Baseus GaN5 Pro charger digital power supply
Officially, a digital power supply is an energy conversion system. These systems apply digital control techniques to power management applications. It includes monitoring, communication and supervisory functions as an extension of the main digital control loop. Also, it can combine these functions with the main analogue control loop. The digital power supply reserves an upgraded interface. If a larger compatible power device or protocol chip appears in the later stage, it can realize the role of “additional development based on the existing scheme to surpass the existing capabilities of the product”.
For consumers, the delay and interference problems that cannot be avoided by analogue control can be avoided through data processing. Thus, the power control can be more stable, wider as well as more responsive.
Gallium nitride chargers are becoming increasingly popular in the smartphone industry. Many brands like Xiaomi, Meizu, Apple, Nubia and others already have GaN chargers. These chargers support multiple charging capacities. A single GaN charger can support 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 11V/3A, 12V/2.9A, 15V/2.33A, 20V/1.75A and other output gears.
When two devices are charging at the same time, a GaN charger can permit a new generation of dynamic power distribution strategies. This means that when you plug in two devices, it will automatically adjust the power distribution. The larger device will get larger power input while the smaller one will get a small power input.
