ZMDI Introduces the ZSPM1503 Digital Power Controller with ZMDI's Tru-sample Technology(TM) for Powering the Next Generation of Telecommunication, Data Communication and Networking Equipment

DRESDEN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- Jan 07, 2015 -- ZMD AG ( ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling energy-efficient solutions, has released the ZSPM1503 single-phase, true-digital power solution that has been optimized to power field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) in telecommunication, data communication, and networking applications. The ZSPM1503 has the ability to regulate the output voltage within a tight tolerance of +/-1% and minimize output ripple voltage to 5mV peak-to-peak or better, which is typically needed to power the core voltage for FPGAs with a 1.2V supply.

The ZSPM15xx family features ZMDI's Tru-sample Technology™, which reduces phase-lag caused by sampling delays, minimizes noise sensitivity and improves transient performance. Tru-sample Technology™ enables the ZSPM15xx family to acquire fast, accurate and continuous information about the output voltage so that the ZSPM15xx can react instantaneously to any changes in the output voltage. The ZSPM1503 is pre-configured to provide customers with a fast time-to-market and easy-to-design digitally controlled power solution with one of ZMDI's integrated MOSFET power-stage DrMOS products: the ZSPM9000, ZSPM9010, ZSPM9015 or ZSPM9060. The ZSPM1503 permits users to easily select the over-current protection limit, output voltage rise time and control loop compensation via two external resistors to achieve the highest performance in their application.

As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI is introducing the ZSPM1503 to expand its energy-efficient Power Management ICs product line with a pre-designed, smart point-of-load (POL) solution optimized for telecommunication, data communication and networking applications.

The ZSPM1503 is capable of supporting loads up to 35A with the popular bus voltage of 1.2V. ZMDI also provides bills-of-materials (BOMs) and circuit board layouts to improve customer design cycles, reduce external component cost and minimize application footprint size.

"Many of the high performance FPGAs in telecommunication, data communication and networking equipment require tightly regulated supply voltages to ensure the FPGA functions at its optimum performance," said Hensen Wong, Product Marketing Manager of the ZMDI Power Management Division. " ZMDI is able to provide customers with a fast time-to-market with a highly accurate and low-noise power solution."
