Our compact switching converter using a thin-film microtransformer mono-lithically integrated with rectifier diodes represents the first step in developing a monolithic micro-switching converter that can be integrated with semiconductor devices and magnetic components. This converter is a single-ended forward converter with resonant reset and operates successfully at 15 MHz. The maximum output power is 0.5 W.
