|Who:||Powerics, a Hyderabad-based stealth mode startup developing one of India’s first GaN powered chargers, and Transphorm, a pioneer in and global supplier of high reliability, high performance GaN power conversion products.|
Preview of Powerics’ GaN-based power charger—a 65W USB-PD charger with two output ports (Type C & Type A) delivering a power density of 16.84 Watts per cubic inch.
The charger uses Transphorm’s TP65H300G4LSG device, a 650V 240 mꭥ SuperGaN® FET in a PQFN88package, and Silanna Semiconductor’s SZ1130 ACF controller. Notably, Powerics’ product developmentpartner MosChip Technologies managed development of the PCBA and enclosure design (including mechanical accessories) as well as design validation and certification.
|Why:||Gallium Nitride (GaN) is the wide bandgap technology powering a broad spectrum of next generation power conversion systems. Specifically, Transphorm’s GaN platform is known to deliver up to 99% power efficiency, with 50% higher power density and up to 20% lower overall power system costs when compared to alternative silicon-based solutions. As a result, a GaN-based power IC serves as a highly attractive power conversion solution for mobile fast chargers and other consumer electronics seeking reliable, fast, and powerful performance in small packages.|
