  • Patent number: 10192674
    Abstract: A coil component includes an air-core coil embedded in a magnetic body constituted by resin and metal magnetic grains. Both ends of the coil are exposed on the surface of the magnetic body, and the side on which both ends are exposed is polished and etched to form terminal electrodes. To be specific, an underlying layer of metal material is formed across the surface of the magnetic body and the ends by means of sputtering, and then a cover layer is formed. Where the magnetic body contacts the underlying layer, the areas where the underlying layer is in contact with the resin ensure insulation, while the contact between the underlying layer and the exposed parts of the metal magnetic grains ensures adhesion, thus increasing the adhesion strength with respect to the terminal electrodes.

The thermal plate supports the inductor and includes a channel having a flexible wall with actionable particles. The emitter is located adjacent the channel. The controller is programmed to activate the emitter to impart a force upon the particles to move the wall such that a cross-sectional area of the channel is adjusted to influence a flow rate of coolant flowing therethrough. The wall may be a membrane partially secured to an interior of the channel and include the actionable particles. The actionable particles may be one of dielectric and magnetic particles and the emitter may selectively output one of a voltage, an electric field, or a magnetic field to move the dielectric or magnetic particles such that the membrane moves to adjust the cross-sectional area of the channel to influence a flow rate of coolant flowing therethrough.

  • Patent number: 10134518
    Abstract: Radio frequency (RF) transmission line transformers are disclosed. Unlike conventional transformers that employ magnetic cores that transmit energy from input to output through magnetic flux linkages, the embodiments of the RF transmission line transformer disclosed herein transfer energy by configuring transformer coils as balanced transmission lines. More specifically, the RF transmission line transformers have a primary transformer coil that forms at least one primary winding and a secondary transformer coil that forms at least a pair of secondary windings. The primary winding of the primary transformer coil is disposed between the pair of secondary windings so that the primary winding forms a different balanced transmission line with each one of the pair of secondary windings. This results in greater bandwidth and higher transformer power efficiency (TPE) at RF frequencies.
