The patent-pending Planar product design offers a multitude of

reduced size and weight, high efficiency, low leakage, consistent
parasitics, and excellent thermal characteristics. The innovative use of
pre-formed flatwires yields significant cost reductions compared to
existing stacked layer and multilayer PCB designs.

handling capabilities. Developed to be fully customizable to individual
customer needs, the planar SMD transformers comes in multiple turns
ratio options with optional Aux winding for maximum flexibility. The
parts have a low-profile height of 10 mm and an operating temperature
range of -40°C to +125°C.

confident in Digi-Key's ability to deliver," said Dominik Kern,
president, Wurth Electronics Midcom. "We need a partner we can rely upon
to have product on the shelf for immediate delivery while offering a
