    Midea partners with NXP for new smart kitchen appliance Cooking will become smarter thanks to a new technology implemented in semiconductormicrowave heating devices.
    Domestic consumer household appliance maker Midea Group Co recently unveiled incollaboration with Netherlands-based NXP Semiconductors a smart kitchen appliance that ispowered by the latter's radio frequency (RF) cooking technology.
    The smart gadget, which made its debut at this year's IFA, a trade show for consumer electronicsand home appliance held in Berlin in September, is specifically developed as a 300 watt cookingdevice that is based on NXP's latest generation cooking component named MHT1004N.
    The RF component is a low-voltage solid state cooking transistor which creates and deliversenergy, enabling greater control over the heating process and allows the appliance to controlenergy in a closed loop manner for evenly heated food.
    "Midea and NXP have been cooperating for years to research and develop solutions for thefuture smart kitchen," said Wu Dong, senior director of RF products at NXP SemiconductorsAsia Pacific.
    "We're excited to team up with NXP and transform the conventional methods of cooking to solidstate," said Luan Chun, director of the appliances business unit innovation center at Midea. "Together, we've also jointly developed a standard system unit, which enables us to quicklyimplement new designs using a flexible, modular approach for future product developments."
    Paul Hart, executive vice-president and general manager of NXP's RF unit, said in a keynote atthe firm's latest tech forum that a joint laboratory specialized in collaboration to combineexpertise on next generation designs using semiconductor microwave heating technologies wasestablished by the two companies in 2012, aiming at build a partnership to transformconventional cooking methods to solid state and share visions to stand out in the smart kitchenappliance market.
    Dubbed NXPFTF Shenzhen 2016, the forum organized by the company on Thursday showed offthe latest tech breakthroughs and products that focused on China's Internet of Things market.
    Statistics from Beijing-based iResearch Consulting Group show that, with a market share of 36.6percent, the sales revenue of hardware products for smart home appliances in the country rankedtop position among the entire smart hardware industry, similar to the combination of the sales ofsmart wearables and smart transportations.
    According to another market consulting company Statista, China's smart home appliancesmarket scale reached 40.34 billion yuan ($6.05 billion), up 41 percent year-on-year. Thecompany predicts that in 2018, the market will witness a boom with the number reaching 130billion yuan.
