Paris, France - August 29th 2019 – Exxelia, a leading global designer and manufacturer of highly engineered passive components and electromechanical solutions, celebrates the 10-year anniversary of its brand by confirming its market growth.
The group Exxelia was born from the merge of five long-established companies with complementary activities and know-how (Eurofarad, Firadec, Sic Safco, Microspire and Astema). Today, Exxelia counts thirteen manufacturing sites located in France, the United States, Vietnam and Morocco.
Embedded into the most advanced commercial aircrafts, the latest generation of fighter jets, onboard the most prestigious space exploration missions such as ChangE4 and Insight, Exxelia products have always been the trusted choice where the environment is harsh and reliability a must.
Paul Maisonnier, CEO of Exxelia says: “Over the past 10 years, Exxelia has double its revenue thanks to organic growth and strategic acquisitions. We are proud to be recognized as a leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom solutions with a worldwide reputation for performance and quality.”
Looking ahead, Exxelia focuses on expanding its international presence to become the pure player world leader of complex passive components for high reliability applications.

NEW INVAR TUNING ELEMENTS WITH SELF-LOCKING SYSTEM
Working frequencies in Space applications are shifting to Ka, Ku or even Q band, while cavity filters are undergoing the general trend towards miniaturization: this context calls for a much more precise and stable tuning element now offered by Exxelia Temex, daughter company of Exxelia, through their last innovative and unrivalled solution to incorporate a self-locking system into their Invar Tuning Elements. 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.

ESA QPL Film Capacitors PM907S and PM948S are full series of Polyester Film Capacitors. PM907S products are suitable for voltages from 50V up to 1250V and offer capacitance values from 82nF up to 180μF. PM948S can be used from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both series can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current. Film capacitor Series PM907S and PM948S are ESA QPL certified according to the ESCC Detail Specification No. 3006/025 and 3006/026 Smallest ESA QPL Ceramic Capacitor of the Market Exxelia ranges of low voltage MLCC for surface mounting, CEC19 and CNC19, have achieved the ESA Qualified Part List status under the criteria of the European Space Component Coordination’s (ESCC) 3009/042 and 3009/043 respectively. The 0402 size QPL-qualified parts are available from 10V to 25V, enabling substantial miniaturization and cost-saving. They are available either in the very stable NPO dielectric (type 1) or the high capacitance X7R (type 2). CEC and CNC series combine high capacitance values with high thermal and voltage stability. Versions with polymer terminations are also QPL-certified. Miniature EMI filters for space application Exxelia’s gold-plated glass-sealed EMI filters SFC030 is the solution of choice to protect several embedded power supplies and data lines. These small and reliable filters are available up to 5A @ 200V and 22nF. Available in a Kovar package, the better alternative to steel for enhanced temperature cycling resistance, all Exxelia’s EMI filters for space are ESA qualified according to ESCC 3008. Thanks to this extensive experience in stringent ESA testing, Exxelia is able to adapt the tests of any filter according to any need (example: SMD 20A chip, 0pF capacitor value for an arrays of filters).
