Navitas powers pioneering NIO phone
Navitas Semiconductor announced that NIO, a global new-energy vehicle maker, has released its inaugural smartphone, the NIO Phone with a powerful 66W fast charger featuring Navitas' next-generation gallium-nitride (GaN) GaNFast power ICs equipped with GaNSense technology.
This enhancement delivers flagship-level charging efficiency, providing end users with a better vehicle-centric mobile interconnection experience. New GaNFast ICs are replacing legacy silicon chips to enable next-gen fast-charging for mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.
The flagship NIO Phone features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, and boasts a 6.81” 2K variable refresh-rate curved screen, with the main, ultra-wide-angle, and 50M pixel periscope telephoto cameras. Using NIO Link panoramic-interconnection technology, the NIO Phone integrates smoothly and seamlessly with smart EVs and NIO's in-car system. With a single click, the driver can control over 30 functions, and equipped with ultra-wideband technology, it can completely replace traditional car keys.
To support such powerful and comprehensive features, the NIO Phone is equipped with a large 5,200mAh battery and an in-box GaNFast charger offering up to 66W of charging power. Measuring only 57 x 57 x 30mm (97.5cc), the NV6136 GaNFast power IC in a high-frequency quasi-resonant (HFQR) topology with loss-less current sensing and ultra-fast autonomous short-circuit protection, delivers power density of 1.03W/cc.
