What's in a name?
Perhaps everything.

Our name was carefully chosen to express who we are.

NA•SCENT (`nä-sənt)

1. Coming into being; emerging
2. Beginning to develop.

The word actually comes from the root of the Latin word nasci, which means to be born.

NASCENTechnology is a leader in emerging technologies, and nowhere is that more evident than with the Low Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (LTCC) Transformer.

For 100 years, industry had relied on the old wire-wound transformer.

For 100 years, the basic transformer did not change, even as the technology around it changed.

For 100 years, engineers had one choice around which to build their products.

And now, NASCENT.
