A Methodology for multi-band class E RF PA design.

Abstract : This paper presents a simple methodology for the design of a highly efficient PA in the context of multi-radio devices. This PA belongs to the radiofrequency reconfigurable part within a transmitter. Our goal is to improve the PA efficiency over the bandwidth. The method is based on the extraction of the transistor's non-linear output parameters and the optimisation of a given class E topology to an ideal impedance load. Herein, the method is illustrated by an integrated design using between 2 and 4 GHz and the results of the simulations (in terms of efficiency) agree well with the transient simulation and the S-Parameters optimisation. Considerations are given for the complete development of this design and the interest for future multi-band front end designs.
