West Coast Magnetics is expanding its lab space and engineering roster this year, and with it we expand our research and development capabilities. Our vision is not only to produce inductors, transformers, and filters with traditional designs, but to create new technology. We participate in continuing education such as the Applied Power Electronics Conference to ensure we use the most current information in our designs, and to give insight into possible new designs. We also attend smaller local seminars to ensure our learning continues year-round, and is not merely condensed into one week! We also partner with academic institutions, assisting in their research by providing building and testing capabilities that might not be available to them at home. These partnerships allow us to work with young innovative people with fresh ideas. Through these means we stay on the cutting-edge of magnetics design. Our commitment to research and development is strong and we look forward to creating modern products for use in the newest technology.
