Exxelia is known for the quality and reliability of its products, making it a popular choice for space missions.

Exxelia components are used in many embedded systems on board the JUICE mission. Selected components include capacitors (High Voltage C Series X7R & TCK Series X7R, CEC Series NP0, Polyester PET PM 948) and magnetics (Inductors MPCI and SESI, Common mode choke CMC and specific transformers). All have been carefully designed and tested to withstand the extreme conditions of space.

Exxelia has been working closely on this project for more than 10 years, notably on the GALA (GAnymede Laser Altimeter) and MAJIS (Moon and Jupiter Imaging Spectrometer) instruments.

Conditions in space are extreme, with high levels of radiation, drastic temperature variations, and intense vibrations. Exxelia components have been designed to withstand these conditions, providing consistent and reliable performance throughout the mission, proven by a qualification testing that mimics what they will be seeing during their approximately 15 years of service.

The JUICE mission is an ambitious mission aimed at studying Jupiter and three of its largest moons, Callisto, Ganymede, and Europa, with the goal of better understanding the origin and evolution of planetary systems. Exxelia's components will play a key role in collecting vital scientific data, particularly for measuring magnetic fields in the vicinity of these moons.

Strong of its 40+ years’ experience in space, Exxelia offers the most complete space qualified passive components portfolio.
