Bourns New Trimming Potentiometers Offer Significantly Lower CRV and Improved Linearity for Sensitive Microprocessor Designs

Bourns continues history of innovation with new precision design Trimpot® products allowing customers to select the exact features required for their applications

Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced high reliability precision Trimpot® trimming potentiometers that provide more accurate linearity, lower Contact Resistance Variation (CRV) and can be customized to a customer's exact requirements. Based on the company's continued innovation and 70-year history of engineering, Bourns designed its new precision Trimpot® products for use with microprocessors or in applications where precise adjustment is needed.

Newer circuit designs that incorporate microcontrollers are more sensitive to noise. In order to read all output correctly, tighter linearity and less noise have become critical requirements when precise, accurate design adjustment settings are needed. Bourns new generation of precision Trimpot® products offer a more consistent ratio of output (electrical reading) to input (mechanical rotation) to meet strict linearity requirements. Their lower CRV means less noise that results in fewer output errors. Designers also gain the ability to offer faster operator and machine adjustments to the target resistance while providing a more consistent output curve.

Customers can place orders immediately for Bourns' sealed, multiturn precision Trimpot® products in 6 mm through-hole or 4 mm surface mount (SMT) packages. The new products are RoHS compliant and can be ordered halogen free. For more detailed customization and ordering information, please contact:
