Navitas’ GaNFast Power ICs used by HYPER in smallest 100W 4-port wall charger

Navitas Semiconductor Inc of El Segundo, CA, USA has announced its partnership with California-based HYPER by Sanho Corporation to introduce the HyperJuice 100W 4-port charger with GaNFast power IC technology to achieve what is reckoned to be the world’s smallest and lightest portable form-factor.

Founded in 2014, Navitas introduced what it claimed to be the first commercial gallium nitride (GaN) power ICs. The firm says that its proprietary ‘AllGaN’ process design kit (PDK) monolithically integrates GaN power field-effect transistors (FETs) with GaN power, analog and logic circuits, enabling faster charging, higher power density and greater energy savings for mobile, consumer, enterprise, eMobility and new energy markets.

Measuring only 85.3mm x 60.8mm x 28.9mm (150cc), the HyperJuice 100W is powerful enough to charge two 15” Macbooks simultaneously (via the 2x USB-C), with flexibility for two more mobile devices via the additional two USB-A ports.

“We wanted to make the smallest, most flexible 100W charger ever, so the circuit board and components are laid out in the most compact and space-efficient manner using only the industry’s most efficient components that can deliver the best performance,” says Daniel Chin, CEO of HYPER by Sanho Corporation. “GaNFast technology enables 45% lower energy loss than the old, slow silicon chargers in the market today, and for the ultimate in portability, at only 208g, it’s 50% lighter than competition too,” he adds.

The HyperJuice 100W uses power-sharing technology to deliver optimal charging to a vast array of multiple devices, from watches and air-pod chargers all the way to a single 100W for the new Apple 16” Macbook. Either of the two USB-C outputs can deliver the maximum 100W as specified by the USB Power Delivery (PD) specification, with the two USB-A sockets providing up to 18W each for lower power, quick-charge or legacy systems. Capable of worldwide AC voltage input, the HyperJuice is supplied with ‘snap-fit’ AC adapters (UK, EU/Korea, AU) to support the international explorer and business traveler without additional bulky, heavy converters.

“As shown by the $1.5m Kickstarter backing, confidence in the 100W HyperJuice is extremely high,” comments Navitas’ CEO Gene Sheridan.
