Navitas’ Next-Gen GaN IC Powers OPPO’s Reno7 Pro ‘League of Leg-ends’™ Limited-Edition 50W ‘Cookie’ Fast Charger

Navitas and Powerland partner to deliver world’s thinnest, lightest 50W GaNFast charger

El Segundo, California: January 7th, 2022: Navitas Semiconductor announced today that its GaNFast™ gallium nitride (GaN) ICs power OPPO’s new 50W ultra-thin and ultra-fast ‘League of Legions’ limited-edition fast charger. This ‘collectable’ version of OPPO’s ground-breaking ‘cookie’ charger has an extraordinary thin and light body and an innovative ‘lanyard’ charging cable.

The charger case has a pure-black, ‘piano-paint’ luster, in line with the temperament of Riot Games’ ‘League of Legends’ on-line, fantasy role-playing game. The unique style is designed to attract the younger-generation League of Legends players. The new customized X-shaped protective back-clip and the “Jinx” character’s signature graffiti elements perfectly integrate the gaming elements of ‘League of Legends’ into the shape of the charger. In addition, the charging data cable appears in the form of a lanyard, giving this charger another layer of innovation. As light and compact as the original GaN charger, it is now even more fashionable and portable.

GaN is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than legacy silicon and enables up to 3x more power, 40% energy savings and 3x faster charging in half the size and weight. Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs integrate GaN power and drive plus protection and control to deliver simple, small, fast and efficient performance.

The tiny-yet-powerful OPPO cookie charger uses two, 2MHz-rated NV6115 GaNFast ICs in an active-clamp flyback (ACF) architecture with zero-voltage and zero-current switching for the highest efficiency. The breakthrough low-profile form-factor is achieved using a high-frequency planar transformer. At only 82 x 39 x 10.5 mm (33 cc), and a featherweight 55 g, the OPPO cookie is the world’s thinnest, lightest 50W fast-charger.

Jeff ZHANG, Chief Charging Technology Scientist of OPPO said on the product release: “We are very pleased to add ‘League of Legends’ game elements to the classic OPPO super-fast cookie charger. GaN is now once again integrated into this charger that has attracted much attention from mobile game fans. This charger brings consumers a light and fast charging experience, while allowing ‘League of Legends’ fans to show their unique personality.”

The ground-breaking ‘cookie’ charger was designed by Powerland Technology. Co-founder Dr. Qiu YANG stated “Powerland has always insisted on integrating excellent innovative technology like GaNFast power ICs with rich product-development experience, design and production. The ‘50W’ cookie charger is the crystallization of our continuous innovation. We look forward to continuing our cooperation with OPPO and Navitas Semiconductor to continue to bring amazing charging products to consumers.”

“Navitas is very honored to once again assist the release of OPPO 50W ultra-thin and ultra-fast cookie charger through the excellent design of Powerland Electronics,” said Charles (Yingjie) ZHA, VP and GM of Navitas China. “Our joint goal is to continue to explore gallium nitride’s charging potential, to create smaller, lighter, greener and more convenient charging.”

How an SoM accelerates and simplifies processor-based designs

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

If you're comfortable working with integrated circuits that have four to 48 pins, building a custom printed circuit board (PCB) for a new product might make sense. But when your design is complex—think: processor with more than 300 pins, DDR memory, eMMC, complex physical layout, and all the electrical considerations that go with it—a simpler, lower-risk, off-the-shelf product is often a better solution. Discover the benefits of a system-on-module (SoM) for complex, high-pin-count PCB designs.

Flexible Power for a Smart World

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and CUI Inc.

Safety, EMC compliance, your project schedule, and your BOM cost are all important factors when you are considering what power supply you will need for your next design. You also need to think about form factor, which capacitor will work best, and more. But if you’re not a power supply expert, this can get overwhelming in a hurry. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ron Stull from CUI Inc. about CUI PBO Single Output Board Mount AC-DC Power Supplies, what this ac/dc core brings to the table in terms of form factor, reliability and performance, and why this kind of solution may give you the flexibility you need to optimize your next design.
