New entity, Exxelia Magnetics
Exxelia announces the fusion of its two companies, Exxelia Microspire and Exxelia N’Ergy, to create a single company 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.
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 (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:

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 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. Cost-effective Common-mode Chokes Qualified for Aerospace Exxelia designed this extensive and cost-effective range to be an easy commercial (COTS) solution for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications. The TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal or vertical mounting. TCM chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 mH to 47 mH under rated currents from 0.3 to 4.0 A. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Excellent thermal properties allow the series to operate from -55° C to +125° C. The high mechanical performance of the component materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) makes TCM a perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries.
WT83 - High Capacitance wet tantalum
Capacitance values have been strongly increased with Exxelia's new range of tantalum capacitors: WT83 is an extension of the ST79 families (according to CLR93 MIL values) but with double the capacitance. That is a pass for impactful miniaturization of existing designs by playing on both size and weight (for instance, WT83 offers 1000µf 100V in a D size, whereas ST79 only gives 470µF in the same other conditions).
