Manufacture: Maxim Integrated Products
Datasheet: Download this application note
The main objective of this application note is to provide the overall performance summary of the MAX2242 in non-linear operation. A detailed optimization procedure of the MAX2242 is provided to assist the power amplifier (PA) designer in adapting the PA from Class A biasing (for linear operation) into Class A/B biasing (saturated mode). This note is a useful design tool for PA engineers in applying the MAX2242 to achieve design goals in cordless phone applications with the highest possible performance and lowest possible bill of materials (BOM) cost.
