ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in
enabling energy-efficient solutions, today announces the launch of two new
products: the ZSPM1000ZA1R and ZSPM9010ZA1R. A global supplier of analog and
mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information
technology and consumer applications, ZMDI is expanding its Smart Power
Management portfolio to serve additional applications for non-isolated DC/DC
POL supplies. The ZSPM1000ZA1R operates as a synchronous step-down converter in
a single-rail and single-phase configuration with an extended operation
temperature range from -40° to +125°C. In addition, ZMDI offers the
ZSPM9010ZA1R, a DrMOS device that is an ultra-compact MOSFET with an integrated
power-stage driver. In combination with ZMDI's compatible ZSPM90xx DrMOS
family, the ZSPM1000ZA1R enables true digital POL solutions for
constrained-area and high-performance applications, such as servers, storage
units, processor and FPGA boards, and others.
"ZMDI is well-known globally as a supplier of innovative and
energy-efficient semiconductors. With this expansion of our product portfolio,
we offer our customers leading-edge and easy-to-use POL devices for the rapid
development of smart power management solutions," explains Bernhard Huber,
Business Line Manager for standard components at ZMDI. "In comparison to
conventional analog solutions, digital communication enables tremendous energy
savings and thermal management benefits through system-level integration. With
our Pink Power Designer™, a best-in-class design optimizer, we can support
power engineers to balance design trade-offs such as cost, size and efficiency,
which helps to quickly identify the optimal POL solution."
- Performance: The ZSPM1000ZA1R provides best-in-class transient
performance, enabled by ZMDI's Tru-Sample™ technology at an extended
operation temperature range from -40° to +125 °C. ZMDI's State-Law™
technique ensures a good steady-state behavior at the same time.
- Optimization: The ZSPM9010ZA1R DrMOS is optimized for use with ZMDI's
ZSPM1000 digital-controller family for non-isolated POL supplies.
- Package: The ZSPM1000ZA1R digital POL controller IC comes in the
smallest standard package currently available: a 24-pin QFN package
(4mm x 4mm). The ZSPM9010ZA1R comes in a matching ultra-compact 40-pin
PQFN package (6mm x 6mm) and provides 72% space-saving compared to
conventional discrete solutions.
- User Friendly: The PC-based ZMDI Pink Power Designer™ provides a user-
friendly and easy-to-use interface to the device for communication and
configuration. It guides the user through the design of the digital
compensator and offers intuitive configuration methods for additional
features, such as protection and sequencing.
- Availability and Price: The ZSPM1000ZA1R controller and the
ZSPM9010ZA1R DrMOS are in full production now. The complete ZSPM8000
Evaluation Kit and the PC-based Pink Power Designer™ tools are
available from ZMDI. For 10,000 pieces, each chipset is priced at €2.52
or $3.64 US.
