Proud to be on Mars !
Two Exxelia film capacitors on-board the InSight spacecraft
The NASA InSight spacecraft landed on Mars on November 26, 2018 with two Exxelia film capacitors onboard. Designed and manufactured in France, these high precision capcitors are mounted on the French sismometer.
EXXELIA, A EUROPEAN SOURCE OF HIGH Q FACTOR DIELECTRIC RESONATORS
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),
