Navitas’ strategy aligns with Xiaomi’s in many critical ways; that business success comes from technological innovation, corporate social responsibility, and sustainable development goals including education, climate, and life on land and in the oceans

Navitas Semiconductor Limited today announced that their new ‘Little Star GaN’ twin mascots were launched to an excited crowd at the Xiaomi Technology and Investment Day in Beijing on September 25th.

Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a next-generation power semiconductor technology that runs up to 100x faster than old, slow silicon chips, with dramatic improvements in energy savings and power density. When ‘Little Star Gallium’ (XiaoJia) and ‘Little Star Nitrogen’ (XiaoDan) work together on ‘Planet Navitas’, we learn how GaN and fast charging not only contribute to a better consumer experience but also deliver higher efficiency and reduced pollution across the whole power electronics world, from smartphones and laptops to high-power data centers, eMobility and new energy applications.

The ‘Little Star GaN’ twins will feature in educational videos and articles across Navitas’ GaNFast website and social media platforms, and will make personal live appearances at special events.

Navitas was among a select group of partners invited to the Xiaomi Technology and Investment Day, held at the Beijing headquarters. Xiaomi visitors to the Navitas display included Chairman and CEO Mr. Jun LEI, President and CFO Mr. Xiang WANG, and VP Investment Mrs. Changsu SUN.

“I was very happy to see such a large crowd excited by the ‘Little Star GaN’ twins,” said Mr. Lei. “Navitas’ strategy aligns with Xiaomi’s in many critical ways; that business success comes from technological innovation, corporate social responsibility, and sustainable development goals including education, climate, and life on land and in the oceans.”

Mr. Lei had previously announced the world’s smallest 65W USB-C fast charger using Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs at the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 PRO launch.

“Navitas is honored to have Xiaomi as an investor and have this exclusive platform to launch the ‘Little Star GaN’ twins, said Mr. Charles (Yingjie) ZHA, Vice President and General Manager of Navitas China. “The long lines to meet XiaoDan and XiaoJia showed that the Xiaomi team are environmentally aware and eager to know more about how GaN can not only enable 3x faster charging in half the size and weight, but also help us all to reduce energy waste and pollution for a cleaner world.”
