Two fully automotive-qualified, high-precision data-acquisition System Basis Chips (SBCs) have been released by ZMDI. For simultaneous measurement of battery voltage and current as well as internal and external temperatures, the ZSSC1750 and ZSSC1751 feature two high-precision, high-resolution ADCs.
ZMD AG (ZMDI) 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.
ZMD AG announces the ZSSC1856 and ZSSC3154 Automotive IC's . The ZSSC1856 is the first member of a new Battery Power Management product line. The ZSSC1856 features two high-precision 18-bit Sigma/Delta ADCs with an on-chip voltage reference. Designed for ultra-low power consumption, the ZSSC1856 uses less than 100μA in Sleep Mode and comes in a PQFN32 5mm x 5mm package only 0.85mm high.
Based on its recent analysis of the Battery Sensor Integrated Circuits (ICs) market, Frost & Sullivan recognises ZMDI with the 2012 Europe Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award for its innovative battery monitoring device - ZSSC1856.
ZMD AG (ZMDI) announced today that it exceeded its own growth targets by a considerable margin in 2011 and expects to continue to grow in 2012. According to ZMDI’s preliminary figures for 2011 as announced today, it generated revenues of 64M €, reflecting an increase of 16 percent over the previous year (2010: 55.1M €). The 2011 growth can be attributed primarily to demand for energy-efficient automotive products and solutions. ZMDI’s double- digit growth exceeded both its own forecast and the general rate of market growth, which was in the single digits in 2011. ZMDI generated significantly higher earnings (EBIT) in 2011; based on preliminary numbers, it generated earnings of approximately 4.5M €, reflecting an increase of 3.5M € over the 2010 earnings. This growth has translated into several new employment positions as well new sales and engineering locations throughout Europe and the United States. ZMDI is also optimistic that 2012 will continue to exhibit growth and allow for further additions in personnel worldwide.
ZMD AG today introduced four smart sensor signal conditioner ICs. ZMDI designed the ZSSC3131, ZSSC3135, ZSSC3136 and ZSSC3138 for the signal conditioning of resistive bridge sensing elements, like silicon or ceramic-based piezo-resistive transducers or thin-/thick-film or gauge-type sensor elements. The devices are ideal for automotive and industrial pressure sensing applications such as HVAC, cooling, pneumatic brakes and other hydraulic systems.
ZMD AG is proud to announce the ZSSC1856, a new Intelligent Battery Sensor IC for fuel saving start/stop systems and other solutions for measuring State of health (SOH), State of charge (SOC) or State of function (SOF) of a vehicle’s battery. The first member of a new Battery Power Management product line from ZMDI, the ZSSC1856 comes in a QFN32 5x5 package of only 0.85mm height.
