Various Class-E CMOS power amplifiers for GSM applications are presented. A stage-convertible transformer for a dual mode power amplifier is proposed to increase efficiency in the low-output power region. An integrated passive device(IPD) process is used to reduce combiner losses. A split secondary 1:2 transformer with IPD process is designed to obtain efficient and symmetric power combining. A quasi-four-pair structure of CMOS PA is also proposed to overcome the complexities of power combining.
Key words: Class E, CMOS, Power Amplifier, Power Combiner, Global System for Mobile Communication(GSM), Polar Transmitter, Transformer, Variable Load, Integrated Passive Device(IPD)
