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:

Larger Batches of High Q-Factor Dielectric Resonators
Dielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia with the support of ESA and CNES developed the E7000 series that provides a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q-factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. E7000 features the high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range from 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ. Being one of the few manufacturers producing its own raw materials, Exxelia perfectly masters the production of dielectric resonators. Induced by the success of this new range, the company is now able to provide larger batches (up to 20kg of powder) of its E7000 series while keeping the exact same product properties, resulting in opportunities for cost-effective volume fabrication. Typical applications for the E7000 series: Satellite multiplexing filter devices, radio links for communication systems (LMDS), military radars.
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 470µf 100V in a D size, whereas ST79 only gives 220µF in the same other conditions).
