This paper presents the design of a novel RF power amplifier (PA) suitable for modern wireless communication systems. The PA employs switching mode class-E topology to exploit its soft-switching property to achieve high efficiency. The use of another class-E stage as a driver of power stage improves efficiency and increases the capability of circuit integration. A new output power control technique is utilized in order to control the output power of the proposed PA efficiently by using the… CONTINUE READING
