ZMDI, a Global Semiconductor Company, is honored to be a recipient of an Environmental Best Practice 2012 Award at this year's Green Apple Awards ceremony at the Palace of Westminster, London

DRESDEN, Germany, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling energy-efficient solutions, was honored to receive a prestigious Environmental best Practice Award recently for its "Intelligent Integrated Circuits for Fuel Savings Project." As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI is committed to being the first choice in analog mixed-signal solutions enabling energy efficiency.


"At ZMDI, sustainability is all about providing customers with products that ease the demand for energy; i.e., power and fuel in sensing, power management and lighting applications. To reach this goal, ZMDI's product designers develop semiconductor products that are used by our customers to design innovative energy-efficient systems. Winning the Green Apple Award is a great honor as we work to provide customers in automotive, consumer and industrial markets with IC solutions that help fulfill their need to significantly reduce the energy consumption in end applications," said Frantz Saintellemy, President ZMD America, Inc. and Exec VP - Global Sales and Marketing at ZMDI. "To reverse the trend toward increasing world energy consumption and therefore increasing CO2 emissions, an extraordinary effort for energy reduction, including a path to "green" energy generation, is needed. Indeed, energy efficiency starts at the chip level."

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organization and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world. The awards are now in their eighteenth year and are well established as one of the major environmental recognition campaigns, both in the UK and internationally. The Green Apple Environment Awards recognize, reward and promote environmental best practices around the world.

In addition to enabling "active" energy savings by using special technologies and design methodologies, ZMDI products also lead to "passive" energy savings. An example of a "passive" energy saving device is ZMDI's battery monitoring IC, which enables the "stop-start" functionality in vehicles and therefore indirect (passive) energy/fuel saving.

ZMDI's energy-saving technologies address almost all market segments; e.g., automotive and transportation, lighting, industry and infrastructure, and mobile consumer applications. Its power management and sensor solutions enable customers to create the most energy-efficient products in their markets.
