CUI, INC., A SUBSIDIARY OF WAYTRONX, INC., has entered into a non-exclusive Field of Use agreement with Power-One, Inc. to license Power-One's digital power technology patents, which CUI will incorporate in their new digital point of load (PoL) power modules. “Power-One is pleased to license its digital power portfolio to CUI, Inc.,” said Alex Levran, Power-One's chief technology officer. “We feel this move continues our goal of expanding the market for digital power technology and the inherent advantages it holds over standard analog solutions.”
CUI is a PMBus member, and, through its V-Infinity power division, manufactures a range of embedded and external power electronics devices for OEM manufacturers. “We are excited to partner with Power-One to incorporate their digital power management technology into our line of products,” adds William Clough, Waytronx's president and CEO. “With this agreement, we can now bring a product to market that is able to take full advantage of digital power's potential over a broad target market.
“We see a need in the market for a fully functional, PMBus-compliant module that can be easily implemented into a number of systems,” Clough continues. “Once again, our ability to continue acquiring technology from blue chip clients like Power-One in the current business climate is a testament to the strength and quality of our marketing team as well as our broad product and service offerings.”
