Planar TransformersPlanar Transformers - Planar transformers are steadily replacing the need for traditional wire-wound transformers in many industries. Electric vehicles, solar inverters, wind power, aviation, healthcare, and industrial manufacturing are just some of the areas where this technology is gaining ground. While the windings of wire-wound transformers are used with round wire, the planar’s windings are built by utilizing flat copper layers (PCBs) or plated flat copper windings (lead frames) to create a laminate-style winding construction.  More...
