Anker chooses Infineon tech for chargers
Hybrid flyback controller XDP combined with CoolGaN IPS enables Anker to achieve higher efficiency and power density
Anker has chosen Infineon’s next-generation Hybrid flyback controller XDP and the CoolGaN integrated power stage for fast chargers above 100 W.
Infineon's combined HFB controller XDP combines a digital power controller XDPS2201 and the CoolGaN IPS 600 V (IGI60F1414A1L) for high-efficiency and high-power density charger and adapter designs.
“By combining Infineon's hybrid flyback controller with an integrated CoolGaN device in Anker's new charging lineup, we achieved an outstanding system-level efficiency beyond 95 percent,” said Adam White, division president of Infineon’s Power and Sensor Systems Division.
“This architecture reduces energy loss by 21 percent compared to other charging solutions. It is the first time that Infineon's HFB controller and CoolGaN IPS devices are combined and applied commercially in the consumer electronics market.”
“GaN has completely changed the way we charge our electronics by delivering superior power transfer efficiency, faster-charging speeds and improved portability to our chargers,” said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations.
