Exxelia empowers Aditya-L1 & Chandrayaan 3's successful launch with cutting-edge components
In a remarkable achievement for space exploration, the successful launch of Aditya-L1 spacecraft & Chandrayaan 3 marks a significant milestone for India's space program. This mission, powered by cutting-edge technology and precision engineering, is not only a testament to human innovation but also s...
As a key supplier of capacitors, EMI Filters, and magnetics for Chandrayaan 3, Exxelia has contributed to the mission's success in ways that go beyond the skies.
"We are honored to have been a part of the supplier base for this remarkable spacecraft and to have been part of this historic mission. Our ability to supply these products reflects the unique and talented Team Members we are fortunate to lead at our companies, along with the high-quality components our companies have developed over time" - Paul Maisonnier, Exxelia's CEO
Exxelia's capacitors are at the heart of Chandrayaan 3's electronics systems, ensuring stable and reliable power distribution throughout its journey. Operating in the extreme conditions of space, these capacitors exhibit exceptional performance, with the ability to withstand radiation, temperature fluctuations, and mechanical stress. As the spacecraft navigates its way to the lunar surface, Exxelia's capacitors provide the energy storage needed to drive critical systems.
EMI Filters (EMI Filters SFP & SFC ):
EMI Filters from Exxelia bring a new dimension of efficiency and durability to Chandrayaan 3's onboard electronics. With their remarkable switching speed and low power consumption, Exxelia's EMI Filters enable seamless data processing and communication, even in the challenging environment of space. The reliability of EMI Filters ensures that the spacecraft can continue to function optimally, collecting and transmitting valuable data back to earth.
Exxelia's magnetics form an integral part of Chandrayaan 3's navigation and guidance systems. These components provide precise control over the spacecraft's orientation and trajectory adjustments. As the spacecraft maneuvers through space, Exxelia's magnetics contribute to maintaining its correct orientation, enabling Chandrayaan 3 to stay on course as it embarks on its lunar journey.
The launch of the Aditya satellite marks a significant advancement in space exploration. This satellite is equipped with passive electronic components from Exxelia. What makes these components particularly remarkable is their ability to withstand the extremely high temperatures of the space environment.
Aditya-L1 (from Sanskrit: Aditya, "Sun") is a coronagraphy spacecraft to study the solar atmosphere, designed and developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and various other Indian research institutes.

ESA QPL Film Capacitors PM907S and PM948S are full series of Polyester Film Capacitors. PM907S products are suitable for voltages from 50V up to 1250V and offer capacitance values from 82nF up to 180μF. PM948S can be used from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both series can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current. Film capacitor Series PM907S and PM948S are ESA QPL certified according to the ESCC Detail Specification No. 3006/025 and 3006/026 Smallest ESA QPL Ceramic Capacitor of the Market Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the ESA Qualified Part List status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The 0402 size QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. They are available either in the very stable NPO dielectric (type 1) or the high capacitance X7R (type 2). CEC and CNC series combine high capacitance values with high thermal and voltage stability. Versions with polymer terminations are also QPL-certified. Miniature EMI filters for space application Exxelia’s gold-plated glass-sealed EMI filters SFC030 is the solution of choice to protect several embedded power supplies and data lines. These small and reliable filters are available up to 5A @ 200V and 22nF. Available in a Kovar package, the better alternative to steel for enhanced temperature cycling resistance, all Exxelia’s EMI filters for space are ESA qualified according to ESCC 3008. Thanks to this extensive experience in stringent ESA testing, Exxelia is able to adapt the tests of any filter according to any need (example: SMD 20A chip, 0pF capacitor value for an arrays of filters).
