This paper discusses the impact of transistor performance and operating frequency on the design of monolithic highly efficient RF SiGe power amplifiers (PAs) using on-chip lump-element passives and/or bondwires to approximate the class E switching conditions. Single-stage SiGe PAs were designed and fabricated using both high-breakdown and high- fT devices targeting for the highest power-added-efficiency (PAE). The PAs designed using high-breakdown devices with on-chip tank inductors exhibit… CONTINUE READING
