A Class-E/Fodd high power amplifier (PA) using the distributed active transformer (DAT) is demonstrated at 29MHz. The DAT combines the output power from four VDMOS push-pull pairs. The zero voltage switching (ZVS) condition is investigated and modified for the Class-E/Fodd amplifier with a non-ideal output transformer. All lumped elements including the DAT and the transistor package are modeled and optimized to achieve the ZVS condition and the high drain efficiency. The PA exhibits 2.7kW output power with 79% drain efficiency and 18dB gain at 29MHz.
