Just a few months back Freescale announced a disruptive new concept in order to replace your old magnetron-based kitchen microwave with a new solution: Solid state RF cooking. The idea is not completely new as similar concepts were introduced a couple years ago; however we might see such devices in mass production soon. Reason enough to take a closer look at the technology. The smart concept is using a mesh of RF transistors to transmit energy and heat up food. This new design offers significant advantages over traditional microwaves including lowerRead More
Drones! One of the hottest topics these days. Critically acclaimed because of their military use to in crisis areas and situations.
