This short video will provide an introduction to Class E Power Amplifiers and demonstrate a superior, time saving methodology to design and practically realize a Class E RF power amplifier using first principles to build an ideal circuit and then utilizing circuit design tools to synthesize a more realistic circuit topology from the ideal case. The design process will be illustrated using a simple, internally developed open Gallium Nitride (GaN) device model and results will be also be presented for a commercially available GaN MMIC device from Cree.
