Power Electronics

Transphorm, a maker of hi-res, high voltage GaN semiconductors has confirmed that its GaN FETs are used in Corsair’s new AX1600i Power Supply Unit (PSU). Corsair supplies the gaming community with high-performance products used in custom PCs. The company’s latest product establishes a new class of AC-to-DC PSUs, as it is the first to use GaN and achieves 99 percent efficiency. Transphorm’s GaN increases the PSU’s power output by 6.5 percent in an 11 percent smaller package at the same temperature. The AX1600i uses Transphorm’s TPH3205WS 650V FETs in a bridgeless totem-pole power factor correction (PFC) — the topology that complements GaN’s performance and efficiency potential. With an increase of 6 percent within this topology, Corsair’s PSU efficiency now earns a better-than an 80 PLUS Titanium rating.
