Ampleon (Formally NXP) RF semiconductor applications lab in Rhode Island

Worked on and off for NXP from 2012 ~ 2017... Dis is pic i took working late on night in the lab..

Worked on various solid state microwave application demos, reference systems, an instruments.. Most exciting and longest lasting project was for a Japanese research company who required a high power (1500W+) solid state pulsed microwave energy pump (which we named Sango, after the goddess of lightning) used for exciting the air/fuel mixture into a plasma state inside an internal combustion engine immediately before ignition in order to get the final 20% or so of possible efficiency during the burn..Was rly fun,!! Tho i did sorta enjoy creating the microwave oven cooking demo as well - but that project although intended to have a full featured standard microwave style interface ended up being controlled via an external laptop(, blah.. Cooking demo got behind due to Sango demands, in hindsight the cooking demo had a much larger market tho to us engineering types seemed sorta simple and obvious - the plasma energy pump stuff got moar attention. heh
