Navitas’ 160W ultra-fast charger powers OnePlus 10T smartphone

Navitas Semiconductor of El Segundo, CA, USA and Dublin, Ireland says that global mobile technology company OnePlus has once again chosen GaNFast power ICs to ultra-fast-charge its new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 10T.

The new OnePlus 10T features the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4nm) chipset, a 120Hz FHD + AMOLED display screen, and 50MP main camera, with Cryo-Velocity Vapor cooling, all driven by a 4800mAhr battery. The 150W-capable SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition delivers up to a day’s power after just 10 minutes of charging, with a full charge (from 1-100%) taking only 19 minutes.

New York was the focus for the 10T’s debut, with a special launch event at the Gotham Hall, and a Navitas-OnePlus co-operative promotion on the Nasdaq Tower in Times Square.

“From the 10R launched in July, to the 10T in August, and onwards to future designs, we expect to continue our in-depth collaboration with Navitas to deliver ultra-portable, ultra-fast user experiences,” says OnePlus’ chief operating officer Kinder Liu.

GaNFast ICs integrate GaN power with drive, control, protection and sensing to enable 3x faster charging with up to 40% energy savings in only half the size and weight of legacy silicon solutions, it is reckoned. Using an NV6125 GaN IC for the high-frequency boost power factor correction (PFC), followed by a high-frequency quasi-resonant (QR) flyback converter, the 160W charger measures just 58mm x 57mm x 30mm (99cc) with power density over 1.6W/cc.

“Both OnePlus and Navitas focus on more speed and more power with cool operation,” says David Carroll, Navitas’ senior VP of worldwide sales. “OnePlus is a very innovative company and appreciates the leading-edge efficiency, high quality and world-leading environmental benefits of GaNFast power ICs, as each one shipped saves 4kg of CO2 versus legacy silicon chips,” he adds.
