Mouser Electronics Offers New Transistors, Fuses, and More From Bourns, Inc.

June 21, 2023
Mouser Electronics, a distributor for California-based Bourns, Inc. highlights the latest offerings including planar transformers, insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), low-resistance PPTC resettable fuses, and PTC resettable fuses.

Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the latest products and solutions from Bourns, a manufacturer of automotive sensors, circuit protection solutions, microelectronic modules, precision potentiometers, and resistive products.

Mouser has more than 20,000 parts stocked from Bourns.

Bourns PLN planar transformers (released in 2023) are forward converter transformers designed for 48 to 70 W PoE applications that require a low profile with a high power density, like battery management systems. The transformers operate at a switching frequency of 250 kHz and voltages from 5 to 12 V with an output current from 4 to 14 A, making them perfect for both power management and LED lighting applications.

For high-voltage applications, Model BID insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) (released in 2022), 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 BID series is thermally efficient, using 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 MF-ASML/X low-resistance PPTC resettable fuses (released in 2022) use a proprietary freeXpansion design to increase performance with higher hold currents, higher voltages, and improved resistance stability in a small footprint. Designed to protect against both overcurrent and overtemperature events within space-constrained mobile applications, such as battery charging and USB port protection, the fuses offer plug-and-play protection for PC motherboards as well.

For high-temperature environments, Bourns MF-FSHT PTC resettable fuses (released in 2020) offer a 12V voltage rating, up to 40 A input current rating, and a low-profile design. These fuses feature surface mount packaging for automated assembly, a maximum operating temperature rating of 257°F (125°C), and a low thermal derating factor. The Bourns freeXpansion design increases fuse performance, making them a good solution for industrial and other demanding applications required to operate at elevated temperatures.

Mouser has been a distributor of Bourns products since 2007. To learn more about the wide selection of Bourns products available—or the ones mentioned here—from Mouser Electronics, visit https://www.mouser.com/manufacturer/bourns/.
