ZMDI strikes patent license agreement with Power-One to develop digital POLs

Business news |
ZMD AG (ZMDI), supplier of energy-efficient analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, and medical applications, and Power-One, a provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, entered into a non-exclusive, worldwide, field of use agreement for Digital Power Technology (DPT) patents from Power-One.

The agreement licenses certain of Power-One’s digital power technology ("DPT") patents to ZMDI, which will design and manufacture smart power management controller for modular digital point of loads ("POLs") for board mounted applications using the licensed DPT. ZMDI and Power-One also signed a development agreement by which ZMDI will develop and manufacture Power-One’s next generation IC-solution for its energy-efficient power conversion products.

"In addition to signing a license agreement with Power-One, we look forward to cooperate closely with Power-One in developing the next generation controller products for Power-One’s energy-efficient power conversion solutions," says Bernhard Huber, ZMDI business line manager for standard components.

Digital power management provides end-users with increased control, efficiency and performance, enabling OEM products and data centers to run more efficiently. DPT dynamically reacts to the power needs of the system, reducing the number of analog board-mounted components, thereby creating a smaller footprint. Digital power provides access to critical system information including current and voltage, enabling the system to monitor the power consumption at the highest possible resolution.
