Navitas Semiconductor to Showcase its GaN Fast Chargers at CES 2022


At CES 2022, Navitas Semiconductor will showcase its plans to expand beyond mobile GaN fast chargers into markets related to solar, data center and electric vehicles (EVs). GaN is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than legacy silicon and enables up to 3x more power and 3x faster charging in half the size and weight.

The Navitas GaNFast power ICs integrates GaN power and drive - as well as protection and control - to deliver simple, small, fast and efficient performance. In mobile fast and ultrafast charging, Navitas is used in 8 out of 11 flagship smartphone charger models (including those from Xiaomi, Oppo, Lenovo, Realme and Vivo) and fast-charging laptop adapters (from Dell, Lenovo, LG, Asus, Amazon, etc) with over 160 charger models in production as of now. The display at CES features Xiaomi’s world’s smallest 120 W ultrafast charger using Navitas’ latest GaNFast with GaNSense technology ICs. It charges the Note 11 Pro+ smartphone from 0 to 100 percent in just 17 minutes.

At CES 2022, Navitas will reveal how GaNFast technology has now been supercharged to address the challenges of next-generation solar, data center and EV fast-charging applications.

“Today, only about 15 % of our world’s electrical energy comes from sustainable sources, with the balance dependent on fossil fuels” said Gene Sheridan, Co-founder and CEO at Navitas Semiconductor. “It’s great to be back at CES to showcase how GaN makes electrical energy faster, more efficient and lower cost, and accelerates the transition to clean, electricity-based energy – for example, we expect EV adoption of GaN will accelerate the worldwide transition from internal combustion engine to EVs by up to 3 years, saving 20 % of road sector CO2 emissions by 2050.”

In-person CES attendees can discover GaN technology, the speed of GaNFast chargers, and see the future of next-generation applications while they have a chance to win a GaNFast charger or even enter to win a Tesla Model 3 Performance worth over $60,000.

“The ‘GaNFast Giveaway’ activities are the fun side of CES and we expect to draw huge crowds to experience GaNFast technology” said Stephen Oliver, VP Corporate Marketing and Investor Relations at Navitas Semiconductor. “Visitors can win GaNFast chargers from Spigen, Baseus, UGREEN, Angry Miao and UIBI every 30 minutes, enter to win a Tesla, and meet the GaN twin mascots – Gallie and Nitro – at their US tradeshow debut!”

CES runs from 5-8th January 2022 in Las Vegas, NV, and the Navitas booth is located in the LVCC, Central Hall, #15958.
