This paper presents a 1-W, class-E power amplifier that is implemented in a 0.35-μm CMOS technology and suitable for operations up to 2 GHz. The concept of mode locking is used in the design, in which the amplifier acts as an oscillator whose output is forced to run at the input frequency. A compact off-chip microstrip balun is also proposed for output differential-to-single-ended conversion. At 2-V supply and at 1.98 GHz, the power amplifier achieves 48% power-added efficiency (41% combined with the balun)
