TUALATIN, Ore., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CUI Inc, a subsidiary ofCUI
Global, Inc.(NASDAQ: CUI), today announced that Electronic Products Magazine,
a key publication for important developments in products and product
technology within the electronics industry, has named the NSM2P "No-Bus"
digital point-of-load (POL) series as a Product of the Year for 2012. From
thousands of products, the editors at Electronic Products select the winning
submissions based on a significant advance in technology or its application,
innovation in design, or gain in price/performance.


The NSM2P series is a unique iteration of CUI's class-leading Novum® Advanced
Power digital POL modules. The No-Bus series is designed specifically for
customers who value the performance advantages inherent in digital power but
do not want to incorporate digital bus communication in their systems. The
modules allow customers to access a full suite of digital parameters during
the development stage where the desired functions can be tested and
manipulated within the system through CUI's simple to use graphical user
interface (GUI). The NSM2P series offers the flexibility of digital power in a
device that is simple to integrate within a power system.

"We are honored to have received this award from Electronics Products
Magazine," said William J. Clough, President and CEO of CUI Global. "2012 was
a game-changing year for our Novum® Advanced Power Division and it is a
privilege for CUI and its Design Team to be recognized among the top companies
who have produced the electronic industry's most innovative, successful
products and services."

"The editors of Electronic Products Magazine awarded the prestigious Product
of the Year to CUI for its NSM2P because it was the first self-compensating
point-of-load dc/dc module that doesn't need a digital bus," said Senior
Editor Paul O'Shea. "Hence designers don't need to learn digital commands as
it allows the engineers to set limits for voltage, current, and temperature by
developing a configuration file via a graphical user interface. This makes it
easy for developers to change and even store additional configurations for
simple access, and with no hardware changes."
