Abstract

A new topology of power amplifier (PA) is developed in 0.18 \mum CMOS for the Bluetooth dual-mode long range applications. To meet the high POUT with linearity requirement, the proposed PA utilizes a built-in pre-distortion linearizer to improve the output 1 dB(OPldB) gain compression power while maintaining high power added efficiency (PAE). The circuit achieves measured 25.1 dBmOPldB, 25.8dBm PSAT, and 34.7 dB gain with 36 % peak PAE at 4.2 V.
