Here, the step-by-step design procedure for a Class E amplifier is presented. An existing Class E amplifier system is described using a systems architecture approach. The design decomposition for the case study is written so that Physical Solutions (PSs; equivalent to Design Parameters) are in terms of component parameters (such as frequency or capacitance). Coupling issues are found to arise given constraints on transistor use. The design decomposition is altered to reflect the case where an amplifier is required to power a specific load. A discussion of transistor failure enables a design procedure to be developed by observing path-dependent coupling. The design procedure is tested through the design of a real amplifier. The designed amplifier is built and its performance measured.
