Abstract

Portable devices are often powered by batteries and DC-DC converters are used to convert battery energy to supply power for microprocessors and integrated circuits. Portable electronic devices are required to be compact and, hence, space for converters is very limited. Therefore, the demand for integrating individual components into modules to reduce the size and increase the power density of DC-DC converters is increasing. It is important to develop a low temperature sintering NiCuZn ferrites with a superior DC-bias-superposition characteristic; the nonmagnetic materials co-fired with the magnetic NiCuZn ferrites, and the low-pressure assisted constrained sintering process for the large area NiCuZn ferrites substrates for the DC-DC converter modules. This study successfully developed the key technologies and materials for the development of DC-DC converter module. It integrated the magnetic NiCuZn ferrites with superior DC-bias superposition characteristic and nonmagnetic ferrite materials using multilayer ceramic processing and low-pressure assisted constrained sintering technologies to prepare a large area NiCuZn ferrite substrate for DC-DC converter module.
