Abstract A class-E power amplifier is designed using 0.25μm standard CNMOS technology at 900MHz and the reliability characteristics are studied with the load network. The reliability characteristics is improved when a finite DC-feed inductor is used instead of RF choke. At the one you halt, the PAE(Power Added Efficiency) decreases from 58.0 % to 35.7 % and output power decreases from 120mW to 74mW in power amplifier using RF choke. However, when a finite DC-feed inductor is used with load the PAE decreases from 58.5 % to 54.8 % and output power decreases from 121mW to 112mW. From the simulated results, the class-E power amplifier with a finite DC-feed inductor shows superior reliability characteristics compared to rower amplifier using RF choke inductor.
