GaN stands for Gallium Nitride and it is an advanced technology developed and launched by a company called Navitas. The GaN Power IC (Integrated Circuit) was showcased at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) back in 2017.
What does it do?
GaN technology built into the IC is further integrated into the architecture of modern-day power adapters, and chargers. With its advanced power management, the GaN charger can deliver higher power to the battery of the smart device than a traditional silicon-based charger, hence faster-charging speed and less charging time required to fully charge your devices.
Not just faster, but smaller.
GaN technology revolutionised power adapters and fast charging for smart devices. Charging is 3 times faster and half the size and weight when compared to non-GaN chargers in the market today. Higher power and higher portability.
GaN in one sentence.
GaN (Gallium Nitride) is a technology that presents itself in the form of chargers' IC (Integrated Circuit), which enables higher charging power in a fraction of the volume in a charger.
