This paper presents, for the first time the theoretical introduction and experimental validation of the "Continuous Class-F Mode Power Amplifier" that provides for a new design space for the design of high efficiency and broadband power amplifiers. Starting from the standard class-F mode, this work shows that it is possible to maintain(More)
After calibration, since the systematic imperfections of the envelop load-pull (ELP) components were now fully accounted for, the user is able to rapidly set accurate terminations with full Smith chart coverage. This functionality has been achieved by optimizing the hardware configuration of the envelop load-pull concept. Development of a system whose(More)
The extended continuous class-F mode RF power amplifier (PA) is presented for the first time. The introduction and experimental validation of this novel PA mode demonstrates a new design space over a wide band of frequencies. This paper will show that high output power and drain efficiency, equivalent to the class-F mode, can be maintained by varying the(More)
