N2Power Announces Two New 5 Volt DC-DC Power Supply Models

Expressly Designed for OEM Applications

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - N2Power, a Qualstar Company (NASDAQ: QBAK), today announced expansion to its families of DC-DC power supplies. The new
XL125-05DC and XL160-05DC 5 volt models are designed specifically for OEM applications where small size, high efficiency and reliability are critical. 

The new 5 volt DC-DC power supplies were developed to meet the particular requirements of international telecom systems manufacturers, and complement the AC-DC versions of the same families. 

Up to 87% power efficiency is achieved utilizing N2Power's industry-leading "green" packaging technology. These unique designs leave the heat in the load, not in the supply, reducing power consumption, improving reliability and lowering cost of ownership. 

"Our OEM customers want the same advantages of small footprint, power efficiency, value and quality that they gained buying our AC-DC power supplies in their DC-DC requirements," said Randy Johnson, Vice President and General Manager of N2Power. "They requested DC input versions of the 5 volt AC designs that they have been purchasing."

The new models join the XL125 DC-DC and XL160 DC-DC families introduced in 2009. These DC-DC product lines offer designers an extensive range of capabilities. Thirty-two multi-output models offer outputs from 5 volts to 56 volts. N2Power supplies meet a full range of international standards, including RoHS, UL, CE Mark, DEMKO and FCC Class B. 

N2Power's products are sold worldwide through its network of representatives and distributors. Sample units are available. Call 805-583-7744 or visit for further information.
