GaN-based RF transistors offer impressive power densities, although to achieve the maximum potential offered by GaN, thermal management must be improved beyond the current GaN-on-SiC devices. By using diamond, rather than SiC substrates, transistor thermal resistance can be significantly reduced. It is important to experimentally verify thermal resistance,(More)
Thermal conductivity of the substrate affects the performance of high power RF devices. It is a dominant limiting factor in current state-of- the-art GaN HEMTs on SiC substrate. Due to high thermal conductivity, diamond substrate is an attractive alternative for GaN HEMTs. We have developed device quality GaN-on-diamond wafers using CVD diamond and(More)
