    Abstract

    Class E switching-mode RF power amplifiers offer high efficiency (consequently low power dissipation, low junction temperature and high reliability) and low sensitivity to component tolerances, including transistor characteristics (consequently manufacturing reproducibility). Circuit operation is well-defined and predictable; measured performance agrees with design calculations to within measurement error.
