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.

Pricing and Availability All five new bridge rectifier series (CD-MBL1xx, CD-MBL2xx, CD-DF4xx, CD-HD0x Series and CD-HD2x) from Bourns are available now and are RoHS compliant*. As a pricing reference, the Bourns® Model CD-MBL series are priced from $0.14 (to $0.23) in 12,000 piece quantities, the Model CD-DF series is priced from $0.40 (to $0.50) in 12,000 piece quantities, and the Model CD-HD series are priced from $0.24 (to $0.48) in 15,000 piece quantities.
