DRESDEN, Germany, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling energy-efficient solutions, is pleased to announce that it will be featured in a television program by The Environmental Report airing in the United States beginning December 15, 2012. The Environmental Report explores the ways that ZMDI has been central in the development of energy-efficient technologies and underscores its role as an industry leader in creating solutions that enable energy-efficient products. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI, as an organization, truly believes that energy efficiency begins at the chip level. Indeed, the demand for electricity represents a major portion of global energy consumption, so noticeable energy savings can be achieved through more energy-efficient semiconductor technology.
With an understanding of the importance of conserving energy in consumer and industrial applications, ZMDI also provides energy-efficient semiconductor solutions for lighting applications. "While most lighting solutions today cause high energy consumption and are inefficient by nature, ZMDI's LED drivers allow our customers to develop energy-efficient lighting solutions, such as highly efficient LED light bulbs that consume less energy," stated Frantz Saintellemy, President of ZMD America, Inc. and Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for ZMDI.
ZMDI is also committed to providing solutions for the automotive market where the global trend is toward manufacturing cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicles. As fuel prices continue to climb and resources become harder to find, ZMDI is playing an important role in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by providing manufacturers of domestic and commercial vehicles with intelligent integrated circuits for lowering gas consumption. The company estimates that its products have helped save over 4.2 billion gallons of fuel, which has prevented the release of 40 million tons of CO 2 into the atmosphere. A company with 50 years of experience providing semiconductor solutions, ZMDI is focused on a greener future, which The Green Organization has recognized with an Environmental Best Practice Award to ZMDI in 2012.
