摘要:<正>This paper discusses the design of monolithic RF broadband Class E SiGe power amplifiers(PAs) that are highly efficient and linear.Load-pull measurement data on IBM 7HP SiGe power devices have been made at 900MHz and 2.4GHz and monolithic class E PAs have been designed using these devices to achieve highest power-added-efficiency(PAE) at these frequencies.It is found that high PAE can be achieved for monolithic single-stage Class E PAs designed using high-breakdown SiGe transistors at~65%(900MHz) and~40%(2.4GHz), respectively,which are roughly~10%lower than the device’s maximum PAE values obtained by load-pull tests under optimal off-chip matching conditions.We have also demonstrated that monolithic SiGe class E PAs can be successfully linearized using an open-loop envelope tracking(ET) technique as their output spectra pass the stringent EDGE transmit mask with margins, achieving overall PAE of 44.4%for the linearized PA system that surpasses the <30%PAE with commercially available GaAs Class AB PAs for EDGE applications. These promising results indicate the feasibility of realizing true single-chip wireless transceivers with on-chip RF SiGe PAs for spectrally-efficient non-constant-envelope modulation schemes.
