RIVERSIDE, Calif., July 15, 2009 — Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced the new SRF series of line filters for electromagnetic interference (EMI) suppression.  Designated Bourns® models SRF0504, SRF0602, SRF0905, SRF1006 and SRF1306, the new lead free line filters feature inductance values from 0.55 µH up to 6500 µH and current ratings as high as 5 amps.  Line filters are required in personal computers, data terminals, test equipment and process controllers for high frequency suppression into or out of electronic equipment.  The new devices are RoHS* compliant and offer excellent EMI suppression capability at high frequencies for a broad range of applications that require minimization of interference.

“It is important to match the right line filter to a particular application, that is why Bourns is pleased to expand its product line with a new series of line filters for appropriate EMI suppression,” said Guido Zehnder, Inductive Product Line Manager  for Bourns, Inc.

“This new series of line filters give our customers a wide range of inductance values and are well suited for applications that require minimal interference such as computer, communication, instrumentation, industrial and medical applications.”

Technical Features

Model Current Rating Inductance Range Frequency Range
SRF0504 up to 5 A 0.55 to 5.0 µH to 1200 MHz
SRF0602 300 mA 10 to 330 µH to 1600 MHz
SRF0905 up to 1.6 A 10 to 6500 µH to 300 MHz
SRF1006 up to 1.4 A 120 to 5000 µH to 200 MHz
SRF1306 up to 2.7 A 35 to 1000 µH to 250 MHz

Pricing and Availability
As a pricing reference, Bourns’ new SRF series of line filters is priced from $0.36-$1.10 per piece and is available now.  For a complete list of model numbers and characteristics, go to Bourns Common Mode Chokes.

Bourns Announces New Steering Diode Array Device Optimized for ESD, EFT and Surge Protection

July 8, 2009
RIVERSIDE, Calif., July 8, 2009 – Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced the introduction of a new steering diode array that provides up to six lines of protection using the “rail to rail” clamping technique with low leakage current and low capacitance per line. Designated Bourns® model CDNBS08-SR112, the lead-free steering diode device was designed specifically for ESD, EFT and surge protection applications and is RoHS compliant.* Available in an NSOIC-8 package, the new device is designed to be mounted directly onto an FR4 printed circuit board. Bourns engineers optimized the design to protect a wide range of applications including Ethernet ports, portable electronics, wireless LANs and Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface-based systems.
Bourns’ steering diode array meets IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) and IEC 61000-4-5 (surge) requirements for external ports and features very low capacitance of 5 pF to minimize electrical distortion. The devices also meet many worldwide, industry and government regulations regarding lead-free components and are designed for a variety of manufacturing environments, allowing the use of industry-standard “pick and place” equipment. The chip diode NSOIC-8 package offers simplified production with its flat configuration that minimizes rollaway.
“Bourns’ new steering diode array provides a good choice for ESD, EFT and surge protection for up to six communication data lines and also fits circuit board space constraints,” said Ian Doyle, ESD Product Line Manager for Bourns, Inc. “Bourns is pleased to offer the newest addition to the company’s steering diode array product line that meets industry demands for smaller electronic components with extremely low power consumption.”
