The DA8801 together with Dialog’s patented digital Rapid Charge power conversion controllers will enable more efficient, smaller and higher power density adapters compared to traditional Silicon field-effect transistor (FET) based designs. Dialog is initially targeting the fast charging smartphone and computing adapter segment with its GaN solutions, where it already enjoys more than 70% market share with its power conversion controllers, the company noted. Dialog’s DA8801 half-bridge integrates building blocks, such as gate drives and level shifting circuits, with 650V power switches to deliver an optimized solution that reduces power losses by up to 50%, with up to 94% power efficiency. The product allows for a seamless implementation of GaN, avoiding complex circuitry, needed to drive discrete GaN power switches. Dialog’s use of GaN technology on its DA8801 half-bridge ...
