About Planar Magnetics
While the planar technology started to take off during the 90’s
it was somehow ahead of its time. Planar Magnetics are cost
effective at high switching frequencies starting at about 50-60kHz
but best operates at 100kHz and up. The typical SMPS switching
frequencies during the 90’s was 20-70kHz mainly due to the high
cost of High Frequency power active components like MOSFETS.
AS the price of those power elements started to drop engineers
got more experience designing high frequency SMPS.
The industry started to require better efficiency together
with the demand for small size and low profile products.
Repeatability and weight are extremely important in the
automotive industry which is today the most growing segment
to use planar magnetics.
Planar Magnetics provides better efficiency which reflects in lower heat to dissipate that simplifies the Power Supply design. Planar Magnetics works in a wider range of temperatures, demonstrate smaller weight and size and last but not least is the high repeatability provided by the pre-tooled parts such as PCB and lead-frames.
