During the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016, May 22-27, 2016, Dr. Klaus Werner, executive director of the RF Energy Alliance (RFEA), will showcase the current state of the Alliance and the impact the organization has made in its first two years.
RFEA, whose membership has tripled since its formation in 2014, is breaking down barriers to wide-market adoption by collaborating on methods that reduce costs and complexities of solid-state RF energy (SSRFE) systems. Recent global industry leaders to become members include Panasonic, Miele, Cellencor and Passive Plus, Inc. Prominent research university, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, has also joined the Alliance.
Additionally, the RFEA recently announced the publication of its first specification, the “RF Power Amplifier (PA) Roadmap: Residential Appliances.” The roadmap sets over 40 technical parameters for five PA module generations targeting consumer cooking applications.
“SSRFE specifications and engineering roadmaps are essential to the advancement of the RF power and heating industry. By addressing the necessary economical, technological and regulatory challenges, we believe that this technology will successfully penetrate high volume, consumer-oriented markets in the very near future,” says Dr. Klaus Warner, executive director of the RF Energy Alliance. “In fact, we’re excited to have already observed multiple companies announcing SSRFE solutions that are leveraging our guidelines.”
Ampleon, a founding member of the RFEA and a leading developer of SSRFE applications, will host the Alliance at their IMS2016 booth 2149.
