The emergence of radio-frequency energy as a heat source in many new applications is becoming a reality. enabled by a new generation of high-efficiency and high-power transistors. Klaus Werner, Program Manager at NXP Semiconductors, in conjunction with Prof. H. Heuermann and Dr. A. Sadeghfam at Heuermann Hochfrequenztechnik (HHF), uses the example of an innovative prototype 200W microwave power generator that drives microplasmas with the potential to enable highly efficient next-generation car engines and also makes a spark plug sing!
