1. A transmitter comprising:

  • a transformer adapted to transform a differential radio frequency (RF) signal to a single-ended RF signal;

    a transformer tuning circuit adapted to tune the transformer to permit the transmitter to transmit the single-ended RF signal in one of a first frequency band and a second frequency band, different from the first frequency band;

    at least one amplifier coupled to the transformer and operable over both the first and second frequency bands; and

    at least one switch coupled to an output of the at least one amplifier and adapted to connect the single-ended RF signal to one of a first transmit path and a second transmit path, the transformer, the at least one switch, and the at least one amplifier formed on a common integrated circuit.
