Power-One Inc. (Andover, MA) announced that Arrow Electronics Inc. (Melville, NY) has been fully certified to implement Z-One Digital IBA™ power solutions for its customers. Arrow is the first distributor to achieve full Z-One™ Design Center certification, and its power specialists are trained to program the ZM7100 Digital Power Managers by using the Z-One GUI design software, or the I2C protocols, which will allow them to design and simulate customized digital power systems for most applications in under an hour, compared to days of prototyping for analog designs.

Power-One Chairman and CEO Steve Goldman commented, "Arrow Electronics has been a great partner in its recognition and implementation of the broad range of customer benefits provided by the Z-One digital power system. Arrow has met the certification requirements to become a Z-One Design Center by giving its regional power specialists extensive technical training encompassing the full capabilities of the hardware-configurable, Z-1000 No-Bus™ point-of-load converters, and the I2C programmable Z-7000 Series."

"Arrow Electronics sees tremendous value in cutting-edge, digital power design with Z-One Digital IBA," said Arrow PEMCO Supplier Services Group Vice President Don Schlidt. "Our extensive sales network and technical resources dedicated to power supplies are ready to facilitate the design-win momentum of these revolutionary products."
