CUI announced that their NDM2Z series digital point-of-load (POL) modules have been selected as a finalist for UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards in the Ultimate Products - Power category.
The NDM2Z series sets industry benchmarks in efficiency and current density, helping address the growing need to reduce energy usage at the board level in cloud computing and data processing applications. This is the second industry honor for CUI’s NDM2Z series in recent months.
The Ultimate Products of the Year Award, awarded to the most significant product introduced in the last 12 months in 11 categories, is determined by large-scale peer review. Finalists in each category are chosen by expert editors from both EE Times and EDN with accompanying editorial reviews.
Our contest showcases the unique best of breed products that have been brought to the market this year,” said Patrick Mannion, Brand Director, EDN. “The 2013 finalists represent the execution of forward-thinking technologies and creativity that captures the imagination of consumers, illustrating the influence that electronics and embedded design professionals have on today’s culture.”
Mannion continued, “That being said, creativity must be coupled with practicality or good ideas will never see the light of day. Such is the case with digital power for point-of-load applications, which has tremendous potential, but is stymied by lack of standards. The NDM2Z from CUI stands tall among its peers for bringing digital POL to the masses and enabling the next generation of powered devices.”
“We are honored that our NDM2Z modules have been named a finalist for this prestigious industry award,” stated Matt McKenzie, President of CUI. “We will continue to be a leader and to push the envelope in intelligent power management products through our Novum® Advanced Power line.”
This is the fourth industry recognition that CUI’s Novum Advanced Power group has received in the past six months. In November, the company’s NDM2P digital POL series was named to EDN’s “100 Hot Products of 2012.” In January CUI announced that Electronic Products had chosen the company’s NSM2P “No-Bus” digital POL series as a 2012 Product of the Year. Also announced in January was the selection of the NDM2Z digital POL modules as a finalist for Design News’ Golden Mousetrap Awards.
