No more compromises between stability and capacitance! The brand new C48X material combines most advantages of NPO and X7R dielectrics, enabling the new high power and high frequency ceramic capacitor range to provide great stability in voltage, high capacitance, great dissipation factor and fast charge/discharge.

Miniaturization is a driving need for future electronics pieces of equipment. This evolution, true whatever the application, leads Exxelia Technologies (ex-Eurofarad) to develop a brand new high voltage ceramic capacitors range based on a new dielectric material named C48X, combining most of the 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. Thus capacitors with C48X dielectric appear to be ideally suited for power applications where heat dissipation may be detrimental to performances and reliability.
Exxelia Technologies’ capacitors based on the C48X material have been developed from 200V to 5kV with chip sizes ranging from 1812 to 16080, allowing a maximum capacitance value of 10μF 200V (10 times more than with an NPO ceramic). The standard stacked versions are proposed with a maximum capacitance value of 47μF 200V.

Regarding the mounting of these capacitors, many configurations are possible to be compatible either with surface mounting or through-hole mounting. All these versions can be suitable for space use and can be designed in order to avoid any whisker growth risk (10% min lead in all tin-lead alloys used). The introduction of the C48X range in the EPPL (European Space Agency Preferred Parts List) for space is in progress for sizes 0603 to 6560 from 100V to 1kV up to size 1210 and up to 5kV until the size 6560).
Some typical applications:
• 400Hz Aircraft
• Defense
• Space
• Precision/filtering capacitance in thermally challenged environment for AC or DC voltage

New entity, Exxelia Magnetics

This is an internal merger of two innovative, professional and complementary companies both designer and manufacturer of high-end would magnetic components, which have a history of successfully working together for a year. Exxelia Magnetics will have greater scale, breadth and capabilities to compete more effectively in the global marketplace. Exxelia Microspire Microspire was founded in 1978 and became part of Exxelia Group in 2008. Exxelia Microspire has been designing, developing and manufacturing wound components for over 35 years: transformers and inductors, electro-magnets, rotors and stators. Exxelia Microspire has several manufacturing sites, notably newly located low production cost facilities offering competitive solutions. Exxelia Microspire’s know-how includes standard winding technologies: linear (in RM, ETD, EP, EFD, ER, EQ and other formats) and toroid. For harsh environment applications with shock, vibration, and high temperature issues, Microspire offers innovative specific technologies including SESI, TT and CCM. Exxelia Microspire’s qualified technologies, clearly defined design rules and industrial organization provide the platform on which it is able to offer its customers optimal solutions. Exxelia N'Ergy Exxelia N’Ergy (ex N’Ergy) was acquired in 2015 by Exxelia Group.  Exxelia N’Ergy designs and manufactures passive specific electromagnetic components in small and medium range: Transformers, Chokes, Sensors (tachometer, gyros, …), Electromagnets.
