Philips Fast Charger Uses GaN Systems FET
Multi-Port 65W fast charger uses GaN technology to charge three digital devices simultaneously while supplying power to three 220V devices
GaN Systems has announced that the Philips SPS2316G/93, a 2C1A 65W GaN charger, features GaN Systems power transistors.
This novel charger includes three AC outlets and three USB ports eliminating the need for multiple chargers. Performance tests show it can charge three digital devices simultaneously while also supplying power to three 220V devices, such as speakers, TVs, fans, ultra-high-power chargers, and more, making it an essential gadget for home use and business travel.
The Philips charger highlights a modern hexagonal design and presents major improvements from the previous product model (Philips 2C1A 18W) in size, power, and charging times. GaN has become the technology of choice to deliver these benefits.
The charger meets high-power needs of multiple device charging in a small form factor. It is 75 percent smaller than legacy solutions at 61x65X65 mm with a maximum output power of 2500W. USB interfaces support a wide range of voltages and 65W (USB-C) and 60W (USB-A) high-power fast charging protocols.
To achieve its performance and power density, the Philips charger uses GaN Systems' 650V E-mode GaN power transistor (GS-065-011-1-L). This FET is in a small 5×6 mm PDFN package and offers low junction-to-case thermal resistance, which results in ultra-high switching frequency and efficiency output.
GaN Systems says its EZDrive implementation is combined with the ON Semiconductor NCP1342 controller to simplify the charger power design and avoid 'double-drive'.
