Leveraging common fabrication processes to encapsulate transformers.
Like embedded resistors and capacitors, embedded magnetics provide a means for reducing system size and cost. Transformers and inductors used in power and telecommunication applications are often the more expensive devices in a system design. When realizing a power converter or RF module, cost and size reductions can be realized by combining the magnetics and PCB functions. This article provides an overview of embedded magnetics design and construction.
