Abstract:

Gallium Nitride devices were studied for use in microwave and RF control applications, primarily as electronic switch elements. For the test devices studied, broadband switch cutoff frequencies in excess of 130 GHz were seen, with cutoff frequencies as high as 400 GHz possible with the next generation devices. Second order distortion intercept points of greater than 50 dBm should be achievable with current gallium nitride technologies.
