Webinar Overview

RF Energy is the next big growth area for Solid State RF Power. This domain exists of several new applications such as whitegoods [Ovens, Defrosting, Drying], Plasma Lighting segment and already today the Industrial Heating segment where there is a value proposition with Solid State RF Power vs. existing Magnetrons. 

This webinar describes the RF Energy market as seen by Ampleon. Then the focus will be on Industrial Heating segment, where we are actively replacing Magnetron components, both in 915 Mhz as well as 2.4 Ghz. Ampleon will discuss technology value proposition for replacement of Magnetrons. Also the product offering of Ampleon will be explained, as well as the development tools we have available.
