A family of class-E2 DC/DC power converters is introduced. Their analysis and design are presented and experimentally verified. The converters are composed of class-E inverters and class-E rectifiers. Zero-voltage switching (with low dv/dt) of the transistor and zero-current switching (with low di/dt ) of the rectifier diode reduce switching losses in both stages of the converters, making them especially suitable for high-frequency operation. Because of the high loaded quality factor of the resonant circuit, the range of frequency required for output-voltage regulation is as narrow as 5.46% for load resistances from a full load of 100 Ω to an open circuit. The full-load overall efficiency is 80.36% at 1 MHz. The converters can also operate at a fixed frequency if synchronous rectifiers are applied. The reduction of class-E2 converters to lower order converters is presented. Many multiresonant converter topologies are created in this way. The class-E2 converters can be utilized to build highly efficient high-power-density switching power supplies
