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 Low-Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (LTCC) production technique that has dramatically changed transformer technology and is revolutionizing 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 wire-wound transformers. Because of the production process, these transformers can handle sweltering temperatures. The LTCC production process, which embeds the coil windings within one solid unit (a miniature monolith), results in a far more reliable transformer which is able to withstand extreme shock, vibration, as well as sweltering temperatures.
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.
