Novel n-GaN/n-AlGaN/GaN metal-insulator-semiconductor high electron mobility transistors (MIS-HEMTs) with Si3N4 film were fabricated on a semi-insulating (S.I.) SiC substrate. An n-GaN/n-AlGaN/GaN MIS-HEMT with a breakdown voltage of 400 V was obtained by using SiN/n-GaN cap structure. The single-chip GaN MIS-HEMT amplifier operated at 60 V achieves a high output power of 110 W with a linear gain of 13 dB at 2.14 GHz. This is the first report of an AlGaN/GaN MIS-HEMT with an over 100 W output… CONTINUE READING
