Planar transformers (PTs) offer advantages over traditional wire-wound transformers including low-height, low leakage inductance, excellent thermal characteristics, Exceptional reproducibility and manufacturing simplicity. Despite these features, PTs have very high parasitic capacitance due to the large overlapping area and the small distance between… CONTINUE READING
