GaN Systems and Phihong debut Gaming Laptop Power Supply
280W charger is claimed to be the industry’s highest power density power supply for gaming laptops
At PCIM Europe 2022, GaN chip company GaN Systems and power supply firm Phihong Technology announced the debut of Phihong’s 280W GaN charger, which is claimed to be the industry’s highest power density power supply for gaming laptops at 16W/in3 power densit.
The 280W GaN charger has a 95 percent full load conversion efficiency and < 0.2W no-load standby loss.
“In this very mobile world, users want thin, sleek mobile devices and seek the same requirements for the chargers that go along with them. With GaN, gone are the days of the "brick" power supply,” said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems, "It's great to see Phihong design in GaN Systems in their AC adapters to achieve the small size and high power demanded by laptop users."
GaN Systems is showing Phihong’s 280W GaN charger and an array of GaN chargers for smartphone and laptop charging, up to 4X smaller than conventional chargers ranging from 45W to 280W at PCIM.
