    In order to meet the demands from the market on cheaper, miniaturized mobile communications devices realization of RF power amplifiers in the mainstream CMOS technology is essential. In general, CMOS Power Amplifiers (PAs) require high voltage to decrease the matching network losses and for high output power whereas the mainstream CMOS technology is optimized for low voltage operation. This calls for innovative solutions to enable the design of reliable RF PAs in CMOS technology.
