A method for planar inductor design has been established on the basis of a discussion on the magnetic flux density distribution. Planar inductors for miniature dc-dc converters have been developed using this design method. This converter is much smaller and thinner than conventional ones, and has an output—power/volume ratio of 1.7 W/cc.
