Why GaN 06 – Applications: USB Type-C™ PD Quick Chargers

This video will cover USB Type-C PD quick charger applications and will explain the benefits of designing with EPC eGaN FETs and ICs. Demanding applications for USB Type-C PD quick chargers and adaptors such as smart phones, laptops and gaming consoles that require the highest power density for fast charging and small size. Examples of how GaN enables miniaturization, very high efficiency, and excellent thermal performance are presented. Typical design examples of active clamp fly-back topologies that operate in Continuous Current Mode (CCM) or discontinuous current mode (DCM) using eGaN technology is presented.
