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

Nouveau diélectrique céramique haute tension, haute stabilité

La miniaturisation des systèmes électroniques est devenue un enjeu majeur et touche tous les domaines d’application. Afin de répondre à cette tendance, Exxelia Technologies (ex-Eurofarad) a développé une gamme de condensateurs céramique haute tension basée sur un tout nouveau matériau diélectrique (C48X) combinant tous les avantages des produits X7R et NPO/C0G. En effet, le C48X permet d’obtenir les mêmes valeurs de capacité sous tension que le X7R, avec l’avantage indéniable d’avoir un facteur de dissipation extrêmement faible (moins de 5.10-4). De plus, le C48X supporte un dV/dT très élevé jusqu’à 10kV/μs, faisant de ce matériau une solution de choix pour les applications nécessitant une charge/décharge ultra rapide ou pour des systèmes d’allumage. Les condensateurs C48X sont également parfaitement adaptés aux applications de puissance où la dissipation de chaleur peut être préjudiciable aux performances et à la fiabilité. Les condensateurs C48X du groupe Exxelia ont été développés des tailles 1812 à 16080 pour des tensions allant de 200 à 5000V, avec une capacité maximale de 10μF à 200V (10 fois supérieure par rapport à la capacité obtenue avec une céramique NPO). Les produits stackés sont proposés avec une capacité maximale de 47μF à 200V. Plusieurs solutions de report existent sur cette nouvelle gamme, compatible aussi bien avec un montage en surface qu’avec un report sur circuit à trous traversants. Toutes ces versions sont adaptées aux usages spatiaux et peuvent être conçues pour éviter le risque de whiskers (alliage étain-plomb à 10% de plomb mini). La gamme C48X est en cours d’introduction en EPPL ESA pour les tailles 0603 à 6560 de 100V à 1kV jusqu’à la taille 1210 et jusqu’à 5kV pour les tailles supérieures. Quelques applications usuelles : • Alimentations à 400Hz, • Defense • Spatial • Filtrage AC ou DC en environnement thermique

Ultra low ESR, high RF power and high self-resonant frequency The new NHB series is a complete range of MLCC based on NPO dielectric material providing a very high Self Resonant Frequency and limiting the parasite Parallel Resonant Frequencies. The series is available in 1111 size with capacitance ranging from 0. 3pF to 100pF. NHB series offers excellent performance for RF power applications at high temperature up to 175°C and at 500 VDC. The lowest ESR is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary of new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series particularly fits for high power and high frequency applications such as: cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, point to point / multipoint radios and broadcasting equipment.     Felsic HV, long lifetime and high voltage screw terminal The Felsic HV family of aluminum electrolytic screw terminal capacitors provides great performances in energy density and ultra-long lifetime. For example products can withstand 8 000 hours at 105°C under high values of current which makes them the perfect choice to overcome railway constraints. The family also has one of the lowest ESR for aluminum capacitors, less than 10m0hms in most cases. Products are available for voltages from 160 to 450 Vdc, and offer capacitance values from 1500μF up to 47 000μF. Thus the family is a good compromise between reliability and compacity, with for example 47 000μF @ 160V in a 90x200mm volume.     Cost-effective common-mode chokes qualified for aerospace Designed and qualified for aerospace, the TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal and vertical mounting. TCM common-mode chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 to 47mH under rated currents from 0.3A to 4A, and thoroughly tested by a dielectric withstanding strength at 1500VAC. Their excellent thermal properties allow the TCMs to operate without a hitch from -55°C up to +125°C, which, combined to the high mechanical resistance of the chosen materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) make those products the perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries.       Two new ranges of Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors qualified for space Ranges PM907S and PM948S of Film capacitors obtained the QPL certification from the European Space Components Coordination (ESCC). PM907S and PM948S part of the PM series, are full ranges of Metallized 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 with a voltages from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both ranges can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current. Products are typically being used in SMPS (Switch Mode Poser Suppliers) and BUS filtering.   A new range of high capacitance wet tantalum capacitors The new wet tantalum WT83 capacitors series is based on the CLR93 MIL specification but with double the capacitance. For instance, WT83 offers 1000µf 100V in a D size case. That is a pass for impactful miniaturization of existing designs by playing on both size, by reducing the PCB footprint, and weight. Besides, thanks to their hermetically sealed package, the WT83 series can withstand high vibrations and shock levels (50g and 100g respectively) which makes them the solution of choice for Aviation, Space and Defense.
