Major breakthroughs in radio frequency power amplifier technology performance and cost structure have positioned RF energy generated by these solid state devices as a disruptive force in multiple high volume markets.
Several existing applications have already benefited by adopting the new technology to replace magnetrons e.g. plasma grow lighting and industrial heating and cooking.
A wealth of new applications are being enabled for example automotive plasma ignition, focused hyperthermia medical treatment, novel car lighting
With many more new applications expected to emerge.
