MAX2235—Layout Optimization Techniques
The MAX2235 is a three-stage power amplifier that operates in the 800MHz to 1000MHz range and has been shown to produce up to 30dBm in GSM and ISM applications. Achieving maximum performance is not a trivial matter, and the best starting point is a good PC board layout. This application note reviews proven layout practices and helps the reader understand both the nature of the PA and rationale behind the proposed techniques.
