DRESDEN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

ZMD AG (ZMDI), an award-winning global semiconductor company headquartered in Dresden, Germany, and specializing in enabling energy-efficient solutions, today announces the ZSSC416x and ZSSC417x family of next generation sensor signal conditioners. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI is pleased to introduce a state-of-the-art sensor signal conditioning family capable of measuring single, dual or differential bridge inputs and internal or external temperature sensors. With a wide analog pre-amplification range, the ZSSC416x products are capable of highly accurate amplification and sensor-specific correction for most resistive bridge sensors and the ZSSC417x products are optimized for highly accurate thermocouple readings. Measured values are provided via the digital SENT 3.0 output or I2C(tm) (trademark of NXP). With over 50 years of industry leadership, ZMDI has developed the ZSSC416x/ZSSC417x family as the next evolution of ZMDI's current successful sensor signal conditioner ICs.

"The ZSSC416x/ZSSC417x family of products from ZMDI's Next Generation Sensor Signal Conditioner Family is designed for ease of integration into our customers' sensor platforms without sacrificing the performance and flexibility needed for the lowest possible system costs," stated Steve Ramdin, Global Product Line Manager for Multi-Market Sensor Platforms at ZMDI. In addition to the highest proven performance needed for future products, ZMDI's Next Generation Sensor Signal Conditioner Family ICs offer customers ease of use with a wide range of predefined signal processing configurations and flexible input pin selection for quick integration in a wide variety of applications. Mr. Ramdin added, "Our goal is to make it easy for our customers to build flexible sensor platforms, quickly and at the lowest possible system costs."
