CUI to Provide Multi-Source Digital POL Platform

CUI Inc, a subsidiary of CUI Global, Inc. (OTCBB: CUGI), has reached a statement of cooperation with Ericsson, the world's leading provider of technology and services to telecom operators, under which it will develop and market multi-source, digital Point-of-Load (POL) power solutions that are based on the Ericsson footprints and designs.

The agreement concerns Ericsson’s current BMR46X platform and plans for its expansion. CUI will initially develop and bring to market a solution that is pin and function compatible with the BMR46X platform under CUI’s Novum Advanced Power product line. Novum digital non-isolated POL modules allow power design engineers to realize better energy efficiencies, more compact designs, and improved time-to-market compared to traditional analog technology.

The initial efforts by CUI will be followed by CUI and Ericsson cooperating to provide solutions outside of the 12A to 40A range.

“Given the diversity and complementary strengths of our respective experience and know-how in digital power, we look forward to cooperating with Ericsson to further the advancement of our Novum power products,” stated Mark Adams, VP of Advanced Power Marketing for CUI Inc. “Together, we expect to bring the digital power revolution to a whole new level.”
