Abstract
The transition and saturation loss mechanisms of the two basic tuned Class-D amplifiers are studied in detail, as functions of drive waveform, signal frequency, and type of transistor. The charge control approach is used to derive optimum drive waveforms, together with approximate expressions for the various contributions to transition time that are verified experimentally.
