Navitas Gets Design Win With Dell

El Segundo-based gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductor developer Navitas Semiconductor said today that it has been selected by Dell, for inclusion in the Dell Latitude 9000-series laptops. Shipment volumes and expected financial impact of the design win were not announced. According to the company, two of its ICs are being used in Dell’s fast charge laptop adapters. The company says its ICs provide 50% energy savings and 3x faster charging. The company says the Dell 60W charger it is powering is 50 percent smaller and 25% lighter than silicon-based adapters, and have a 4x to 10x lower CO2 footprint.
