DESIGN APPLICATION NOTE - AN-078
SXB-2089Z Amplifier Application Circuits
Abstract
Circuit Details
5)0'
V SXB-2089 is a high high linearity InGaP/
GaAs Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) MMIC designed
for operation from 5 to 2500 MHz. This application note illustrates application circuits for 450MHz (Mobile Wireless Band) &
2140MHz (UMTS Band).
RFMD will provide the detailed layout (AutoCad format) to
users wishing to use the exact same layout and substrate
material shown in the following circuits. The circuits
recommended within this application note were designed
using the following PCB material:
Introduction
The application circuits herein were designed to achieve the
optimum combination of linearity, input return loss, and
stability. All recommended components are standard values
available from well-known manufacturers. Components
specified in the bill of materials (BOM) have known
parasitics which in some cases are critical to the circuit’s
performance. Deviating from the recommended BOM may
result in a performance shift due to varying parasitics
Matching component placement is critical to each circuit’s
performance.
S im p lifie d D e v ic e S c h e m a tic w ith E S D d io d e s
Material: GETEK™ ML200C
Core thickness: 0.031”
Copper cladding: 0.5 oz both sides
Dielectric constant: 4.1 (at 1 MHz)
Dielectric loss tangent: 0.0089 (at 1 GHz)
Customers not wishing to use the exact material and
layouts shown in this application note can design their own
PCB using the critical transmission line impedances and
phase lengths shown in the BOMs and layouts.
NOTE: Many of our sample evaluation boards may come
with an additional substrate & copper layer for mechanical
stability. It has been assumed that the backside layer has
no effect on the RF performance or circuit design.
