This paper presents a class AB PA with an optimized load impedance for maximum output power in a standard 180 nm CMOS technology. This Amplifier shows a measured output power of 22.36 dBm at 2.4 GHz for a supply voltage of 1.8 V. It will display necessary trade offs for optimum output power and small signal gain. Simulation results show that the drain efficiency at 1 dB compression point reaches 31.41%. Additionally, using a feed forward linearization technique, P1-dB is increased to 24.05 dBm which shows 3.46 dB improvement compared to the case without linearization. Enhancement in the amplifier linearity range leads to lower adjacent channel interference and thus higher data transfer rate. © 2011 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.
