Exxelia to showcase advanced microwave capacitors and ferrites at IMS Microwave Week 2024

10 June 2024

High-reliability electronic components designer and manufacturer Exxelia is proud to announce its participation at IMS Microwave Week 2024 in Washington, D.C., from June 16 to 21, 2024. At booth 2108, Exxelia will highlight its main radio frequency (RF)/microwave capacitor ranges: Super HiQ and High-Power High-Q CP/CL series and also its innovative range of microwave ferrites, including a pre-launch of a highly anticipated High-Epsilon microwave ferrite material.

Exxelia will be showcasing their Super High-Q series of RF ceramic capacitors. These capacitors feature ultra-low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and can operate at voltages up to 1,500 V. They are available in sizes ranging from 0402 to 1210, offering capacitance values from 0.1 pF to 1 000 pF. They are ideal for advanced RF applications such as power amplifiers, mixers, filters and matching networks.Source: ExxeliaSource: Exxelia

The advanced High-Power High-Q series, designed for lower frequency applications with power handling up to 7,200 V and capacitance value up to 10 nF, will also be showcased. These capacitors are available in NPO and P90 dielectrics, offering exceptional performance with low ESR and electronic system-level design (ESL), making them ideal for the most demanding application. The CP (P90) and CL (NP0) series are ideal for defense communication (VHF/UHF), medical MR body coils, and RF generators for plasma, semiconductor manufacturing and extreme ultraviolet (EuV) lithography.

Exxelia will also exhibit its comprehensive range of materials and tuning components, with a special focus on its cutting-edge microwave ferrite products. These advanced components are engineered to meet the rigorous demands of modern microwave applications, providing unparalleled performance and reliability.

As a highlight of its presence at IMS Microwave Week, Exxelia will be pre-launching a new high-epsilon microwave ferrite, which features a permittivity of 21 and is available in two versions (YK21 and DK21) to address all power applications. It represents a significant advancement in ferrite technology, engineered to enhance the performance of high-frequency radar systems, especially in Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar applications. This new component delivers exceptional magnetic properties and stability, crucial for the optimal performance of isolator and circulator devices.

Key features and benefits of the new High-Epsilon ferrite YK21 and DK21:
• High permittivity: 21
• Two power levels available: ∆Hk = 4.5 and ∆Hk = 8.5
• Wide range of Ms: 1,250 to 1,900 Gauss
• Frequency applications up to X band (12 GHz).
• Combination with Exxelia dielectric range for Ferrite Dielectric Assembly (FDA)
• Short lead-time of 8 to 10 weeks for evaluation.
