LG Innotek’s high-efficiency ferrite, Advancing the Era of Ultra-Slim OLED TVs Under 2cm Thick

LG Innotek announced on the 19th that it has successfully developed a high-efficiency ferrite with the lowest power loss in the world. This development has contributed to LG Innotek’s dominance in the TV and vehicle power markets.

Ferrite is a magnetic material with iron oxide as its primary raw material, and ferrite powder is hardened into a tile shape for industrial use. It is usually installed in TV power modules, vehicle power sources, and chargers (On Board Charge, OBC) to change the voltage or remove unnecessary signals generated by current surges. This provides a stable power supply to display panels for TVs and air conditioners, as well as audio systems for vehicles. Read more
