Full-wave rectifiers allow to halves the dipole peak voltages or currents compared to half-wave ones. These values may still be high. Still class E resonant full-wave rectifier, analyzed now when driven by a square-wave voltage generator, has the peak diode current equal to the load current. Diode voltage slopes are ideally zero after switch off, for duty factors larger than 0.5. The circuit contains two rectifier diodes but a single LC circuit. Major parasitic inductances and capacitances are included in the rectifier topology.
