A DC to DC converter including a zigzag transformer. The transformer operates at high frequency with integrated magnetics and does not provide isolation. The multiphase converter has gate inputs with PWM signals appropriately phase-shifted depending on the number of phases to make balanced phase voltages across the transformer windings. The switching frequency of the converter is relatively low but fast transient response can be achieved by adding an integrated zigzag transformer.
