Abstract:To identify the limitation of DC performance of GaN HBTs, the CE IC-VCE modulation curves in AlGaN/GaN graded emitter HBTs at low temperature was studied in order to understand the limiting issues related to the low CE current gain of a GaN HBT. We have measured a CE current gain of 31.0 at 175 K and 11.3 at 295 K. The increase in collector current and CE current gain at lower temperature can be attributed to the reduced base recombination current, which is due to the carrier traps associated with defect (dislocation) centers in the base-emitter junction.
