New eBook from Mouser Electronics and Bourns highlights growing role of Passive Components in Electronics Design

Mouser Electronics has released a new eBook in collaboration with Bourns, Inc., exploring the role of passives in emerging electronics applications, including renewables, hybrids, and electric vehicles.

In Passives and Their Emerging Applications, eleven experts from companies including Bourns, Eaton, Samsung Electronics, and Whirlpool offer their insights regarding the vital role of passives in electronic circuits. The eBook features five chapters focusing on different types of passives, as well as the long-term outlook for passives in the future of electronics design. Chapter topics include magnetics, circuit protection, current measurement, and resistive solutions for pre/discharging circuits.

Passive components play an essential role in the operation of electronic devices, supporting functions including signal processing, power conversion, power management, and electromagnetic interference suppression. While passives have always been used in electronics, they are growing in importance for a range of next-generation solutions, including 5G mobile networks, green energy storage, smartphones, and autonomous vehicles. Passive components help facilitate electronic designs that are increasingly complex, ensuring reliable performance even in harsh environments with extreme temperatures, humidity or vibration.

The new eBook includes links to 10 relevant products from Bourns, including the SRPWA Series AEC-Q200 Compliant Shielded Power Inductors, the PTVS1-0xxC-H Series High Current Power TVS Diodes, the CMP-Q Series High Power Anti-Surge Chip Resistors, and the PLN Series Planar Transformers. Bourns’ reliable passive components deliver high current surge protection and reliable switching for demanding designs and applications.

Bourns’ range of products, available from Mouser, includes connectors, sensors, switches, and fixed resistors. To learn more about Bourns, visit
