Exxelia Releases Miniature Micro-Layer Capacitors with New Technology

New MML Film Capacitor Series supplies Ultra-High Energy Density with Reduced Size and Weight

NORTHVALE, New Jersey, USA – New Yorker Electronics has announced the availability of the new Exxelia Miniature Micro-Layer (MML) film capacitors, a product Exxelia calls a breakthrough technology that allows tremendous size and weight reduction thanks to its high energy density. According to Exxelia, the new MML line boasts an unparalleled energy density of 400 J/dm3. It allows for a substantial size/weight reduction compared to traditional Polypropylene or Polyester dielectrics, with an increased operating temperature up to 140°C and transient voltage protection.

Exxelia MML capacitors therefore offer a large flexibility in design by easily allowing low profile configurations. Several studies have been conducted on actual cases of controls and DC-Links functions for aircraft applications. All have shown about 50-percent reduction in size and weight compared to other film technologies. The comparative picture with MLCC is even more flattering, as it demonstrates between 70% to 90% reduction in weight, while showing no capacitance derating with voltage applied and a low drift < 5% through the temperature range. Applications using clusters of stacked MLCCs can now be replaced by a single MML unit of similar size, with all the increased reliability that film dielectric offers.

With such remarkable properties, Exxelia’s new MML capacitors are perfectly suitable for power supplies, DC-links, AC/DC/AC power converters, charge/discharge or power generation functions of commercial/military aircraft, satellite platforms and payloads, launchers, defibrillators, downhole tools and any applications of confined electronics.

Features & Benefits:

  • Up to 50% size reduction vs other film technologies
  • Lightweight : 80 to 90% lighter than ceramic
  • No capacitance derating in voltage
  • Capacitance from 1μF to 1000μF
  • Voltages from 50V to 1000V
  • Operating Temperature -55°C to +140°C
  • Highly customizable

Applications:

  • Commercial/Military Aircraft
  • Satellite Platforms and Payloads
  • Launchers
  • Defibrillators
  • Downhole Tools

Samples are readily available from New Yorker Electronics upon request. New Yorker Electronics supplies Exxelia Film, Mica, Tantalum, Aluminum Electrolytics and Ceramic Capacitors as well as its EMI/RFI Filters, Magnetics, Position Sensors, Slip Rings and Rotary Joints.
