Abstract

This paper presents a design and implementation of a Power Amplifier for GSM Transmitters using a high efficiency class-F type. A typical class-F circuit has been designed, simulated and implemented using GaAs pHEMT transistor at a frequency of 900MHz. The proposed design achieves 95.5% of theoretical Power Added Efficiency and 28.9dBm output power. To validate the designed circuit, experimental work is also conducted. Good agreement is achieved.
