Agile Magnetics Products: Transformers with PCB and Molded Leads

While magnetic product quality and performance are essential factors of electrical systems, it is also important to consider the impact of electronic packaging.

In order to provide optimal protection for components, transformers must be efficiently designed and configured within electronic products. Not only do they need to interface with computerized components, but transformers must also be protected against electrostatic discharge, cooling, and many other factors.

Designed with all of these considerations in mind, Agile Magnetics offers transformers with PCBs and molded lead frames for use in high technology products.


When engineers design complex electronics, they need compact and efficient means of connectivity. PCBs provide what traditional wiring cannot: nonconductive pathways on a copper sheet to maximize design efficiency, convenience, and performance.

Because the compressed nature of PCB transformers prevents them from maintaining advanced cooling mechanisms, they are typically operated within a strict set of minimum and maximum temperatures. Even so, these transformers offer excellent longevity when properly maintained.

Agile Magnetics’ PCB transformers, constructed from high quality cores to meet all the measurement needs of AC current, are available in a range of sizes, configurations, and materials.

Molded Lead

Lead frames are also integral to electrical devices and circuit boards. Used in virtually every semiconductor package, molded leads consist of a thin layer that connects wiring from semiconductor surfaces to larger-scale circuitry.

Molded leads, typically manufactured in long metal strips, are designed for quick processing on assembly machines. The two most common fabrication processes are photo etching for lower volumes and stamping for large production runs.
