100% invar tuning screws with self-locking system 
Invar-36 is a unique Iron-Nickel alloy (64 % Fe / 36 % Ni) sought-after for its very low coefficient of thermal expansion. With 1.1 ppm. K–1 between 0°C and 100°C, Invar-36 is about 17 times more stable than Brass which is the most traditional and common alloy Tuning Elements are made of. The working temperature range in Space is so wide that this property becomes essential for a reliable and stable cavity filter tuning. Self-locking system is a technology commonly used on Tuning Element made of Brass or other soft “easy-to-machine” alloys but is innovative and pretty advanced when applied to hard and tough Invar 36. The design consists of two threaded segments separated by two parallel slots. After cutting both parallel slots, the rotor is compressed in its length in order to create a plastic deformation. Thus, an offset is induced between the two threaded segments which generates a constant tensile stress in the rotor from the moment threaded segments are screwed.

High power and high frequency ceramics with the new C48X dielectric

Range of high voltage ceramic capacitors based on brand new dielectric material C48X, combining most advantages of NPO and X7R dielectrics. Compared to X7R material, C48X dielectric allows to get the same capacitance values under working voltage with the unrivaled advantage of a very low dissipation factor (less than 5.10–4). Besides, it can also withstand very high dV/dt, up to 10kV/μs, which makes it the solution of choice for pulse and fast charge/discharge applications or firing units. Thus capacitors with C48X dielectric appear to be ideally suited for power applications where heat dissipation may be detrimental to performances and reliability.

Magnetic components based on adaptive CCM technology

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 CCM technology adapts to most every need, even the harshest environments, including VIGON® resistance. 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. 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. 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.

Film capacitor series keeps its cool even at 150°C

The Exxelia Dearborn 880P series of metalised Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Film Capacitors is designed to keep cool when things get hot. With an operating temperature range of -55 to +150°C, they experience no derating for DC operations and none in AC operations up to +125°C. This enables them to function at full capacity in extreme heat applications. The ability to operate at such high temperatures can eliminate the need for a cooling system within the design, thus reducing overall design time, weight and space. PPS is a high-temperature, low-loss dielectric film used in the 880P series of wrap-and-fill capacitors. This allows them to feature superior electrical characteristics over an extremely wide temperature range and maintain excellent capacitance stability in one rugged, lightweight package. It performs consistently well in commercial applications such as in power supplies and in more demanding applications, such as in avionics, on a congested control or instrumentation panel. The series features a capacitance range of 0.0047 to 10.0µF and voltage ratings from 50 to 400VDC with precision tolerances as low as ±¼% through ±10% yielding greater accuracy of capacitance. It is also a customisable unit with voltage maximums of 700 – 800VDC at 125°C maximum (higher voltages are available at reduced capacitance). Made in the USA, the units are highly durable and capable of withstanding a five-pound pull force on lead axis. They are non-polar and demonstrate low loss factor, good voltage breakdown strength and high insulation resistance (low leak current) – and are completely stable over normal temperatures, voltages and frequency ranges. These characteristics allow the 880P series capacitors to deliver high performance in a variety of applications such as DC timing circuits, low- to high-frequency AC applications, and pulse or energy discharge uses. Additionally, the package has axial leads with moisture-resistant, flame-retardant epoxy end seals and an outer tape covering for maximum performance.

SPACE & MILITARY GRADE PASSIVES AT CMSE - BOOTH # B13 -

CMSE is one of the most recognized conference dedicated to the use of component in military and space systems. As a key supplier of highly reliable passive components, Exxelia will be displaying in booth B13, a wide variety of military and space-qualified capacitors (ceramic, tantalum, film, electrolytic aluminum), wound magnetics solutions and EMI/RFI filters. Two new ranges of MIL-qualified tantalum capacitors: MIL39006/22 & MIL39006/25  The recently introduced ranges of MIL-qualified tantalum capacitors will be showcased on the company booth (B13). MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types feature hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads are available in T1, T2 T3 and T4 cases with extended capacitance and voltage ratings. MIL 39006/22 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 delivers from 680µF @ 25V to 82 µF @ 125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with a large operating temperature range of -55°C - +125°C and H vibrations and shocks resistance. Alsic 20G, Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors with large operating temperatures  Alsic 20G is a range of radial leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors for typical use in military and aerospace high frequency switch-mode power supplies requiring advanced performance under all operating conditions. Alsic 20G operational rated life is 8,000 hours at rated voltage and 105°C, and provides from 330µF @ 500V to 80 000μF @16V. The range features ruggedized design with insulating aluminum case and tin coated leads. With capacitance stability at high temperature, low inductance and impedance, competitive ESR and high ripple current, these capacitors are perfectly adapted for mission-critical applications.  C48X dielectric: NPO and X7R advantages combined Under working voltage, C48X dielectric provides equivalent capacitance values to an X7R material with the advantage of a very low dissipation factor (less than 5.10-4). It can also withstand very high dV/dt, up to 10kV/µs which makes it perfect for pulse and charge/discharge applications for firing units. Exxelia’s C48X capacitors, available from 200V to 5kV with EIA sizes from 1812 to 16080, are ideally suited for power applications where heat dissipation may be detrimental to performances and reliability, such as 400Hz Aircraft, Ignition systems, and Space, or as Precision/filtering capacitance in thermally challenged environment for AC or DC voltage.
