The silicon chip is history; gallium nitride and GaNFast power ICs are driving a fast-charger revolution
DUBLIN (PRWEB) April 12, 2021
Navitas Semiconductor today announced that Spigen Inc. has extended its range of ‘ArcStation Pro’ GaN-based fast chargers, now including the world’s smallest 45W model for Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the S21 Ultra.
Gallium nitride(GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 100x faster than old, slow silicon (Si), and enables up to 3x more power or 3x faster charging in half the size & weight. GaNFast™ power ICs integrate GaN power and drive plus protection and control to deliver the simplest, smallest, fastest and highest performance.
The Samsung S21 Ultra smartphone has a large, 5,000 mAhr battery and uses an advanced version of the universal serial bus (USB) power delivery protocol, called ‘programmable power supply’ (PPS). PPS can monitor the phone’s battery status in finer detail and adjust the delivered power more accurately to ensure the fastest – and safest – charging speed.
Measuring only 47 x 47 x 27 mm (60 cc) including folding pins, the Spigen 45W (model PE2015) is the smallest 45W PPS charger in the world, and ~30% smaller and lighter than Samsung’s own 45W model.
“The original GaNFast 20W ArcStation Pro charger for the iPhone 12 was our most successful launch,” said Sean Lee, Spigen’s product and marketing manager. “By expanding the ArcStation Pro range with increased power, we can extend that success to the Samsung S21 and S21 Ultra which can fast-charge using a full 45W. The 40W version has dual USB-C outputs so you can charge two devices at the same time.”
“Spigen’s ArcStation Pro delivers the fastest charging rates for the new Samsung S21 range – and is differentiated by superb ‘soft-touch’ industrial design, affordable price points and commitment to quality,” said Stephen Oliver, Navitas’ vice-president corporate marketing and investor relations. “The silicon chip is history; gallium nitride and GaNFast power ICs are driving a fast-charger revolution.”
The Spigen 45W ArcStation Pro is the ultimate fast-charger for the latest Samsung and Apple smartphones. For specifications of the entire range, enabled by GaNFast power ICs, see attached PDF.
