Engineers who design power converters need the latest information on power magnetics technology to ensure their designs perform at the highest levels. ‘Focus on Magnetics’ will help engineers to obtain this highly valuable information.
Smithtown, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
A new monthly column just launched in the How2Power Today newsletter explores the latest advances in power magnetics, a critical area within the field of power electronics. Called “Focus on Magnetics,” this column presents news about power magnetic components and technology as well as articles on various aspects of power inductor and transformer design and other magnetics components used by engineers in the design of power converters, power supplies, and power systems. This column is sponsored by Payton Planar Magnetics, a world leader in the design and manufacture of planar transformers and inductors.
“Power converters are crucial to the performance of nearly all electronic equipment, big and small. Even the products that we may not think of electronics such as cars and appliances are rich in electronics content and therefore rely on power converters to enable their reliable operation. Power magnetic components are crucial to the performance of the many different types of power converters used across the spectrum of electronics applications, influencing the size, efficiency, and many other aspects of power converter performance,” said David G. Morrison, editor of How2Power.com.
Jim Marinos, executive vice president at Payton America, added, “Engineers who design power converters need the latest information on power magnetics technology to ensure their designs perform at the highest levels. ‘Focus on Magnetics’ will help engineers to obtain this highly valuable information.”
Over time, the Focus on Magnetics column will present various types of articles on power magnetics. It will include contributed articles by engineering experts as well as staff written features, covering developments in industry and academia. The first column, which appeared in the February issue of How2Power Today, was Dennis Feucht’s in-depth design article, “How To Choose Between Ferrite Or Powdered-Iron Cores: A Case Study.” This article is now available online at http://www.how2power.com/newsletters where visitors can also sign up for a free subscription to How2Power Today, ensuring that they receive future issues of the newsletter email with upcoming Focus on Magnetics columns.
