RF Energy Alliance progress and growth highlighted at EuMW

At European Microwave Week (EuMW 2015) in Paris, France (6–11 September), the status of the RF Energy Alliance (RFEA) is being presented by its executive director Dr Klaus Werner in one of six brief sessions hosted by exhibiting member companies Huber+Suhner, MACOM, NXP Semiconductors and Rogers Corp.

Audiences will learn about RFEA's vision, goals and development status of the:

  • Q4 2015: RF Amplifier Specification, defining amplifier size, component specifications, cost targets, and paths to efficiencies greater than 65% versus standard high-power amplifier (HPA) modules.
  • Q1 2016: System Integration Guidelines, defining the small-signal RF generator and controls, power supply units (PSUs), thermal parameters, module interfaces and system integration guidelines.

Additional takeaways include power amplifier capabilities and system design overviews, solid-state RF energy's measurable impact on various applications, and the importance of standardization.

Membership growth

The RF Energy Alliance was founded in September 2014 by E.G.O. Elektro-Gerätebau GmbH, Huber+Suhner, ITW, NXP Semiconductors, Rogers Corp and Whirlpool Corp affiliate Whirlpool R&D. The alliance is dedicated to presenting solid-state RF energy's potential as a clean, highly efficient and controllable heat and power source. RFEA has now also announced four new members:

  • Cardiff University: UK university with research expertise in RF power amplifier design and RF energy applications.
  • Comba Telecom: a supplier of infrastructure and wireless enhancement solutions that extend mobile operators' and enterprises' wireless communication networks.
  • RJR Polymers: a supplier of air-cavity liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) electronic packaging and pre-applied epoxies solutions, enabling communications infrastructure, RF power and RF energy applications with higher frequencies and better thermal performance at an overall lower cost.
  • WIN Semiconductors: a provider of pure-play gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN) wafer foundry services for the wireless, infrastructure and networking markets.
