GaNFast, from Navitas, is helping charge the OnePlus 11 5G. The OnePlus 11 5G is the flagship new smartphone, having a 100W SUPERVOOC charger, which is built around an NV6134 GaNFast IC.
The GaNFast IC also offers GaN Power and drive, plus control, sensing, and protecting during high-frequency, quasi-resonant (HFQR) topology.
The design allows for three times faster charging, and energy savings of up to 40%. This comes in a reduced size and weight for the class and is compared to other legacy silicon solutions. The small 55x55x28 mm (85cc) chargers weigh only 112g and can reach a 1.18W/cc-power density.
The results have shown that charging the smartphone’s 5000 mAh from 1 to 50% takes approximately 10 minutes, and a full 100% charge takes approximately 25 minutes.
Navitas is now a key partner, working in parallel with Google, Hasselblad, Dolby, and Snapdragon with the official launch of the OnePlus 11 5G. OnePlus and Navitas have been working closely to develop the GaNFast charger and release it into mass production.
“We continue to push the boundaries, to provide the ultimate fast charging experience to our users.” says Mr. Kinder Liu, OnePlus COO and Head of R&D. “Our strong collaboration with Navitas has allowed us to provide an advanced charger that not only delivers power quickly and efficiently to the high-capacity battery built into the OnePlus 11 5G but also keeps charger size and weight to an absolute minimum.”
“The relationship with OnePlus continues to go from strength to strength, says Navitas founder and CEO, Gene Sheridan. “We are honored that our technology has once again been selected by OnePlus and excited to have been invited to play a part in the official launch of the OnePlus 11 5G.”
The OnePlus 11 5G is the latest smartphone from the company. It is running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and includes a 3rd Generation Hasselblad Camera.
The OnePlus was launched on February 7th in New Delhi and is available through the OnePlus website found here.
