WCM excels at the design and manufacture of one-off high spec magnetic components. Our singular capability for custom design of power and RF transformers and inductors is enriched by our on-going research into new technology for magnetics for power conversion at frequencies from 1 MHz to 5 MHz. This frequency range straddles the high frequency spectrum of most SMPS applications and the lower frequency spectrum of RF applications, yielding useful insights into both high and low frequency areas.
WCM has completed over 500 successful designs for the medical device industry, most used in patient critical surgical devices, and we are a qualified supplier to 30 key players in this field. We supply both custom magnetic components and turn-key chassis mount electronic assemblies.
WCM has worked the design side of the regulatory process for over 10 years and we provide engineering support for design built to CSA/UL/TUV requirements. West Coast Magnetics is certified ISO 9001 & ISO 13485. Tape and reel standard for volumetric requirements.
The use of power electronics is widespread within most industrial applications, and WCM’s business in this segment reflects this diversity. A few of our important applications include the manufacture of bonded solenoid coils for electric actuators, the design/build of tuned RF filtering assemblies for high frequency wafer etch equipment, and the design and manufacture of 2.5 kW noise cut filter to deliver ultraclean power for semi-conductor processing equipment.
We provide a low delivered cost of power with electronic components that are highly efficient, low cost and scalable to high volume. Our successful design and manufacture projects include everything from a complete set of magnetics (SMPS transformer, current sensing, common mode choke, buck inductor) for a solar inverter; a complete set of 10 magnetic components for a high volume, high power inverter; and the design of a very high power, high ripple, high frequency boost inductor for a wireless charging bus inverter.
The military and aerospace market is driven by high reliability and narrowly defined electrical, mechanical and operational specifications as well as full compliance with MIL spec requirements. We have designed for both the military and aerospace market and are a qualified supplier to a number of companies that operate in this market. Our capabilities meet the defense industry’s high spec and reliability requirements. WCM’s Stockton facility is ITAR certified.
WCM serves a number of companies that are OEM suppliers to the communications market. A few important applications includes the design/build of tuned RF inductors for microwave radios, the design support/build of high voltage magnetics used for satellite communication amplifiers, and the design/build of filtering magnetics used in very high data rate optical switching equipment.
