General Description
The MAX2320/MAX2321/MAX2322/MAX2324/MAX2326/ MAX2327 high-performance silicon germanium (SiGe) receiver front-end ICs set a new industry standard for low noise and high linearity at a low supply current. This family integrates a variety of unique features such as an LO frequency doubler and divider, dual low-noise amplifier (LNA) gain settings, and a low-current paging mode that extends the handset standby time. The MAX2320 family includes six ICs: four operate at both cellular and PCS frequencies, one operates at cellular frequencies, and one at PCS frequencies (see Selector Guide). Each part includes an LNA with a high input third-order intercept point (IIP3) to minimize intermodulation and cross-modulation in the presence of large interfering signals. In low-gain mode, the LNA is bypassed to provide higher cascaded IIP3 at a lower current. For paging, a low-current, high-gain mode is provided. The CDMA mixers in cellular and PCS bands have high linearity, low noise, and differential IF outputs. The FM mixer is designed for lower current and a single-ended output. All devices come in a 20-pin TSSOP-EP package with exposed paddle (EP) and are specified for the extended temperature range (-40C to +85C).

Note 1: See Tables 15 for operational mode selection. Note 2: A total of 36 devices from 3 different wafer lots are used to determine the standard deviation. The lots were selected to represent worst-case process conditions. Note 3: Operation is characterized for the frequencies specified in the conditions; for other frequencies in the band, see Tables 812 for LNA and mixer S parameters. Note 4: Guaranteed by design, characterization, and production functional test. Note 5: Guaranteed by design and characterization. Note 6: For cellular band, RF inputs are -25dBm each tone at 881MHz and 882MHz, fLO = 1091MHz. For PCS band, RF inputs are -25dBm each tone at 1960MHz and 1961MHz, fLO = 2170MHz.

Detailed Description
Low-Noise Amplifier
Within its operating bands, each device in the MAX2320 family (except the MAX2327) has three modes of LNA operation: high gain, high linearity (HGHL); high gain, low linearity (HGLL); and low gain, high linearity (LGHL). The logic inputs control the LNA mode as described in the AC Electrical Characteristics. Use HGHL mode when extra-high LNA linearity is required for cross-modulation suppression. Use HGLL mode when the transmitter is off and cross-modulation is not a concern. When the LNA changes modes, the input VSWR change is minimal. Use LGHL mode for receiving large signals and when high sensitivity is not required. The MAX2327 LNA has only an HGLL mode. Adjust the HGHL mode LNA linearity by changing R RLNA , and adjust linearity of the other modes by changing RRBIAS. control inputs increase the current in the downconverter. When the linearity requirement is not high, the current is lower.

MAX2320/21/22/24/26/27

LO Output Buffers
The BUFFEN logic input turns the open-collector LO output buffers on and off. This feature saves current if the buffers are not required.

Operational Modes
Each device has logic input pins that control the different operational modes listed in Tables 15. MAX2320/MAX2321/MAX2326 Operation The MAX2320/MAX2321/MAX2326 are dual-band, triplemode receivers that amplify and downconvert cellularand PCS-band signals. They consist of cellular and PCS LNAs; cellular digital, cellular FM, and PCS digital mixers; and cellular and PCS LO buffers. The MAX2321 has an LO frequency doubler on-chip, so a single cellularband VCO can be used for both the cellular- and PCSband mixers. Selecting the PCS path activates the LO frequency doubler. The MAX2326 has an LO divide-bytwo circuit, so a single PCS-band VCO can be used for both the cellular and PCS mixers. Selecting the cellular path activates the LO divide-by-two circuit. Three logic input pinsBAND, GAIN, and LINcontrol eight operational modes of the LNAs and mixers. The modes are summarized in Table 1.

Downconverter
The downconverters in these devices are double-balanced mixers. The PCS-band mixer and digital cellularband mixer share the same IF output ports. The cellular band FM mixer has its own IF output to feed a different filter. Adjust the downconverter linearity and current by changing RRBIAS (see Typical Operating Characteristics). When the linearity requirement is high, the mode

MAX2322 Operation The MAX2322 is a lower-cost PCS-only version that can be installed as a drop-in replacement for the dual-band versions. It consists of a PCS LNA, PCS mixer, pinselectable LO frequency doubler, and LO buffer. Logic input SHDN = V CC / GND turns on/off the entire IC except the LO buffer. The LOX2 logic input controls the LO frequency doubler. LOX2 = GND disables the doubler when using a PCS band VCO, and LOX2 = VCC activates the doubler when using a cellular-band VCO. GAIN and LIN logic inputs control the MAX2322s three operational modes, as summarized in Table 2. MAX2324 Operation The MAX2324 is a lower-cost cellular-only version that can be installed as a drop-in replacement for the dualband versions. It consists of a cellular LNA, cellular digital mixer, cellular FM mixer, and LO buffer. A SHDN logic input turns on/off the entire IC except the LO buffer. GAIN and LIN logic inputs control the MAX2324s three operational modes, as summarized in Table 3. MAX2327 Operation The MAX2327 is similar to the MAX2320 except it only features an HGLL mode, and either LO output buffer is selectable during shutdown. It consists of PCS and cellular LNAs; PCS, cellular digital, and cellular FM mixers; and PCS and cellular LO buffers. A SHDN logic input turns on/off the entire IC except the LO buffer. BAND and MODE logic inputs control the MAX2327s three operational modes, as summarized in Table 4.

Applications Information
Cascaded LNA/Mixer Performance
The LNA and mixer design aims at optimizing cascaded performance in all gain and linearity modes. In highgain, high-linearity mode, both the LNA and mixer have a low noise figure, high gain, and high linearity. The LNA has high gain to minimize the noise contribution of the mixer, thus increasing the receivers sensitivity and extra-high linearity for superior cross-modulation suppression. The HGLL mode is used when the transmitter is off and cross-modulation is not a concern. In lowgain, high-linearity mode, the received signal is strong enough that linearity is the primary concern. The LNA gain is reduced for higher system linearity. Tables 5 and 6 summarize the cascaded performance.

Layout Considerations
Keep RF signal lines as short as possible to minimize losses and radiation. Use high-Q components for the LNA input matching circuit to achieve the lowest possible noise figure. At the digital mixer outputs, keep the differential signal lines together and of equal length to ensure signal balance. For best gain and noise performance, solder the slug evenly to the board ground plane.
