A new estimation method of efficiency for class-E power amplifier operated above theoretical maximum operation frequency

Abstract

This paper describes a new estimation method of efficiency for both conventional and inverse class-E power amplifiers (PAs) operated above theoretical maximum operation frequency. The proposed method is evaluated using a 10-W RF power MOSFET at 2.45 GHz, and the measured results agree with the proposed method. For continuous-wave (CW) operation, the PA… (More)
