CUI Inc Adds Solus Topology to Next-Gen Intermediate Bus Converter Delivering 720 W in a Quarter Brick Package
Press release date: March 17, 2014
TUALATIN, Ore. – 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 introduced its second-generation high density isolated intermediate bus converter (IBC) family - the NQBS series. The family has been specifically created to address the rising power requirements and efficiency demands in telecom systems and data centers.
Launched at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) in Fort Worth, Texas, the NQBS modules are housed in a quarter brick package and deliver a power density of 27.2 W/cm3 (445 W/in3) as well as efficiencies in excess of 96%.
These IBC devices incorporate the company's patented Solus® Power Topology, which delivers a greater power density, higher efficiency, faster transient response, and lower EMI in both isolated and non-isolated dc-dc converter designs.
The NQBS series IBC module incorporating the Solus Topology joins the company's recent high performance non-isolated point of load product introductions.
"As more of the world comes online, designers of next-generation networking equipment are being asked to manage significantly higher power demands in the same space," said Matt McKenzie, CUI's president. "Maximizing efficiency and power density at every point in the power architecture has, therefore, become critical. When combined into a distributed power system, we believe our Novum Advanced Power portfolio provides an extremely compelling answer to the growing power challenges in today's networking designs," concluded McKenzie.
CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough commented, "This is the second significant product announcement in the last month to come out of CUI Inc's Novum Advanced Power Group. Their team of talented engineers continues to push intelligent power management designs ahead of the curve in this large and rapidly evolving market."
