In an exemplary embodiment of the disclosed transformer, the transformer comprises a dielectric area. For example, the dielectric area can consist of three different dielectric layers. Also, by way of example, the dielectric area can comprise silicon dioxide or a low-k dielectric. According to the exemplary embodiment, the dielectric area is interspersed with a permeability conversion material. The permeability conversion material has a permeability higher than the permeability of the dielectric area. For example, the permeability conversion material can be nickel, iron, nickel-iron alloy, or magnetic oxide. The exemplary embodiment further comprises a first conductor and also a second conductor patterned into the dielectric area. The first and/or the second conductor can comprise copper, aluminum, or a copper-aluminum alloy. Each of the first and second conductors are made up of a number of turns which result in, respectively, the primary and secondary windings of the exemplary disclosed transformer.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
