ZSPM8000 Evaluation Kit for the ZSPM1000 PWM Controller and ZSPM9000 DrMOS

The ZSPM8000-KIT supports evaluation of DC/DC point-of-load (POL) applications. The kit incorporates the ZSPM1000 digital PWM controller IC and the ZSPM9000 DrMOS power output stage to form a "smart" buck converter (a.k.a. step-down DC-to-DC converter). The ZSPM8000-KIT Evaluation Kit hardware functions with the Pink Power Designer™ Graphical User Interface (GUI), which is used for communication and programming of the ZSPM1000. The GUI requires the MATLAB® runtime environment. The GUI software and runtime environment are available for download.

The kit includes the PMBus™ Communication Interface, which provides the interface between the ZSPM8000 Evaluation Kit and the user's computer.
