- This paper describes the development of an open frame type high power density switching converter. It is based on the active clamp forward converter with synchronous rectifier, and packaged by using the open frame and multi-layer printed circuit board (PCB) technology to achieve the higher power density. Furthermore, the windings of transformer and inductor are also realized by multi-layer PCB so that it also contributes to achieve higher power density. Through the experiment on the proto-type converter of 50[W], it is confirmed that power density of 50[W/in3] and maximum efficiency of over 91[%] are obtained.
