Bourns Launches New SinglFuse™ Line of Thin Film Chip Fuses

RIVERSIDE, Calif, September 23, 2008 — Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced its SinglFuse™ SF Series of thin film chip fuses. This new line provides highly reliable overcurrent protection in three surface mountable footprint sizes. Each product size features two series to cover the fusing types of fast-acting and slow-blow. The new SinglFuse series expands Bourns’ comprehensive circuit protection portfolio with a line of thin film chip fuses for use in applications such as LCD monitors, digital cameras, cell phones, industrial controllers and rechargeable battery packs.

Bourns’ SinglFuse products protect against a wide range of overcurrent events and feature current ratings from as low as 500 m amps up to 7 amps. The thin film design of Bourns’ new SinglFuse products ensures high precision for specific fusing characteristics. Single-use thin film chip fuses are specifically designed for applications which require one-time acting fuses that allow a physical break in the circuit if a short circuit arises, eliminating the need for a circuit reset. The thin
