What Do Customers Want and Why The Inflection
Point Now..
  1. More and more lower voltages are needed by our
  2. Number of outputs are increasing
  3. Power management functions are escalating, as are
    of components
  4. Power takes too much space costs too much
  5. Power is getting more complex integration has
    been non-existent

Z-One Architecture Benefits of Z-7000
  • Any voltage, any current, any configuration
    architecture is highly adaptive flexible
    system reconfiguration on-the-fly
  • Real-time telemetry continually monitors
    temperature, current, and voltage for precise and
    optimized control
  • Open architecture communications with
    industry-standard I2C interface bus and affiliate
    program with BOTH module mfg. and silicon
  • More reliable and flexible fault management
  • 90 reduction in time to market, development,
    of components board traces

Z-Series Digital Power Manager
Z-Point Of Load Converters
2nd Generation Digital Power
  • 2nd Gen POLs "Server Series"
  • Triples output current to 60 amps
  • High current expands market
  • Very high level of interest
  • Enhanced Digital Power Manager
  • IC replaces entire module (1/6th the footprint)
    with increased functionality
  • Controls four non-Z converters, e.g., fans
  • No-Bus Z-1000 Series POLs
  • NO protocol, NO memory, NO software and NO
    programming are required
  • Lower price point matches analog POLs

Results for Z-One Digital Power
  • We have a significant head-start on the
    competition. No other competitors module
    available due to our IP
  • Market adoption was significantly delayed by
    competing technology that violated Power-Ones
    IP. Jury found for Power-One in recent lawsuit
  • The Zs disruptive architecture is a true
    revolution in power and 2nd Generation POLs -
    tripled the output current!
  • Licensed technology (second sourcing)
  • Module 2nd source with Murata Mfg. (Top 5 DC/DC
  • Semiconductor Z-affiliate announced with Atmel in
    July05 and with Micrel LDO (Low Drop-Out)
    regulator IC in Sept 06
  • Silicon Labs joined the Z-Alliance in August 06
  • Micrel joined the Z-Alliance in March 07
  • Customers can offer products with additional
    system features and benefits and with faster TTM
    (time to market)
  • New markets opened, e.g., Storage Server,
    Military, Aerospace Security (total POL market
    exceeds 1.0 billion)
  • Board-level design wins continue significantly
    more embedded in the customers systems

Recent Actions Improvement Plans
2005/2006 Major Restructuring/Sales Growth
  • 2005 Goal of profitability achieved in Q3 Q4
  • Reduced gt30M in overhead SGA
  • High-cost Norway functions moved to low-cost
  • Telecom Power Systems integrated with embedded
  • 2006 Return of Growth
  • Return of sales growth was 1 goal
  • Server Storage and Power Systems growth
  • 10-15 growth was at high-end without acquisition
  • Acquisition in Oct. of Power Electronics Group of
  • Q4 negative changes to core business started

2007 Integration Execution, Synergy Cost
  • Acquisition increased sales dramatically to 512M
    with significant opportunities for growth
  • Material costs and synergy/leverage some
    improvement, but off-set by higher logistics
    costs and inefficiencies
  • Acquisition integration and synergies
  • Shutdown California facility moved products to
    low-cost areas
  • Closure of Hungary mfg. in Q4-07 completed move
    to low-cost Slovakia in Q1-08
  • Moving China outsourced products to acquired mfg.
    in Asia
  • SGA restructured for 20M in savings
  • High-cost RD (U.S. Ireland) moved to
    lower-cost areas
  • Texas and Finland shutdown
  • Improved Gross Margins and lowered costs, but not
    as much as planned (Positive EBITDA in Q3 Q4)

2008 Focus on Gross Margin Efficiency
  • Sales orders are not the issue there are many
    opportunities. We must be profitable with a
    500M business.
  • Main issues are 1.) factory costs
    increases/inefficiencies, 2.) material costs, and
    3.) logistical costs, both fuel and excess
    component movements
  • 1. Factory costs
  • All low-cost/high-volume products are being
    transferred to Asia Increases efficiencies with
    less product movement, economy of scale, and
    lowest cost
  • All factories and products are being evaluated
    and product transferred to align with
    customer/supplier bases to gain optimum cost
  • Low margin products and projects (customers) will
    be rationalized
  • 2. Material costs
  • Progress has been made, but not as much as
    planned and the savings have been offset with
    escalating logistical costs.
  • We have focused teams assigned for this to
    continue driving down the costs of materials
  • 3. Logistic costs
  • Improved 1.5 in gross margin in Q4, more
    improvements expected
  • Need to minimize movement of components - Lowest
    costs materials are in Asia, having more products
    manufactured in the area should increase savings
