System specifications for digital cordless tele- phones require that some form of transmitter burst mask control be implemented to limit out-of-band spurious emissions. For systems that employ constant-envelope modulation schemes such as FSK, GMSK, and GFSK, the burst mask control is easily implemented by ramping the positive voltage sup- ply of the power amplifier in a controlled manner with a discrete power MOSFET.
