Coordinator Comheat Microwave AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 697 507
Project duration March 2011 - February 2014
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Replace the magnetron in the microwave oven with a solid state amplifier for higher efficiency, smaller size and comparable cost

Results and expected effects

A more energy efficient Microwave oven

Approach and implementation

A new solid state amplifier based on a new combination of material for implementing the switching device( LDMOS on silicon film on poly SiC. A fallback was implementing the switching device on high resistivity silicon. As the first option failed se above it was fortunate to have the fallback which looks very promising.
