In times of warfare, the reliability of military weapons is absolutely critical to the success of a mission. For nearly a decade, military contractors have leveraged Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom, high voltage resistors and dividers to ensure product performance in a variety of military applications, including the FGM-148 Javelin—the most-deployed anti-tank missile in the world.
In a variety of military applications, including the FGM-148 Javelin—the most-deployed anti-tank missile in the world.“Missiles are exposed to extreme climate conditions and often sit idle—sometimes for several years—before they are launched. When that time comes, it is essential for those missiles to perform as expected,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “Exxelia Ohmcraft custom resistors are designed to support the rigorous precision and reliability specifications required by military suppliers to withstand the harsh environmental conditions, ensuring that the missile remains fully operational under all circumstances.
Exxelia Ohmcraft performs a full range of military lot acceptance testing (LAT) on resistors as necessary, and works closely with military contractors to meet the design requirements for each particular application. In the case of the FGM-148 Javelin, a small, lightweight form factor was imperative to keep the missiles as lightweight and portable as possible.
Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.

Low Voltage 0402 MLCCs now in ESA QPL
Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the Qualified Part List (QPL) status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The case size 0402 QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. Dielectrics are based either in the very stable NPO (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. These ranges of versatile chip capacitors are intended for use in a wide variety of aerospace applications requiring the highest level of reliability: satellites, launch vehicles, payloads, etc. CEC19 features: - very stable NPO dielectric - maximum capacitance values: 330pF in 10V, 120pF in 16V and 100pF in 25V, - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C CNC19 features: - high capacitance X7R dielectric - high capacitance rating values: from 68pF to 12nF in 10V, 8.2nF in 16V and 5.6nF in 25V - large operating temperatures: -55°C to 125°C
