New Gallium Nitride (GaNFast) technology dominates silicon in consumer mobile fast charger market

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(PRWeb)— Navitas Semiconductor today announced that it will showcase world-leading GaNFast™ power IC technology in addition to partnerships with major electronics brands at the SEMICON China 2020 exhibition and conference in Shanghai. Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than old, slow silicon (Si), and enables 3x more power, which translates to up to 3x faster charging in half the size & weight.

Forty years ago, the power electronics industry experienced an extraordinary and disruptive change with the introduction silicon MOSFET technology. In the following decade, the power supply industry experienced a 5x increase in power density, a 5x reduction in losses in energy savings and a 3x reduction in costs. However, the next 30 years saw heavy investment that yielded smaller and smaller improvements. Now, GaN Power ICs with monolithic integration of GaN FET, GaN digital and GaN analog circuits have driven a new generation of high-frequency, high-efficiency and very high-density power converters.

“All new flagship fast chargers from top mobile OEMs use GaN technology,” noted Charles ZHA, VP & General Manager of Navitas China. “For the Thinkplus 65W GaN ‘Lipstick’ fast charger, GaNFast power ICs enabled Lenovo to deliver the world’s smallest, lightest charger to power the new Carbon X1 and Yoga laptops.”

GaNFast power ICs enable next-generational upgrades across diverse markets from 25-100W consumer and mobile USB-C fast chargers and adapters for smartphones and laptops, to 200-800W TV and all-in-one computers and on up to multi-kW EV, industrial and datacenter power supplies.
