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

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 applications.


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.

ZSPM9060 DrMOS Features:

  • Best-in-class energy efficiency: >93% peak
  • High current handling: IOUT up to 60A
  • VIN: 3V to 16V (typical 12V)
  • Operation temperature: -40°C to +125°C
  • Switching frequency: up to 1MHz
  • 72% space savings due to ultra-compact 6x6 mm PQFN-40 package (RoHS compliant)
  • Compatibility with ZMDI's family of leading-edge DrMOS devices
  • An open-loop evaluation board is available for the ZSPM9060

Availability and Pricing

The ZSPM9060 is in full production. Parts and an open-loop evaluation board are available from ZMDI.

For 1,000 pieces, the ZSPM9060 is priced at EUR 1.63 or USD 2.28 per unit.
