Abstract
This effort will conduct a feasibility study to employ a noble method to construct a modified Class-E transmitter. The approach will utilize envelope modulation and digital pre-distortion in order to achieve high efficiency of operation while maintaining signal fidelity when employing waveforms incorporating Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation schemes.
