GaN power adapter drives 50 percent cut in size
CUI has launched two 160W GaN desktop AC-DC power adapter series, cutting the size by 48 percent. This follows a similar reduction for the 200W GaN power adapter series.
The SDI160G-U and SDI160G-UD 160W GaN power adapter families are designed for a wide range of portable industrial and consumer products, where efficient power is needed in a lighter, smaller package.
The SDI160G-U and SDI160G-UD comply with UL/EN/IEC 62368-1 requirements. The adapters also meet the current average efficiency and no-load power specifications mandated by the US Department of Energy (DoE) under the Level VI standard and the European Union’s (EU) CoC Tier 2 directive for universal input voltage ranges. The no-load power consumption is down to 150 mW, and universal input voltage ranges from 90 to 264 Vac.
The SDI160G-U series offers a three prong (C14) inlet, while the SDI160G-UD features a two prong (C8) inlet and measure 161 x 54.2 x 33.2 mm (6.33 x 2.13 x 1.3 in), 48 percent smaller than the silicon version.
The SDI160G-U and SDI160G-UD GaN power adapter families are available immediately with prices starting at $122.57 per unit at 5 pieces through distribution.
