The properties of NPN and PNP InP HBTs are reviewed and complementary HBT amplifiers built with this technology are explored. Complementary amplifiers such as those presented here manifest reduced harmonic distortion and could lead to improved wireless communication systems. The high efficiency push-pull amplifiers increase battery life, which is critical for hand-held systems. InP-based HBT technology offers distinct advantages over other semiconductor device and circuit approaches for wireless systems and the key merits of this technology are reported.
