This paper presents the design of a high efficiency, low THD, 5.7GHz fully differential power amplifier for wireless communications in a standard 0.18mm CMOS technology. The power amplifier employs a fully differential class-E topology to achieve high power efficiency by exploiting its soft-switching property. In order to achieve high operating frequency, an injection-locked oscillator is utilized, which makes the output voltage of the power amplifier tuned at the input signal frequency.
