The new appliance demonstrates NXP’s leadership in driving compelling new product innovations into the smart cooking market through solid state RF technology. NXP RF technology offers maximum power transfer with controllable energy to the food with less wasted heat. Making it better for the planet.

“NXP’s leading RF power output, high efficiency, and industry leading expertise has provided the platform to enable us to develop the Wayv Adventurer,” said Paul Atherton, CEO and Founder at Wayv. “Delivering innovative RF cooking appliances that provide more convenient and healthier food and beverage heating options to consumers are benefits we hope to bring to the marketplace. NXP technologies helps us deliver on those fronts. We’re proud to partner with NXP on driving this new product into the market.”

NXP’s RF module solution, which delivers 250W of RF power at high efficiency, combined with Wayv’s RF antenna, helps deliver excellent cavity efficiency for effective power transfer to the food. Since battery operated appliances currently have limited electrical power, the best possible efficiency is essential. NXP’s RF module solution delivers high efficiency power combined with Wayv’s high efficiency antenna solution which allows for multiple heating cycles before recharge. The technology platform includes NXP’s MKW40Z Kinetis microcontroller (MCU) with a 2.4 GHz signal generator, a MMA25312 pre-driver, MHT1008 driver and MHT1004 final stage amplifier into a single, integrated closed-loop module.

"The new Wayv Adventurer takes on-the-go smart cooking experiences to a new level,” said Dan Viza, director of product marketing for RF cooking at NXP. “We’re excited to work with Wayv and unveil this new innovation into the market.”
