Abstract

Selfheating and thermal coupling effects are the origin of the performance limitation of amplifiers with power HBTs. It is shown that an uneven tem­perature distribution in individual emitter fingers and between the fingers is responsible for the limitation. A design method is proposed, which improves the temper­ature drain and the device reliability.
