The MAX2265 Is Ideal for EDGE Base-Station Pre-Driver Applications


摘要 : This application note presents measured performance data for the MAX2265 power amplifier (PA) when used for EDGE 8PSK modulation. +18.5dBm power was obtained in the 925MHz to 960MHz band. With a 5V power supply, 340mA were used to provide EVM better than 1%.

Introduction

Many GSM operators are beginning to install 2G networks to support higher data rates, addressing the expected demands of mobile-phone users. EDGE, which stands for "Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution," essentially triples the existing GSM data rate from 1-bit/symbol GMSK (gaussian minimum shift key) modulation to 3 bits/symbol 8PSK (phase shift key) while operating in the same occupied channel bandwidth.

The newly adopted modulation scheme of 8PSK requires a highly linear amplifier to minimize spectral regrowth and phase distortion. Power amplifiers for base station applications impose even more stringent requirements for its pre-driver to present a pristine signal with minimum non-linearity. As usual, the pre-driver must be electrically and thermally stable with good reliability for this application.

The MAX2265 is an excellent low-cost bipolar solution for GSM/EDGE base station down link pre-driver applications. Performance specifications are presented in this application note. Measured data indicates that the MAX2265 meets or exceeds requirements with margin.
