Navitas GaN IC Powers New Vivo Smartphone
GaNFast power IC with GaNSense technology delivers iQOO's fastest, smallest 120W charger
Navitas has announced that its next-generation GaNFast power IC drives the 120W ultra-fast charger supplied 'in-box' with Vivo's iQOO-brand flagship iQOO 9 Pro mobile phone.
The 9 Pro's 4,700 mAhr battery charges from 0-100 percent in 19 minutes, and at 60.5 x 52.5 x28.8 mm (92 cc), the charger is 26 percent smaller than the previous generation, reaching 1.3 W/cc power density. It weights 135g.
Vivo's director of charger development, Xiaohong Zhang commented on the release of the product: “We are excited to use Navitas Semiconductor's autonomous, next-generation GaN pow-er ICs in the new 120W ultra-fast mini charger to power vivo's iQOO-brand flagship model, the iQOO 9 Pro. By successfully integrating Navitas' new GaNFast technology into this mobile phone charger, we will bring a lighter and faster charging experience to iQOO consumers and enhance the consumer experience in all aspects."
Navitas' GaNSense technology integrates real-time fast sensing of system parameters, including current and temperature, and achieves patent-pending lossless current-sensing. Integrated GaNSense products are said to be six times faster than discrete GaN power chips, and take only 30 ns from detection to protection.
"Navitas is honoured to help vivo's iQOO 9 Pro launch with this 120W super mini ultra-fast charger. GaNFast power ICs with GaNSense technology enable significant upgrades in speed, weight and power density," said Gene Sheridan, Navitas' CEO and co-founder.
