Ugreen using Navitas’s GaNFast ICs in first 5-port 300W GaN desktop charger
Hong Kong-based Ugreen (which provides charging accessories) has partnered with gallium nitride (GaN) power IC and silicon carbide (SiC) technology firm Navitas Semiconductor of Torrance, CA, USA to launch what is reckoned to be the world’s first 5-port 300W GaN desktop charger – the Ugreen Nexode 300W Desktop Charger.
“Navitas has been working closely with UGREEN for a long time,” notes Charles Zha, VP & general manager of Navitas China. “This first 300W GaN desktop charger based on LLC structure can realize such astonishing power density with such small size,” he adds.
“This high-powered charger incorporates Navitas’s GaNFast chip and Ugreen’s product design innovation,” says Evan Li, vice president of Ugreen. “We look forward to strengthening our partnership with Navitas.”
A new addition to the Ugreen Nexode series, the Nexode 300W Desktop Charger is a high-power device that can fast charge five devices simultaneously: four USB-C ports and one USB-A port. The single port output can deliver up to a maximum of 140W, which is sufficient to charge a 16” MacBook Pro from 0% to 56% in just 30 minutes, suiting the rapid charging of laptops, tablets, phones etc. The charger supports PD 3.1 and QC3.0, along with other fast-charging protocols including PD/QC/SCP/FCA/AFC.
