Bourns New Bridge Rectifier Diode Series Offers Industry-Leading Capabilities Enabling More Power-Efficient Designs

RIVERSIDE, Calif., December 6, 2016 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced five new bridge rectifier product series designed for power and Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) applications. The newly released products come in ultra-low profile packages of 1.0 mm to 1.4 mm making them well-suited for use in high-density board designs, and also for mounting onto the bottom side of Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBAs) where necessary.

The Bourns® Model CD-MBL and Model CD-DF4 bridge rectifiers offer exceptional high forward current and low forward voltage making them optimum solutions for converting Alternating Current (AC) to Direct Current (DC) in power applications. These features allow designers to meet compact, high efficiency design requirements avoiding the need to specify larger diodes for higher current applications. Similarly, Bourns® Model CD-HD Schottky bridge rectifiers provide exceptionally low forward voltage in a space-saving package enabling developers of set-top boxes, monitors, cable modems and other AC-operated products to achieve power-efficient designs.
