HIGH VOLTAGE CERAMIC CAPACITORS BASED ON BRAND NEW DIELECTRIC MATERIAL
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 dissipation factor and fast charge/discharge.
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).
Gammes de condensateurs HiQ à l'EuMW
Exxelia Temex will be exhibiting at European Microwave Week 2016 through its mother group Exxelia. Showcased on the booth #237 will be all the company’s solutions intended for applications requiring low loss in equivalent series resistance (ESR) and high Q factor for specified DC or RF voltage, including Classic HiQ, Super HiQ and NHB series. Classic HiQ series is a range of RF ceramic capacitors providing low ESR and Ultra High-Q. The high-density ceramic construction provides a hermetic package and the highest working voltage on the market; up to 1500V and RF currents. Available in 0505 and 1111 sizes with capacitance values from 0.1pF up to 1000pF, the Classic HiQ series is perfectly adapted for applications such as: linear RF power amplifiers (LPA), mixers, filter networks, timing circuits, delay lines, oscillators, etc. Super HiQ series offers excellent performance in critical high RF power applications requiring consistent and reliable operation. The range has been engineered in all standard EIA sizes to provide constant capacitance over voltage, temperature and aging. It is also available in RF specific sizes (0402, 0603, 0805, 1206, 1210). The ultra-stable Super HiQ series offers Ultra-low ESR and Ultra HiQ with capacitance values from 0.2pF up to 1000pF. In addition, it enables superior high-voltage handling with working voltage up to 1500V. This series is particularly fit for cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, RF generators applications. Typical circuit applications: filters networks, matching networks, tuning, coupling and DC blocking. 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, available in 1111size 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 (Equivalent Series Resistance) is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series is particularly fit for high power and high frequency applications such as: cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, point to point / multipoint radios and broadcasting equipment. Typical circuit applications: impedance matching, bypass, feedback, tuning, coupling and DC blocking. All capacitors are packaged either as bulk chips or with tape or reel. All components are RoHS compliant and available with magnetic and non-magnetic terminations. They also provide as a good alternative for MIL-PRF-55681 / CDR capacitors. European Military, space grades and custom made capacitors are also available on request.
Nouvelle gamme qualifiée DSCC 93026 de condensateurs au tantale
La gamme Exxelia de condensateurs au tantale gélifiés WT84 est désormais qualifiée DSCC (réf. DSCC 93026). Conçus avec un boîtier au tantale cylindrique et hermétique, les DSCC 93026 sont proposés dans des tailles de boîtier standard de T1 à T4, avec terminaisons axiales. Grâce à l’utilisation d’une poudre au tantale d’une grande pureté les DSCC 93026 offrent la capacité par unité de volume la plus élevée du marché. Comparés à des condensateurs au tantale gélifiés classiques, les DSCC 93026 présentent un ESR nettement plus faible et un courant d’ondulation plus élevé. Les DSCC 93026 sont qualifiés pour des tensions de 25V à 125V, avec des valeurs de capacité comprises entre 1800 μF @25V and 10 μF @125V. La série DSCC 93026 offre une grande capacité de stockage d’énergie sur une plage de température de fonctionnement étendue (-55°C à 125°C). C'est une gamme destinée aux applications de défense, avionique et radars.
