LTCC Products Overview
The old wire-wound transformer technology remained exactly the same, and not because it was the best technology, but because no one had a better idea -until now.
NASCENTechnology has developed a new Low-Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (LTCC) technique that has dramatically changed transformer technology and will revolutionize the transportation, medical, aerospace, and petroleum industries.
You can see the difference. And you can imagine the applications.
Size, Reliability & Temperature
The new NASCENTechnology LTCC transformer is flat and thin, a fraction of the size of the old Transformers. The LTCC transformer, because of its production process, can handle sweltering temperatures. And the LTCC transformer embeds the coil windings within one solid unit - a miniature monolith. As a result, they are far more reliable, and able to withstand extreme shock and vibration.
NASCENTechnology transformers are made from a process that eliminates plastic bobbins, fine magnetic wire, and brittle ferrite cores. Our multilayered ceramic transformers are produced using Low-Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (LTCC) techniques, in which the transformer structures are co-fired at temperatures up to 950° C. Since our transformers have windings embedded within their magnetic core structure, they can handle extremely high environmental temperatures. Designs can be made with custom developed ferrite and dielectric materials that allow operations temperatures in excess of 300° C. Recently, NASCENTechnology performed and completed a 1,000 hour test at a sustained temperature of 300° C. The test was performed on 85047 inductors.
Transformers, Inductors, and Demo Boards are just the beginning. The specs below are just an introduction to our capabilities.
