Transphorm’s Gen III JEDEC-Qualified GaN to Power Wentai’s New 1.6 kW Titanium ATX PC Gaming Power Supply

Share

Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability, first JEDEC- and AEC-Q101 qualified high-voltage (HV) Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today confirmed that Taiwanese Original Equipment Manufacturer Wentai Technology Corporation has developed a Titanium ATX gaming power supply series called Aidan. The flagship product, the Aidan-T1616, uses Transphorm’s TP65H050WS Gen III 50 milliohm GaN FET in an interleaved CCM boost PFC. The result is a fully-modular, low-noise 1616 W 80 PLUS® Titanium power supply unit (PSU) with close to 95 percent efficiency.

The Aidan ATX PSU series targets consumer computing markets requiring ultra-high power such as PC gaming, Esports, artificial intelligence (AI), and cryptocurrency mining. When compared to Wentai’s Silicon-based 1.28 kW PSU, the Aidan-T1616 offers 328 W more power and approximately one percent higher efficiency at 50 percent full load—all within the same form factor. This equates to a 20 percent increase in power density.

The high-performant PC market uniquely serves use cases such as immersive gaming, artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual currency mining that requires a large amount of reliable power in comparison to everyday PC use,” said Aidan Liao, Senior RD Director, Wentai. “GaN provided the right technological advantage for us to conceive the Aidan PSU’s design to answer that need. Transphorm’s GaN provided the right quality, reliability and performance advantage for us to ultimately deliver on our vision with a top-quality, fairly priced power supply.”

Wentai’s power system development project occurred over the course of 18 months. Throughout that time, the company worked with Transphorm’s regional application support team whose positive reputation, according to Liao, was another influencing factor behind Wentai choosing Transphorm’s GaN devices.

Scheduled for formal release in early 2020, the Aidan-1616 will be demonstrated in Wentai’s Computex exhibit in Hall 1-1F, Booth Number I1307. The Aidan product line will expand to include PSUs offering various wattages, including 777 W, 888 W, 1111 W, 1288 W, and 1388 W.
