Competitive analysis of Power Integrations’ GaN and silicon technology used in OPPO’s high power chargers.

SP20547-OPPO GaN & Si Super VOOC inbox fast chargers_3

The first GaN-based in-box fast charger has finally made it to the high-end smartphone market!

In order to further develop its fast charging technology, OPPO providesthe Reno Ace smartphone together with the GaN-based 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charger in the same box. The company claims that its new fast charger has the ability to fully charge a 4000mAh battery in around 30 minutes. To support such high power and speed while keeping sufficient cost-competitiveness, the charger features a GaN-based device from Power Integrations (PI), which is one of the main power device providers for the wall-charger market. The move from silicon technology to GaN technology for power as high as 65W results in lower cost per watt.

In this report, System Plus Consulting presents a deep analysis of two in-box fast chargers from OPPO. The 65W GaN-based charger that comes with the Reno Ace, and the 50W silicon-based charger featured in the Rx17 pro. A technical and cost comparison is provided between these two chargers and Anker’s PowerPort PD1 30W charger, which also uses a power device from PI. The impact of the GaN component is highlighted through the comparison.

This report provides a detailed bill of

material and manufacturing analysis for OPPO’s chargers. Moreover, it presents the supply chain and technical choices. The report gives a detailed physical analysis of the PI’s power devices and the fast charging integrated circuits used in each charger.

The report also estimates the production cost of all the components of each charger, including the printed circuit boards, integrated circuits and packages in detail. It includes exhaustive technology and cost comparisons of materials, package assemblies and power devices and their impact on the final manufacturing cost of the three chargers.
