Bourns, Inc. has developed seven new PortNote Solutions to assist designers in selecting the appropriate circuit protection solution for a specific port interface. Bourns® PortNote Solutions are a series of one-page documents that provide concise information on relevant compliance standards, Bourns solutions and part numbers, the specific interface schematic and alternative solution references. The new documents also feature application-based tools for audio/video and data communication and telecommunications designs, and are a useful resource to help streamline the circuit protection selection process for a specific port interface.
"Selecting the right circuit protection solution for a particular port interface can be time consuming and daunting," said Dr. Erik Meijer, vice president of circuit protection at Bourns. "With our extensive circuit protection knowledge, Bourns is committed to helping our customers reduce their development time. Because our unique PortNote™ Solutions documentation has been positively received, we have chosen to add seven more popular port solutions to this successful series."
Easily accessible on the Bourns website, the seven new PortNote Solutions cover Ethernet and RS-485 ports for datacom applications; LVDS input and output ports for audio/video applications and T1/E1 telephony, VDSL line side and VDSL over POTs for ports in telecom designs. In addition, Bourns offers corresponding design kits. Each design kit contains sufficient Bourns® products to build five of the circuits offered in the PortNote™ Solution. Bourns® PortNote™ Solutions are not intended to replace detailed application notes or the customized solutions provided by Bourns' FAE teams, but instead provide useful information in the circuit protection selection process for a specific port interface. A total of 22 individual Bourns PortNote Solutions including the corresponding design kits can be viewed on the Bourns website at www.bourns.com/Library.aspx?name=PortNoteSolutions.
