GaAs MESFET digital integrated circuits fabricated with low temperature buffer technology


Journal Article

High-performance digital integrated circuits have been fabricated for the first time with low-temperature buffer GaAs MESFET technology. The new materials structure eliminates sidegating and light sensitivity, and improves FET performance. Individual 0.2 μm gate length transistors have a gm of 600 mS/mm and an extrapolated fT of 80 GHz. Static SCFL frequency dividers fabricated in this technology exhibit a maximum clock rate of 22 GHz. © 1989 IEEE.
