EXXELIA, A EUROPEAN SOURCE OF HIGH Q FACTOR DIELECTRIC RESONATORS
Exxelia presents its new dielectric resonator, the E7000 series. The series has been designed for high-end filters where Q factor is critical, especially in space or military applications.
Operating frequencies in wireless communications have shifted towards high frequency band and thus frequencies higher than 1 Ghz are now commonly utilized. In addition, the microwave frequency spectrum becoming severely crowded and sub-divided into many different frequency bands, designers are systematically looking for resonators giving them a narrow bandwidth with smaller size.
Dielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia Temex, daughter company of Exxelia Group, has developed with support of ESA and CNES, a new high-end dielectric material, E7000 series, designed for high-end filters where high Q factor is requested.
E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. E7000 provides high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ.
Typical applications: Satellite multiplexing filter devices, radio links for communication systems (LMDS),
Introduction of DSCC 93026 qualified Wet Tantalum Capacitors
Exxelia’s range of wet tantalum capacitors WT84 is now fully qualified to DSCC 93026 drawing for voltages from 25V up to 125V. Available in all case sizes (T1, T2, T3, T4) the family is housed in a hermetically sealed tantalum case and is designed to withstand the most stringent environmental constraints. Thanks to the continuous improvements conducted in the manufacturing processes combined with the high purity tantalum powder used by Exxelia, DSCC 93026 provides the highest capacitance per unit volume. In addition, compared to conventional wet tantalum capacitors, DSCC 93026 features much lower ESR and higher ripple current. DSCC 93026 is qualified for capacitance values range from 10µF up to 1800µF at voltages from 25V up to 125V, and with operating temperatures of -55°C to 125°C. The series is ideal for use in high-reliability defense, avionics, radars and power supply applications requiring high capacitance or high energy storage. DSCC 93026 is available now for order.
Magnetic Components based on Adaptive CCM Technology at APEC – Booth# 653 –
Exxelia will exhibit the CCM series during the Applied Power Electronics Conference at Exxelia’s booth #623 from March 27-30, 2017 in Tampa, FL. 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. Exxelia can evaluate losses and related temperature rise thanks to an in-depth knowledge of CCM technology. Thermal resistance data is available for each package size. Exxelia can also manufacture products in CCM technology according to MIL-STD-981.
