Dresden-based semiconductor company ZMDI have announced the release of a true-digital 25A point-of-load (POL) solution in partnership with Murata Power Solutions the board mount power provider.
ZMDI's ZSPM1025 single-phase digital PWM controller family ICs for non-isolated DC/DC supplies, combined with Murata Power Solution's single-phase 25A surface-mount power block, claim to provide a quick route to high-performance smart digital power solutions.
ZMDI's software enables the user to customise these solutions for optional digital communications via PMBus, output voltage range and output load. The digital control loop and compensators are preconfigured in the new ZSPM1025 family devices.
A downloadable complete construction kit is available, including a graphical user interface, layout guidelines and step-by-step instructions. It is ready to be immediately implemented in the application design.
Three smart digital power solutions with output currents up to 25A are now available. ZMDI plans to extend this family of single-phase, true-digital POL controllers for Murata Power Solution's single-phase surface-mount power blocks with higher output current capabilities later this year and in early 2014.
"In combination with the highly reliable Murata Power Block technology, we are offering ready and tested POL solutions, which can be easily 'pasted' into any design," said Tycho Raab, Product Line Manager at ZMDI. "With our product's simplicity of use and the solution readiness, you do not need highly-specialized knowledge to design power compensators."
