ChargerLab: Teardown of Anker 100W USB-C Charger, 736 Charger (Nano II 100W)

Anker’s Nano II 100W GaNPrime charger is 34% smaller than conventional silicon 96W charger, with similar capabilities plus two extra ports to power up your MacBook, iPhone, and AirPods all at the same time from a single charger. Using power GaN ICs enables a 100% increase in operating frequency, an innovative stacked design, and an upgraded circuit board structure, GaN technology makes these latest chargers smaller without sacrificing a drop of power.

Navitas’ next-generation GaNFast Power ICs with GaNSense technology are used in both the PFC boost and primary power stage. 2 x NV6136A enable faster switching operation and higher system reliability, by integrating realtime sensing and autonomous protection , which detects to protects in 30 nanoseconds – 6x faster than discrete GaN implementations.
