Abstract
The successful evolution of III-V optical and electronic devices from laboratory curiosities to production components has opened exciting new possibilities for vastly improved electronic and optical electronic systems. GaAs FETs and semiconductor lasers can now be commercially obtained from a number of companies in the Uniteld States and Japan. Researchers have recently demonstrated GaAs digital integrated circuits and CCDs2 that can reach speeds and low-powered dissipations that cannot be achieved with similar geometry silicon devices. The complexity (i.e., number of active components) of these circuits is rapidly growing. Laboratory GaAs circuits with ~ 100 gates have been demonstrated.
