Navitas Semiconductor has announced the release of its brand new GaNFast gallium nitride (GaN) ICs which will be powering OPPO’s new 50W ultra-thin and fast ‘League of Legions’ limited edition fast charger. The new charger has a relatively thinner and lighter body compared to other 50W chargers that come with an innovative lanyard charging cable.
The charger will come with various League of Legends-inspired designs. For example, the charger case will have a pure black “piano paint” Luster along with an X-shaped protective back clip and classic graffiti of the game’s character “Jinx”. It is designed in a way that attracts many young audiences.
GaN is a new semiconductor that has many advantages over legacy silicon technology. GaN is up to 20 times faster, can provide 3x more power, 40% energy savings, and triple the charging speeds at half the weight of a silicon charger. Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs utilize the GaN technology along with drive plus protection to deliver the best performance.
The charger idea two, 2MHz-rated NV6115 GaNFast ICs in an active-clamp flyback (ACF) with zero voltage and zero current switching for the highest efficiency. The charger only weighs about 55g, thanks to a high-frequency planar transformer which allows it to achieve such a form factor.
Jeff ZHANG, Chief Charging Technology Scientist of OPPO said on the product release: “We are very pleased to add ‘League of Legends’ game elements to the classic OPPO super-fast cookie charger. GaN is now once again integrated into this charger that has attracted much attention from mobile game fans. This charger brings consumers a light and fast charging experience while allowing ‘League of Legends’ fans to show their unique personality.”
The highly advanced ‘cookie’ charger was designed by Powerland Technology. Co-founder Dr. Qiu YANG stated, “Powerland has always insisted on integrating excellent innovative technology like GaNFast power ICs with rich product-development experience, design, and production. The ’50W’ cookie charger is the crystallization of our continuous innovation. We look forward to continuing our cooperation with OPPO and Navitas Semiconductor to continue to bring amazing charging products to consumers.”
“Navitas is very honored to once again assist the release of OPPO 50W ultra-thin and ultra-fast cookie charger through the excellent design of Powerland Electronics,” said Charles (Yingjie) ZHA, VP and GM of Navitas China. “Our joint goal is to continue to explore gallium nitride’s charging potential, to create a smaller, lighter, greener, and more convenient charging.”
