This paper presents a new Class-E power amplifier (PA) with a π-matching output network. The PA is targeted at low output power wireless applications. Analytical formulae are derived to aid the PA design, characterization and optimization. A fully integrated 2.4-GHz PA for short distance communications has been implemented in 0.13 μm CMOS technology to… CONTINUE READING
