Apple’s new 140W MacBook USB-C charger teardown #ReverseEngineer @Apple @SnazzyQ
The Apple’s new 140W MacBook USB-C charger has more RAM than the Apollo 11 lunar lander guidance computer and a 10x higher clock speed than the original Macintosh. ChargerLAB on YouTube does a teardown:
This is the brand new MacBook Pro 16 inch 140W fast charger, which is designed based on GaN technology. There is also a customized USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable. You have to use this cable to achieve 140W charging.
Many people are curious about the internal design, architecture of the first PD 3.1 GaN fast charger, and what kind of brand new components are inside. Today, we will test and teardown this charger to answer those questions.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
