Mouser Electronics is shipping latest innovations from Bourns


Mouser Electronics is shipping the latest innovations from Bourns, a leading manufacturer of automotive sensors, circuit protection solutions, microelectronic modules, precision potentiometers and resistive products. Offering world-class solutions in virtually all industries, Mouser continues to expand its customers’ product development process by stocking more than 20,000 parts from Bourns. Additionally, hosts a growing collection of Bourns eBooks, resources and other technical content.

Bourns PLN planar transformers are forward converter transformers designed for 48 W to 70 W Power over Ethernet (PoE) industrial applications, that require a low profile with a high power density, like battery management systems (BMS). Bourns PLN planar transformers, available from Mouser, operate at a switching frequency of 250 kHz and voltages from 5 V to 12 V with an output current from 4 A to 14 A, making them perfect for both power management and LED lighting applications.

For high voltage applications, Bourns Model BID insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), combine technology from a MOSFET gate and a bipolar transistor for high voltage/high current applications like switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), uninterruptible power sources (UPS) and power-factor correction (PFC). The Model BID IGBTs are thermally efficient, utilizing advanced trench-gate field-stop technology to provide greater control of dynamic characteristics, resulting in lowered collector-emitter saturation voltage and fewer switching losses.

The Bourns MF-ASML/X low-resistance PPTC resettable fuses, also available from Mouser, utilize a proprietary freeXpansion design to increase performance with higher hold currents, higher voltages, and improved resistance stability in a small (0402) footprint. Designed to protect against both overcurrent and overtemperature events within space-constrained mobile applications, such as battery charging and USB port protection, the Bourns MF-ASML/X PPTC resettable fuses offer plug and play protection for PC motherboards as well.

For high temperature environments, Bourns MF-FSHT PTC resettable fuses offer a 12 V voltage rating, up to 40 A input current rating, and a low profile (0603) design. MFFSHT fuses feature surface mount packaging for automated assembly, a maximum operating temperature rating of +125°C, and low thermal derating factor. The Bourns freeXpansion design increases fuse performance, making them ideal for industrial and other demanding applications required to operate at elevated temperatures.
