Abstract
The microwave power performance of AlGaAs/GaAs self-aligned HBTs from 10 to 35 GHz is described. A record value of 68% power added efficiency was obtained at 10 GHz. At 18 GHz, 16.3 dB associated gain was achieved with 1.83 W/mm power density and 40% efficiency. At 35 GHz, a 15 dB small signal gain was observed. The tested HBTs have 2 micron feature size. Further improvement is expected with optimization of the HBT structure.
