Power management is changing rapidly. With the development of USB Type C power delivery (PD), up to 100 watts of power and data can be transmitted through the same cable. Today’s smart chargers are also evolving to feature more built-in intelligence, allowing power supplies to detect which electronic equipment is connected.
These advanced chargers can determine the most appropriate power conditions, with adequate voltage (5V, 9V, 12V or 20V) and current (1 to 5 amperes) to deliver the safest and most reliable charging. Chargers built with GaN can deliver outstanding power density in lightweight and portable formats.
