In FDD cellular standards, the transmitter's out of-band noise leaks into the receive band due to the finite duplexer TX to RX isolation. If this noise is not low enough, a SAW filter is needed before the Power Amplifier to preserve the RX sensitivity. Out-of-band noise is also an important concern for coexistence of cellular transmitters with standards like GPS, WLAN and/or WiMAX on the same smart phone, a very common scenario nowadays. The SAW-less RX-band noise challenge becomes even more… CONTINUE READING
