With over 3,000 participants, the NXP Tech Forum event is one of the best conferences for engineers to connect and learn about new technologies. Solid-state heating generated a lot of talk at the event, with Goji’s demo oven taking center stage, both stimulating discussions on the exhibition floor and feeding our guests.
“We’re very excited to be here and feel the promising potential of solid-state cooking is starting to gain higher recognition in the industry” - Yuval Ben-Haim, President of Goji
In just six minutes, guests enjoyed a freshly prepared, high quality steak and potato dish, using Goji’s technology. The diverse international crowd participating at the event included senior managers from multinational companies, heads of R&D departments and enthusiastic engineers. Solid-state cooking represented a revolutionary technology with a very big promise to transform the lives of millions of people preparing food worldwide.
Rick Clemmer, NXP’s President and CEO, welcomed Goji and was impressed following his own first-hand experience with the technology. “These events are important as they help us engage with our key customers, suppliers and partners, as well as with industry-leading decision-makers, government officials and influencers,” said Rick in a subsequent interview.
“We’re very excited to be here and feel the promising potential of solid-state cooking is starting to gain higher recognition in the industry,” said Yuval Ben-Haim, President of Goji. “NXP is an extremely capable partner with whom we are very pleased to work on existing and next generation products.”
The most common question raised was “What is solid-state cooking?”. Solid-state cooking utilizes high power solid-state amplifiers which transmit radio wave energy to heat an object. Unlike the typical magnetrons in a microwave oven, the energy can be control accurately in frequency, amplitude and phase, and when combined with Goji’s technology, it can be used to cook food more uniformly and efficiently.
The second most common question was “When can I get one?”. Goji’s first residential oven partner will launch its Goji RF-powered oven in 2017.
RF cooking utilizes a high power solid-state amplifier which, as part of a complete RF module, transmits radio wave energy into an object to heat it. Unlike the magnetron in a microwave oven, the digital RF module can accurately control the frequency, amplitude and phase of the radio-waves. When combined with Goji’s proprietary closed-feedback sensing algorithm, the RF module enables more uniform and consistent cooking results, while shortening and simplifying the cooking process.
Goji develops and markets RF cooking technologies for household, commercial and industrial applications in the food industry. The novel Goji™ technology facilitates controlled and responsive heating, delivering unprecedented cooking performance. The company holds a broad IP portfolio, with over 200 issued and pending patents on its technology. Goji provides a full range of licensing, design and manufacturing services to commercial and white goods appliance manufacturers. For more information, visit www.gojifoodsolutions.com.
