  • Abstract This thesis studies two categories of power amplifiers which are fully integrated silicon-based power amplifiers using power-combing transformer technique and broadband Class-E power amplifiers. Two Class-E amplifiers were studied in this thesis. The first CMOS broadband Class-E power amplifier was designed by using a negative capacitance to compensate the reactance at the output. The second pHEMT broadband Class-E power amplifier was fulfilled by using dual resonant reactance compensation technique.
    The measured results are summarized as follow, the CMOS power amplifier using power-combing transformer technique achieves a power gain of 14.3 dB, an output power at 1-dB gain compression point (P1dB) of 20.2 dBm, a saturation output power (Psat) of 25.3 dBm and a power-added efficiency (PAE) of 24.2 %. The CMOS broadband Class-E power amplifier using negative capacitance compensation technique achieves a bandwidth of 1.6 - 3.4 GHz, a power gain of 8.9 to 12.5 dB, a P1dB of 14.8 to 18.3 dBm, a Psat of 18.4 to 22.5 dBm and a PAE of 14.4 to 33.7 %. The pHEMT broadband Class-E power amplifier achieves a bandwidth of 4.5 - 6 GHz, a power gain of 9.7 to 13.3 dB, a P1dB of 17 to 19.1 dBm, a Psat of 18.5 to 20.8 dBm and a PAE of 37.2 to 50.8 %.
