GaNFast Power ICs enable HyperJuice – world-wide, full USB-PD 100W performance.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(PRWeb)— Navitas Semiconductor today announced its partnership with HYPER by Sanho Corporation to introduce the HyperJuice 100W 4-port charger with GaNFast (Gallium Nitride) power IC technology to achieve the world’s smallest and lightest portable form-factor.
Measuring only 85.3 x 60.8 x 28.9 mm (150 cc) the HyperJuice 100W is powerful enough to charge two 15” Macbooks simultaneously (via the 2x USB-C), with flexibility for two more mobile devices via the additional two USB-A ports.
“We wanted to make the smallest, most flexible 100W charger ever, so the circuit board and components are laid out in the most compact and space-efficient manner using only the industry’s most efficient components that can deliver the best performance,” said Daniel Chin, CEO of HYPER by Sanho Corporation, continuing “GaNFast technology enables 45% lower energy loss than the old, slow silicon chargers in the market today, and for the ultimate in portability, at only 208 g it’s 50% lighter than competition too”.
The 100W HyperJuice uses power-sharing technology to deliver optimal charging to a vast array of multiple devices from watches and air-pod chargers, all the way to a single 100W for the new Apple 16” Macbook. Either of the two USB-C outputs can deliver the maximum 100W as specific by the USB Power Delivery (PD) specification, with the two USB-A sockets providing up to 18W each for lower power, quick-charge or legacy systems. Capable of world-wide AC voltage input, the HyperJuice is supplied with innovative ‘snap-fit’ AC adapters (UK, EU/Korea, AU) to support the international explorer and business traveler without additional bulky, heavy converters.
“As shown by the $1.5M Kickstarter backing, confidence in the 100W HyperJuice is extremely high,” said Gene Sheridan, CEO of Navitas, adding “We are very pleased to provide enabling GaNFast power IC technology as a key part of Sanho’s next-generation charger roadmap. Here come the GaN chargers!”.
