Engineers on a Roll Toward Smaller, More Efficient Radio Frequency TransformersExternal link

University of Illinois engineers have minimized the size of one notoriously large element of integrated circuits used for wireless communication – the transformer – creating three-dimensional rolled-up radio frequency transformers that take 10 to 100 times less space, perform better when the power transfer ratio increases, and have a simpler fabrication process than their 2-D progenitors Read MoreExternal linkage
