With the breakthrough of GaN technology and cost control, in addition to the RF microwave field, it has also been widely used in consumer electronics and other areas, among which fast charger is an example. The most intuitive experience of a charger using a GaN power device is that it is small in size and light in weight. It also has more significant advantages than ordinary chargers in terms of heat generation and efficiency conversion, significantly improving the user experience.
In October 2018, ANKER released the world's first USB PD GaN charger, the PowerPort Atom PD1, which is about the same size as Apple's 5W charger but can output up to 27W of power, attracting attention. Subsequently, in addition to manufacturers specializing in charging heads, many consumer electronics manufacturers also focused on GaN charging technology. OPPO Reno Ace, released last October, comes standard with a GaN charger, which can achieve 65W super flash charge, becoming the world's first mobile phone with a standard GaN charger.
Last month, at the new product launch conference of Xiaomi, Xiaomi also launched a compact charger, using NV6115 and NV6117 GaNFast power ICs from Navitas, with a volume of 56.3x30.8x30.8mm, which is officially stated as the standard adapter size Half of it, which is the Xiaomi GaN charger Type-C 65W-again, the application of GaN materials on chargers has caused the attention of the consumer electronics industry.
From the perspective of the entire consumer electronics industry, GaN has received attention and input from mainstream consumer electronics manufacturers around the world, and GaN is also rapidly erupting with chargers. In January this year, at the CES exhibition held in the United States, there were as many as 66 GaN chargers exhibited, including 18W, 30W, 65W, 100W and other powers, as well as a new category of super docks, which are suitable for mobile phones, tablets, pens All-around charging needs of electricity. In terms of overall performance and cost, GaN is also expected to become the mainstream choice for fast charging devices in the consumer electronics field in the future.
As users' demands for the versatility and portability of chargers increase, the size of the GaN fast charge market will increase rapidly in the future. It is estimated that the global GaN charger market size will be 2.3 billion yuan in 2020, and will quickly rise to 63.8 billion yuan in 2025. The compound annual growth rate is as high as 94%.
It is worth mentioning that under this market trend, some important semiconductor industries have also aggressively cut into the GaN market. GaN is not only in the field of chargers. With GaN's power performance, frequency performance, and excellent heat dissipation performance, it can also be used in many areas with high power and frequency requirements, such as 5G base stations, autonomous driving, and military radar.
