A Ge-Graded SiGe HBT with β > 100 and fT = 67 GHz
Abstract: By using reduced pressure chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD), the high strained, Ge-graded SiGe film growth has been realized. The film was used as a base of the HBT (Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor) developed in 0.35 μm SiGe BiCMOS process technology, and made the device give good DC characteristics (β > 100) and high-frequency performance (fT = 67 GHz), thus meeting the requirements for technical specifications in 0.35 μm SiGe BiCMOS process technology.
