An analysis of the operation of a new series-L/parallel-tuned Class-E amplifier and its equivalence to the classic shunt-C/series-tuned Class-E amplifier are presented. The first reported closed form design equations for the series-L/parallel-tuned topology operating under ideal switching conditions are given, including the switch current and voltage in steady state, the circuit component values, the peak values of switch current and voltage and the power-output capability. Theoretical analysis is confirmed by numerical simulation for a 500 mW (27 dBm), 10% bandwidth, 5 V series-L/parallel-tuned, then, shunt-C/series-tuned Class-E power amplifier, operating at 2.5 GHz. Excellent agreement between theory and simulation results is achieved.
