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 has drastically changed the way wires are configured. A litz wire is any wire that is composed of individually insulated strands of copper braided or otherwise woven together — as opposed to simply twisted — in specialized patterns.

Although Nikola Tesla first demonstrated wireless power transfer in 1890, it took over 100 years for it to offer any tangible benefits for real-world applications. The consumer electronics market, in particular, has greatly benefited from this technology.
At their core, electromagnetic coils are quite simple: metal wire looped around a piece of shaped metal, typically a toroid or cylinder, which generates inductance when electrical current is introduced. Inductance is the property of such a coil to generate electromotive force when the current running through it experiences a change.
For such a simple concept, electromagnetic coils are a pervasive and incredibly important feature in all levels of electrical engineering. They’re employed most often in scenarios where electrical currents and electromagnetic fields directly interact — namely in electromagnets, sensor coils, inductors, and transformers.
With the holiday season upon us, people around the world will be celebrating with family reunions, lavish dinners and drinks, and, of course, for the children, toys. As technology advances and tastes shift, more and more toys are being produced with electric functions. The popular Hoverboards, for instance, make use of various electric components to power their unique capabilities.
As a procurement manager, you know firsthand the challenges associated with finding a quality supplier.
Hitting the right price point can be managed easily enough, but ensuring that a supplier performs as promised — often cited by procurement managers as the most difficult part of the process — can be harder to accomplish.
