A Class D amplifier is a switching-mode amplifier that uses two active devices driven in a way that they are alternately switched ON and OFF. The active devices form a two-pole switch that defines either a rectangular voltage or rectangular current waveform at the input of a tuned circuit that includes the load. The load circuit contains a bandor low-pass filter that removes the harmonics of the rectangular waveform and results in a sinusoidal output. In its simpler form, the load circuit can be a series or parallel resonant circuit tuned to the switching frequency; such a load circuit will be considered here. In practical applications, this circuit can be replaced by narrowband pior T-matching circuits, or by bandor low-pass filters (in wideband amplifiers).
