Bourns CANbus surge protection solutions
CAN is a serial bus designed with a message-based protocol specifically for automative applications. Due to the harsh environments that they function in, CANbus systems are at risk of damage from ESD and transient voltage surges. Qualified to AEC-Q101, Bourns' CDSOT23-T24CAN-Q TVS diode arrays are designed to improve the reliability of these systems. With bit rates up to 1 Mb/s possible at network lengths below 40m, this solution provides protection from high energy surges originating from switching and/or higher voltage transients.order sample kit
Bourns power supply solutions
Linear and switch mode power supply circuits include several common stages, which require careful design to meet high reliability performance requirements in smaller, more compact applications.
Avnet Abacus offers a wide range of passive components from Bourns, designed to perform key roles in filtering, protection and conversion at each stage of these circuits. Using our new tool, you can explore the individual stages and identify the most suitable products for your power supply design, download datasheets and buy online.GET STARTED
