Abstract: In this article, a multilayer piezoelectric transformer based on lead-free Mn-doped 0.94(Bi[sub ½]Na[sub ½])TiO₃-0.06BaTiO₃ ceramics is presented. This piezoelectric transformer, with a multilayered construction in the thickness direction, is 8.3 mm long, 8.3 mm wide, and 2.3 mm thick. It operates in the second thickness extensional vibration mode. For a temperature rise of 20°C, the transformer has an output power of >0.3 W. With a matching load resistance of 10 Ω, its maximum efficiency approaches 81.5%, and the maximum voltage gain is 0.14. It has potential to be used in low voltage power supply units such as low power adapter and other electronic circuits.
