2x smaller 160W desktop PSU from FiDUS Power features Gallium Nitride SwitchThe new class-leading power supply is 2x smaller than competing products thanks to its cutting-edge design which incorporates gallium nitride switching technology.
Designers of portable equipment and instrumentation in markets including IT, telecoms and datacomms, medical, test and measurement and security will welcome the exceptionally small size of the new FiDUS GDA160 external power supply. This sleek, modern and very efficient power unit will help reduce overall end-product package sizes and improve logistics with increased storage and shipping densities.

GDA160 AC-DC power adapters are available qualified to IEC equipment class I (earthed) or II (double insulated) (C14/C6 and C8 power inlet). The C8 inlet model is 11mm shorter than the C14 model to accommodate the IEC input mould. Actual sizes are C14/C6: 6.33 x 2.12 x 1.3“(161 x 54 x 33mm) C8: 5.9 x 2.12 x 1.3” (150 x 54 x 33mm).
The ultra-compact size of the FiDUS GDA160 is due to the use of gallium nitride (GaN) switching semiconductors which are much more efficient than conventional silicon devices, produce less waste heat, and operate at higher frequencies allowing the size of magnetic and other components to be reduced, resulting in a power supply design with a much increased power density.
The FiDUS Power GDA160 future-proofs new designs by meeting the latest energy efficiency legislation, Department of Energy Level VI & Energy Related Products Tier 2, and latest general safety approval EN62368-1. The units offer global approvals for use in Japan (PSE), China (CCC) and Taiwan (BSMI) as well as the Americas (UL) and Europe (CE).
Mark Gibbons, Engineering Manager at FiDUS Power, comments: “This new addition to our ultra-compact external power supply range complements our recently launched 200W GDA200 model and increases the options available to designers of portable products, offering a great deal more value for money and design flexibility. We will continue to grow this family of ultra-compact external desk top products with a 120W, 250W & 300W unit complete with their medical variants.”
