A 900 MHz differential Class-E amplifier with finite dc inductance has been designed in CMOS. The large inductance of RF choke has been replaced with a finite inductance that provides the required inductive reactance of the class E amplifier. Resonance circuit is realized without series inductor by novel use of lattice LC balun. The amplifier delivers 26.8 dBm power to a 50 O load from a 2.2 V supply. A maximum Power Added Efficiency (PAE) of 43% is achieved.
