PHA-1+: TD-SCDMA Performance vs. Output Power

TD-SCDMA Base Station MMIC Amplifier

Mini-Circuits PHA-1+ Ultra High Dynamic Range MMIC Amplifier is designed specifically for applications which require extremely linear performance, particularly wideband, advanced digital communications systems such as TD-SCDMA which require excellent ACLR suppression and low EVM.

The E-PHEMT based PHA-1+ provides typically +42 dBm OIP3 which translates to extremely linear performance in multi-carrier and complex signal environments such as TD-SCDMA supporting ACLR_1 Measurements of better than -60 dBc at +10 dBm output and EVM of 0.57% (rms) and 2.95% (pk) at the same power.
