CUI Inc Sets Performance Benchmarks with the Release of a 60A Digital Point-of-Load (POL) Series Based on New Power Topology
TUALATIN, Ore., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CUI Inc, has released a new family of digital point of load dc-dc modules that set performance benchmarks in efficiency, power density, and transient response to address the rapidly-rising power challenges in distributed power architectures. The NDM3ZS-60 is a non-isolated module outputting 60A in ultra low-profile vertical and horizontal packages. The series is the first non-isolated design to incorporate CUI's patented Solus® Power Topology which integrates a conventional buck converter into a SEPIC converter to form a SEPIC-fed buck converter. The topology is able to reduce switching turn-on losses by 75% and switching turn-off losses by 99% on the control FET when compared to a conventional buck converter. The Solus Topology further increases total efficiency by distributing the energy delivery into multiple paths, reducing circuit conduction losses by nearly 50%. The new topology allows the NDM3ZS-60 to hit the performance metrics quickly which is imperative in today's advanced designs.
"We are very excited to announce the release of our first non-isolated POL module based on the Solus Power Topology," said Matt McKenzie, CUI's president. "Our networking customers have hit a ceiling with existing POL topologies as the challenges of powering today's advanced ICs have increased. Our NDM3ZS-60 addresses these efficiency, power density, and transient challenges head-on."
CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough, stated that, "According to IHS, a global information company, the world market for digital power is expected to be worth $12.4 billion by 2017. Our Novum® Advanced Power line continues to push the envelope in intelligent power management, solidifying CUI's position as a leader in this rapidly-expanding market segment."
Learn more about the NDM3ZS-60 and the rest of CUI's Novum Advanced Power line at this year's Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) show in Fort Worth, Texas, running from March 16th to the 20th. CUI Inc will be located at booth 1233, and will demonstrate their lineup of advanced power modules, including advanced intermediate bus and digital point of load dc-dc converters.
