DRESDEN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- May 12, 2015 -- Editors' Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

ZMD AG ( ZMDI), an award-winning global semiconductor company headquartered in Dresden, Germany, and specializing in enabling energy-efficient solutions, today announces the ZAMC4100, an intelligent actuator and motor controller IC with integrated motor drivers.

ZMDI's ZAMC4100 addresses the growing demand for intelligent actuator/motor control in industrial, medical and automotive applications, and it is ideal for use where a small form factor is required or external components must be minimized. In a single compact 9x9mm QFN package, the ZAMC4100 integrates an ARM® Cortex™-M0 microcontroller (trademark of ARM, Ltd.); eight power stages with integrated MOSFETs; SPI, UART and LIN2.1 communication interfaces; eight general-purpose digital input/output (I/O) pins; and four general-purpose analog inputs.

"The intelligent ZAMC4100 Actuator and Motor Controller IC with integrated motor drivers provides cost-effective solutions in a wide range of applications, such as industrial automation, building control, medical equipment, security systems and automotive applications," said Jan Leuckfeld, Product Manager at ZMDI. "For example, the ZAMC4100 provides a compact single-chip solution for the latest generation of automotive premium exterior mirrors. It controls the heater, LEDs and DC motors for mirror adjustment and folding, blind-spot detection, puddle light, defroster and turn signal."

Key Features of the ZAMC4100:

--  Embedded ARMr Cortex™-M0 microcontroller 
--  Four integrated low RDSON half-bridge drivers 
--  Four integrated low RDSON high-side switches 
--  Wide input voltage range: 6V-18V (withstands load-dump conditions up to
--  Embedded SPI, UART and LIN 2.1 interfaces 
--  Auto-dimming electrochromatic mirror feature 
--  Extensive fault protection and error handling 
--  AEC-Q100 qualified 
--  Compact 9mm x 9mm QFN package 


--  Automotive applications 
--  Home appliances 
--  Medical equipment 
--  Security systems 
--  Industrial automation 

Evaluation kits and application boards are available including software development kit, GUI and hardware interface.


The ZAMC4100 is in full production. Parts, samples and evaluation kits are available directly via ZMDI regional offices. (
