This book comprehensively addresses the design and fabrication of high reliability magnetic devices. It combines the author's 46 years of experience in magnetic circuit design with the US MIL-T-27 and MIL-STD-981 standards.

After a history of high reliability custom magnetic components from 1950 to the present, chapter 1 discusses Transformer and Inductor Design Philosophy.

Chapters 2 and 3 address Magnetic Materials and Magnetic Cores, respectively. Chapter 4 discusses Window Utilization, Magnetic Wire and Insulation and covers topics including solderable insulation, bonding methods, and electrical insulating materials.

Coil Winding Layer, Foil and Toroidal are presented in chapter 5, while chapters 6 and 7 discuss Soldering and Magnetic Wire Terminations, and Packaging, Enclosures, Mounts and Headers, respectively.

Part preparation, quality assurance and application and storage, are amongst the subjects discussed in chapter 8, Polymeric Impregnate, Embedment and Adhesives. The two remaining chapters of the book discuss High Voltage Design Guidelines, and Testing, Evaluation and Quality Assurance.

“High Reliability Magnetic Devices” provides an easy to read and highly illustrated reference text suitable for those involved in the design and production of magnetic devices with low production cost.
