ZMDI Expands its Smart Power Management Product Portfolio with the ZSPM9060, a Next-Generation DrMos Device for Highest Energy Efficiency

November 5, 2012

DRESDEN, Germany, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling
energy-efficient solutions, today announces the release of the
ZSPM9060, a next-generation, fully optimized, ultra-compact, integrated
MOSFET-plus-driver (DrMOS) power stage solution for energy-efficient,
high-current, high-frequency, synchronous buck DC-DC applications. As 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 with the ZSPM9060, a
new product for non-isolated DC/DC point-of-load (POL) supply

In combination with ZMDI’s compatible smart power management product
family, the ZSPM9060 enables area-constrained and high-performance
applications, such as servers, storage units, processor boards,
field-programmable gate array (FPGA) boards and others. This DrMOS
device is compatible with ZMDI’s ZSPM10xx family of leading-edge,
configurable digital power management system controllers for
non-isolated POL supplies and other pulse-width modulation (PWM)
controllers. The ZSPM9060 has a compatible ultra-compact 40-pin PQFN
package (6mm x 6mm) and provides a 72% space saving compared to
conventional discrete solutions.

“ZMDI is well-known as a supplier of innovative and energy-efficient
semiconductors. With this further expansion of our product portfolio,
we want to extend our product offering of leading-edge and easy-to-use
POL devices to provide our customers various tools for the rapid
development of smart power management solutions,” explains Bernhard
Huber, Business Line Manager for Standard Components at ZMDI.
