Pulse transformers for LAN applications transmit pulse signals through LAN cables with networking equipment and audiovisual equipment. They protect the circuits of these devices by blocking electrostatic discharges and high-voltage transients due to insulation between the primary and secondary windings.
Although they have low total harmonic distortion, they are compliant with 10/100/1000BASE-T, 2.5GBASE-T, 5GBASE-T, and 10GBASE-T LAN systems as well as PoE (Power Over Ethernet).
While the wire windings of conventional pulse transformers are produced manually, TDK’s new pulse transformers are manufactured with a compact SMT design using an automatic winding and assembly technology. As a result they feature stable electrical characteristics and take up less space.
