Bourns is recognized as a leading provider of resistive goods, offering a comprehensive array of resistive elements that are suitable for a wide variety of application requirements. Thin film and thick film chip resistors, chip resistor arrays, chip resistor networks, current sense resistors, metal strip shunts, pulse-resistant resistors, sulfur-resistant resistors, UL recognized fusible resistors, high-power resistors, and wirewound resistors are just a few of the resistive products that we develop and design for the flexibility of each designer.
They are used in automotive, current sense, surge/pulse withstand, high voltage, sulfur-resistant, and fusible circuit protection applications, among other things.
Greater power densities, higher working temperatures, lower temperature coefficients, and higher operating voltages are just a few of the challenges that will face product designers in the future. That is why parts from Bourns are being designed and developed in the telecommunications, automotive, industrial and consumer industries in order to fulfill future needs.
