An auto-biasing cascode class-E PA which can compensate the Vdd/AM and Vdd/PM distortion resulting from supply modulation has been proposed. The output voltage of auto-biasing control circuit is generated and varied linearly with PA’s supply voltage so that the cascode transistor is degenerated into a resistance and the PA’s nonlinear distortion can be compensated. The simulation result shows that the distortion is compensated evidently and the system co-simulation demonstrated that system EVM can be improved from -17 to -19dB. Also, the drain efficiency of the PA can be improved 15% within small supply voltage range.
