December 13, 2012

DRESDEN, Germany, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling
energy-efficient solutions, is pleased to announce that it will be
featured in a television program by The Environmental Report airing in the United States beginning December 15, 2012. The Environmental Report explores the ways that ZMDI has been central in the development of
energy-efficient technologies and underscores its role as an industry
leader in creating solutions that enable energy-efficient products. As
a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive,
industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications,
ZMDI, as an organization, truly believes that energy efficiency begins
at the chip level. Indeed, the demand for electricity represents a
major portion of global energy consumption, so noticeable energy
savings can be achieved through more energy-efficient semiconductor

With an understanding of the importance of conserving energy in consumer
and industrial applications, ZMDI also provides energy-efficient
semiconductor solutions for lighting applications. “While most lighting
solutions today cause high energy consumption and are inefficient by
nature, ZMDI’s LED drivers allow our customers to develop energy-efficient lighting solutions,
such as highly efficient LED light bulbs that consume less energy,”
stated Frantz Saintellemy, President of ZMD America, Inc. and Executive
Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for ZMDI.

ZMDI is also committed to providing solutions for the automotive market
where the global trend is toward manufacturing cleaner and more
fuel-efficient vehicles. As fuel prices continue to climb and resources
become harder to find, ZMDI is playing an important role in the reduction of carbon dioxide
emissions by providing manufacturers of domestic and commercial
vehicles with intelligent integrated circuits for lowering gas
consumption. The company estimates that its products have helped save
over 4.2 billion gallons of fuel, which has prevented the release of 40 million tons of CO(2) into the atmosphere. A company with 50 years of experience providing
semiconductor solutions, ZMDI is focused on a greener future, which The Green Organization has
recognized with an Environmental Best Practice Award to ZMDI in 2012.

The Environmental Report featuring ZMDI will first air in the Portland, Oregon area on Saturday,
December 15(th) at 9:30 a.m. PST. The program will continue to air into 2013 over 40
times throughout the United States on various networks including CNN.
Details of future show times will be made available on the ZMDI website
(www.zmdi.com) and on the company’s social network page (www.facebook.com/zmdint).
