Using solid-state generated and amplified RF-power for applications including cooking, warming and lighting brings a completely new user experience to the respective applications. This is mainly due to the better controllability of amplifiers, when compared to magnetrons.
RF-power amplifiers in RF energy applications have a lot of similarities with amplifiers used in communication industries. The main differences however are the additional higher power levels and the focus on power use instead of signal quality and linearity. This technology change has also a significant impact on RF connectivity.
