Bourns Expands High Power Thick Film Chip Resistor Line with Four New AEC-Q200 Compliant Series

Automotive grade Model CRM-Q, CRS-Q, CMP-Q, CHP-Q Series resistors provide excellent surge and high rated power capabilities for current limiters, snubber circuits and balancing and bleeder resistors

RIVERSIDE, Calif., January 30, 2023 – Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today expanded its industry-leading line of high power thick film resistors with four new AEC-Q200 compliant product series. The new Bourns® Model CRM-QCRS-QCMP-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*. For more detailed product information, please see:
