Rogers gains exclusive rights to Himag’s planar transformers

Speciality materials manufacturer Rogers has entered into a strategic alliance with Himag Solutions, a UK-based technology company that provides custom planar magnetic products.

This alliance is intended to leverage Himag’s planar transformer technology and Rogers’ power distribution technology to bring new, high-efficiency electrical devices to market.

According to Himag, its technology is in advanced planar transformers, which, while more energy-efficient than wire-wound transformers, are also about one third the size and weight of conventional transformers.

Rogers has exclusive rights to integrate Himag’s planar transformers into RO-LINX busbars from the Power Distribution Systems division, which are targeted at the HEV market.
