A Technique for Device Stress Relief in CMOS Class-E RF Power Amplifiers


Class-E power amplifiers are widely used especially for constant envelope modulation applications due to their high efficiency even for switching signals with slow rise/fall edges. However, they have been rarely used in CMOS process for very high power levels, resulting from their intrinsic poorer power output capability. In this paper, we propose a unique… (More)
