    In the USA, a snubber circuit most often serves to consume undesired energies that might damage circuits or cause undesired noise. In Japan, power supply bypass capacitors are sometimes referred to as snubbers. I suspect this originated with an error when transcribing a piece of equipment, and propagated from there.

    A simple and common snubber is a resistor in series with a capacitor, a so called RC snubber. A common application is to reduce transient voltages and ringing in transformer coupled switching power supplies.
