec une capacité maximale de 10μF à 200V (10 fois supérieure par rapport à la capacité obtenue avec une céramique NPO). Les produits stackés sont proposés avec une capacité maximale de 47μF à 200V. Plusieurs solutions de report existent sur cette nouvelle gamme, compatible aussi bien avec un montage en surface qu’avec un report sur circuit à trous traversants. Toutes ces versions sont adaptées aux usages spatiaux et peuvent être conçues pour éviter le risque de whiskers (alliage étain-plomb à 10% de plomb mini). La gamme C48X est en cours d’introduction en EPPL ESA pour les tailles 0603 à 6560 de 100V à 1kV jusqu’à la taille 1210 et jusqu’à 5kV pour les tailles supérieures. Quelques applications usuelles : • Alimentations à 400Hz, • Defense • Spatial • Filtrage AC ou DC en environnement thermique
