Mr. David Lester, Technical Marketing

NXP Semiconductor

Chandler, AZ, USA 

+1-480-814-4461, david.lester@nxp.com

ABSTRACT

Recent advances in solid state power generation technology have enabled the design of a portable “microwave” oven.  This presentation will show how design challenges  were addressed to  realize the design of a cost effective 1/4 kw battery powered consumer appliance. Presentation will cover basics of solid state power generation technology and its application to consumer microwave heating market. Areas to be covered include RF generation, amplification, thermal management, power supply and power management.

BIOGRAPHY

David Lester has been defining and designing Radio Frequency consumer products for over 30 years. He has had a variety of RF product design and support positions with Motorola-Freescale-NXP RF groups since joining Motorola Semiconductor in 1998. He is currently in a technical marketing position defining devices and subsystems for industrial and consumer cooking applications. NXP’s RF cooking group is developing new and innovative solutions using RF power devices for cooking and related areas. Currently the group is designing and implementing high power, cost effective solutions for RF cooking and defrosting. David has 10 patents and is a member of the IEEE.
