Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, expanded its industry-leading line of high power thick film resistors with four new AEC-Q200 compliant product series.
The new Bourns® Model CRM-Q, CRS-Q, CMP-Q and CHP-Q Series are automotive grade and feature high rated power and superior pulse load surge capability.
Manufactured using a thick film element printed onto a ceramic substrate enhances the four new resistor series’ reliability.
The features offered in Bourns’ new AEC-Q200 compliant resistors make them well-suited for current limiters and snubber circuits, as well as balancing and bleeder resistors in automotive, consumer electronics, industrial automation, power supplies, LED lighting and communication base station applications.
Bourns® Model CRM-Q Series high power resistors and Model CRS-Q Series surge withstand resistors are available in three sizes from 1206 (3116 Metric) to 2512 (6432 Metric) with rated power from 0.5 to 2 watts. The Model CMP-Q Series pulse power resistors are available in five sizes from 0603 (1608 Metric) to 2512 (6432 Metric) with rated power from 0.25 to 1.5 watts. The Model CHP-Q Series ultra-high power resistors are available in five sizes from 0603 (1608 Metric) to 1206 (3116 Metric) with rated power from 0.33 to 0.75 watts.
The four new Bourns® Model CRM-Q, CRS-Q, CMP-Q and CHP-Q Series are available now and are RoHS compliant*.
Thick film chip resistors are made of a thick film resistive layer printed onto a ceramic substrate. The thick film resistive layer is a mixture of metal oxides. Surface mount chip resistors have electroplated tin (Sn) outer terminations for board soldering. The resistive element is protected by an epoxy overcoat layer.
