6a. BASIC TECHNIQUES FOR RF POWER AMPLIFICATION RF power amplifiers are commonly designated as classes A, B, C, D, E, and F [19]. All but class A employ various nonlinear, switching, and wave-shaping techniques. Classes of operation differ not in only the method of operation and efficiency, but also in their power-output capability. The power-output capability (“transistor utilization factor”) is defined as output power per transistor normalized for peak drain voltage and current of 1 V and 1 A… CONTINUE READING
