Training Courses

As the RF Energy market continues to emerge, pinkRF offers specialized technical support and expertise. We offer a standard or customer specific training courses which will help you through the whole design process from concept to final product. We provide two standard training courses; a basic and an advanced module. We can always customize the training to your specific needs both timing an contentwise.

“We had a training and it was very helpful, we learned a lot. There is a lot of specialized knowledge in the company which is very useful for us.”

“We recently followed a training course at pinkRF which gave us a lot of insights and knowledge that we can immediately apply and use.”

RF Energy Basics Training

The RF Energy Basics training covers the basic understanding of RF Energy. The course is intended for non-RF electronic engineers and managers in general. Following the course will provide understanding to find your way in RF Energy with regard to your own system and suppliers interfaces. In the course we will discuss the following issues:

  • Safety
  • RF Energy Systems basics
      • Signal source, amplifier, technologies, architectures
      • Key parameters
  • RF Interaction with matter
      • Absorption, reflection, diffraction
  • Dielectric heating
  • Design flow
      • Product, process, applicator, RF frequency choice
  • Applicator basics
      • Homogeneity, electromagnetic energy distribution, number of sources
  • Introduction EM simulations
  • Q&A[/su_spoiler]

RF Energy Advanced Training

The RF Energy Advanced training covers an advanced understanding of RF Energy. The course is intended for RF electronic engineers and experienced managers. The course provides deep understanding of all components and strategy for designing your own RF Energy system per customer request. In the course we will discuss the following issues:

  • Solid state RF Energy Systems
      • Amplifiers
      • # of stages, gain, efficiency, power, bandwidth
      • Topologies and classes
      • Transistor, circulator, couplers, matching and matching networks
      • Signal sources (Oscillator, synthesizer, modulator, VGA)
      • Technologies (LDMOS, GaN, Vdmos)
      • Architecture
      • Single vs. multi-channel feed
      • Coherent vs. incoherent excitation
      • Power combining
  • RF interaction with matter
      • Micro- and macroscopic models describing the interaction
      • Reflection, diffraction, total reflection
      • Penetration- and absorption depth
  • Electromagnetic and thermal simulations of heating process
  • Dielectric heating vs frequency
      • Load dependence (shape, weight, permittivity position)
  • Applicator
      • Modes, types, homogeneity, electromagnetic energy distribution, number of sources
      • Cooking in multi-mode applicators, energy balances
      • Strategies to achieve homogeneous cooking / heating
      • Low-frequency applicators vs. high-frequency designs
  • Design flow
      • Product, process, applicator, RF frequency choice, EM simulations [/su_spoiler]
