CUI Inc. announced the addition of two GaN desktop ac-dc power supply series to its SDI product family. The SDI200G-U and SDI200G-UD offer 200 W of continuous power from a compact desktop package. These ac-dc supplies have been designed for a wide range of portable industrial and consumer products, where efficient power is needed in a lighter, smaller adapter package.
The SDI200G-U and SDI200G-UD comply with UL/EN/IEC 62368-1 and 60950-1 requirements. The adapters also meet the current average efficiency and no-load power specifications mandated by the US Department of Energy (DoE) under the Level VI standard and the European Union’s (EU) CoC Tier 2 directive for universal input voltage ranges; with up to a 250% increase in power density, no-load power consumption as low as 210 mW, and universal input voltage ranges of 90 ~ 264 Vac.
The SDI200G-U series offers a three-prong (C14) inlet, while the SDI200G-UD features a two-prong (C8) inlet. Measuring 5.91 x 2.13 x 1.3 in. (150 x 54 x 33 mm.), the compact new models are 32% smaller than the non-GaN models.
The SDI200G-U and SDI200G-UD are available immediately with prices starting at $188.50 per unit at 5 pieces through distribution. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing or modified & custom designs.

About CUI, Inc.
CUI Devices is an electronic components manufacturer specializing in an ever-expanding range of product technologies. With a mission to provide OEMs with a collaborative design experience, we’re here to help you achieve your design goals on time and on budget.
Formerly part of CUI Inc, you can trace our roots back to 1989 just outside of Portland, Oregon. CUI Inc entered the market as a manufacturer of high-precision oscilloscope probes but would go to grow their product offerings and expand their resources locally and across the globe
In September of 2019, a group of senior managers deeply involved in the historical growth of CUI Inc—and with over 15 years of average tenure—spun-off part of the business. Thus, CUI Devices was born, offering a wide range of Interconnect, Audio, Thermal Management, Motion, and Sensor solutions
Today, with proven processes and systems intact, CUI Devices will continue to be the familiar and trusted source for electronic components you’ve come to rely on—just evolved. We understand the bending and forking design journey our customers boldly travel. We’ve been on an unfolding journey ourselves. As we move forward, we’ll empathetically stay committed to your design’s success without distraction or delay. Our suite of online resources and knowledgeable staff are ready to help.
