|Soft ferrites are important components in electric/electronic engineering. Their initial
permeability can reach over 15k. Ferrites are dense, homogenous ceramic structures made
by mixing iron oxide with oxides or carbonates of one or more metals such as zinc, manganese,
nickel or magnesium. They are pressed, then fired in a kiln at high temperature, and machined
as needed to meet various operational requirements. Ferrite parts can be easily and economically
molded into many different geometries. Many diverse materials are available, providing many choices
of desirable electrical and mechanical properties.
Ferrite components are widely used in transformers at high frequency, computers, telecommunication
equipments, consumer's electronics, industrial automation equipments and various kinds of
electronic instruments, and sensors etc.
