The spread-spectrum wireless communications standard, IS-95/3GPP, embodies stringent specifications for linearity and adjacent-channel power ratio (ACPR), says this Maxim engineer. The power amplifier does not operate continuously in voice mode. When the phone user isn't speaking, it runs at a half rate (50 percent of the time) or at a one-eighth rate, so there's no worry about the phone's heating during voice mode. But in data mode the PA runs continuously until the data transmission is complet
