Introduction

Many wireless infrastructure time division duplex (TDD) transmit applications require fast on/off switching of the transmitter, typically within one to five microseconds. There are several different ways to implement fast Tx on/off switching, including the use of RF switches in the signal path, or on/off switching of the supply voltage for different stages of the transmitter chain. The advantages of the latter method are low cost, very ...
