Buck-boost transformers, which sometimes take the form of push–pull transformers, help adjust AC voltage between equipment and applications. Buck-boost connections usually appear in electrical equipment that operates with fixed amounts of buck or boost, such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units for computers.

Transformers are passive electrical devices that transfer electrical power between two circuits to increase or decrease the voltage the electricity so it will be best-suited to the final application or end device. Transformers accomplish this through magnetic induction between coils.

As demand rises for various types of electronics, the need for electromagnetic components is increasing as well. Whether employing transformers, inductors, or litz wire electromagnetic coils, a wide range of electronic equipment and systems depend on high-quality magnetics to ensure reliability and longevity.
Invented toward the end of the 1800s, litz wire changed the way wires are configured. Its name is a shortening of the German word, "litzendraht," which means “woven wire.” A litz wire is composed of individually insulated strands of copper which are braided or otherwise woven together in specialized patterns, as opposed to simply twisting the copper strands together.
Litz wire is typically used to improve the efficiency of high frequency transformers, inductors, and coils, and carries AC currents at radio frequencies.
