Next-gen gallium nitride (GaN) ICs fast-charge from 1-50% in only 7 minutes
Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS), the only pure-play, next-generation power semiconductor company, has announced its next-gen GaNFast power ICs have been selected for the ‘in-box’ 125 W charger of Motorola’s latest ﬂagship smartphone, the X30 Pro. A charge from 1% – 50% in just 7 minutes brings an ultra-fast charging experience to Motorola users.
The Motorola X30 Pro is the world’s ﬁrst to feature a 200 MP main camera, and sports a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, plus a 6.7-in OLED display with 144 Hz refresh rate. To support this powerful performance, the X30 Pro features a 4,610 mAhr battery, the 125 W ultra-fast wired charging, and per Android Authority, the X30 Pro “could easily be the most powerful ﬂagship phone of this year”.
High-speed GaNFast power ICs enable the lightweight 138 g ultra-fast charger to measure only 55.6 x 55.7 x 28.4 mm (88 cc) and achieve 1.42 W/cc power density for ultimate portability. GaNFast ICs integrate GaN power and drive, plus control, protection and sensing to enable up to 3x faster charging with up to 40% energy saving in only half size and weight, compared with legacy silicon solutions. In this charger, two NV6134A GaN ICs are used in CrCM boost PFC and HFQR DC-DC topologies.
Jin CHEN, General Manager of Smartphone BU, Lenovo China commented on the launch of X30 Pro: “We hope to deliver a more comprehensive user experience in the ﬂagship X30 Pro. By working hand-in-hand with Navitas and Aohai Technology, we are able to utilize GaN and speed up the charging capability of Motorola’s smartphones to a new level. We look forward to collaborating further with Navitas and Aohai Technology, to break more records in charging speed, and offer a convenient and ultra-fast charging experience to our users.”
“We are excited that GaNFast technology empowers Motorola to achieve a more powerful charger. This time, Motorola, Navitas and Aohai Technology’s new collaboration reached a new, benchmark 125 W fast-charging solution on the new X30 Pro.” said Charles (Yingjie) ZHA, VP and GM of Navitas China: “We are dedicated to offer an eco-friendly and ultra-fast charging experience for consumers. This tiny but powerful 125 W GaN charger demonstrates our continued effort to ‘Electrify Our World™’. Navitas will continue to push the innovation of GaN technology to empower Motorola’s charging roadmap.”
The 125 W GaN charger is designed by Aohai speciﬁcally for the Motorola X30 Pro. Cuisi KUANG, Senior Vice President of Haohai said: “Navitas has always been a trust-worthy partner, and we are delighted to work with them to create this amazingly light and powerful design. Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs are fast and reliable, easy-to-use, and we can complete our R&D with a faster speed and higher success rate, so enabling us to design more outstanding power products.”
