The ZL6100 is an integrated mixed-signal power conversion and management IC that combines an efficient step-down DC/DC converter with key power and thermal management functions in a single package. The ZL6100 incorporates current sharing and adaptive efficiency-optimization algorithms to provide a flexible, efficient power IC building block.

The ZL6100EVAL2Z platform is a 6-layer board with two power rails. One rail is a single-phase, 30A power rail. The other rail is a dual-phase, 60A power rail demonstrating the current sharing capability of the ZL6100.

A USB to SMBus adapter board can be used to connect the evaluation board to a PC. The PMBus command set is accessed by using Renesas' PowerNavigator™ evaluation software from a PC running Microsoft Windows.
