The Story Behind
Major breakthroughs in technology performance and power amplifier cost structure have positioned RF energy generated by solid state devices as a potentially disruptive technology in multiple, high-volume markets. Several existing applications have already benefited, by adopting the new technology to replace magnetrons, for example plasma lighting and many industrial applications.
A wealth of new applications are being enabled by this new technology, for example automotive plasma ignition, novel car lighting, hyperthermia treatment and other medical applications. The market adoption of this breakthrough technology is hampered by limited knowledge at the incumbent RF energy users.
pinkRF bridges the knowledge gap between end system functionality and the solid-state RF energy generation and control.
pinkRF has the insight to support these application developments through a network of strategic partners, access to key technologies, application know how, manufacturing know how , industrialization capability and cost roadmaps, which all play a part in enabling the quick adaptation of the solid state RF energy source in the various market segments.
The story behind the name pinkRF
In the earlier breakthrough days of solid state RF Energy the two founders were supporting the development of a new RF Energy system to potentially treat cancer. Seeing a patient with breast cancer being treated from very close by during the project had an emotional and lasting impact on them. At that moment they decided they were going to dedicate their efforts to make sure solid state RF Energy became a reality especially for this medical application.
When they eventually started pinkRF they used the word pink (a link to the Pink Ribbon breast cancer association) in the company name to remind them of that moment. Even today the team at pinkRF are supporting the development of a solid state RF Energy system that can treat cancer.
