This paper explores the design and performance of dc-dc power converters operating in the very high frequency (VHF, 30-300 MHz) range. Methods are presented for assessment and comparison of device losses in VHF operation under soft switching and soft gating conditions. These methods are applied to the development of a 2 W resonant boost converter operating at a switching frequency of 30 MHz. Design of the power stage, resonant gate drive, and control circuitry are treated in detail, and experimental results demonstrating the performance of the converter are presented.
