CUI Devices is an electronic components manufacturer specialising in an ever-expanding range of product technologies. Formerly part of CUI Inc, you can trace their roots back to 1989 just outside of Portland, Oregon. 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.

Fan bearing types – weighing the pros and cons
Fans are one of the most recognised and utilised components for thermal management, having proven to be both efficient and cost-effective at removing excess heat from a system. At the heart of all fans is the fan bearing, which most hold up to thousands of rotations per minute and reliably operate for the full lifetime of the application. This video takes a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of the two most common bearing designs, th...

Reliability Considerations for Peltier Modules
Peltier modules, also known as thermoelectric coolers (TEC) or thermoelectric modules (TEM), are solid state devices which transfer heat when electrical power is applied. This blog post will provide an overview of Peltier module construction followed by a summary of common failure mechanisms and ways to improve TEC reliability.
How to select a Peltier module
What is a Peltier module and how do you select the right one for your application? As a quick overview, a Peltier module is a semiconductor device that, once a current passes through it, it actively transfers heat from one side of the module to another.
Comparing MEMS and Electret Condenser Microphones (ECM)
MEMS microphones and Electret Condenser Microphones (ECMs) are the two most common technologies used for voice capture and audio recording.
Absolute vs. Incremental Encoders - what’s the difference?
When you need to measure the speed, direction of motion, or position of a rotating shaft, you will likely require a rotary encoder.
