RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Which point can it be chosen for the Class E Amp in IV curve - RF
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

first problem is that.
I couldn't find anything through some books.
I just know class e amps have good efficiency coz of the switching operation.
But How can I choose the operation point?
And if you know how
to handle the simulation transient in ADS, could you tell me how I can
check the siganl flow of input and outpit?
I am so desperate.

I just got
the April 2004 edition of "RF Design" magazine, and there happens to
be an article titled "Broadband Monolithic S-Band Class-E Power Amplifier
Design." I have not read the article, but it does have a chart with
load lines on it, so maybe you'll find something useful there.
The RF Design website (www.rfdesign.com) still has the March issue
up, but April should be online soon, in case you do not have access
to a hard copy.
