Power Amp Supports Multiple EDGE Transceivers

The RF3159 is a high-linearity, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE power amplifier designed to support multiple EDGE-based transceiver platforms and optimized for use with either direct I&Q or small-signal polar modulation. The amplifier module is fully matched for easy implementation and is housed in a 6- by 6-mm package, which is industry-leading for the linear EDGE PA market, according to RFMD.

The product's gain and linearity lineups enable handset manufacturers to optimize the transmit chain to meet varying requirements of linearity, efficiency, and output power. The module is designed to be the final amplification stage in a dual-mode GSM/GPRS/EDGE mobile transmit lineup operating in the 824-MHz to 915-MHz and the 1710-MHz to 1910-MHz bands.
