Maxim无线/射频功率放大器选择指南


摘要 : 本文概括了Maxim针对蜂窝、PCS、802.11a/b/g、无绳电话以及Bluetooth等应用提供的射频(RF)功率放大器(PA)。列出了工作电压、电源电流、输出功率、封装、功效等参数的对照表,并给出了Maxim PA IC的特点。另外,还提供了一个根据市场应用选择的参考表。

更多信息: Maxim的RF功率放大器(PA)即可应用于线性调制,如QAM和QPSK,也可用于非线性调制,如:FM、FSK等。针对TDMA市场设计的PA在性能上有所改进,如:自动斜率控制可减小频谱扩散,自动斜率控制有助于保持VCC的稳定、降低VCO牵引。自动热保护功能能够根据需要临时减小输出功率,提供一个坚固、耐用的PA。针对CDMA市场推出的PA能够在城市或远郊CDMA环境下、对于大多数便携终端要求的输出功率电平提供更低的电源电流,CDMA PA在大多数时间工作在较低的输出功率状态。

对于2.4GHz ISM应用,如:802.11b WLAN、Bluetooth、HomeRF及无绳电话,Maxim可提供低成本、超小尺寸(如UCSP封装)的功率放大器,这些PA具有模拟或数字的功率控制、闭环功率控制、动态偏置控制、集成检测器等,并具有较高的效率。

以下列出了采用硅双极型工艺设计的RF功率放大器关键特性:
  1. 低成本,这一点得益于它较高的管芯产量和简单的器件制作工艺(与超外差器件相比)
  2. 小尺寸,采用UCSP封装和较少的外部元件
  3. 无需负偏置电源,不同于大多数GaAs放大器
  4. 在全温范围和负载变化范围内提供稳定的器件特性
  5. 自动斜率控制
下表列出了我们的一些功率放大器及其性能,注意,有几款PA需要在指定的性能参数和中心频点进行重新调谐,与表中参数有差异。
