  • Patent number: 10505031
    Abstract: A high current density, low contact resistance contact for wide bandgap (WBG) or ultra-wide bandgap materials (UWBG) is disclosed. The contact is lithographically formed so that a total perimeter length of the contact structure is at least twice the length of the side of a contact pad closest to the gate in a high electron mobility transistor (HEMT). The contact structure may take the form of a plurality of columns having various cross-sectional shapes, or may take the form of a convoluted geometrical shape, such as a comb-like, serpentine, or spiral shape. The depth of the contact structure permits direct contact with the two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) in the HEMT by the perimeter of the contact structure. The contact structure is formed of at least one metal layer, at least one doped material regrown layer, or at least one implanted region. The contact structure may be applied to other WBG and UWBG devices.

  • Patent number: 9647310
    Abstract: A microwave structure having an input section for receiving both a common mode signal and a CPW differential mode signal; an output section; and a CPW transmission line, having a center conductor disposed between a pair of coplanar ground plane conductors, connected between the input section and the output section. The conductors of the CPW transmission line are configured to provide the common mode signal a different attenuation in passing to the output section than the CPW transmission line provides to the differential mode signal passing between the input section and the output section.

  • Patent number: 9484609
    Abstract: A transmission line structure having a pair of separated coplanar waveguide transmissions line section. A coupling circuit is coupled between the pair of coplanar waveguide transmissions line sections, the coupling circuit suppresses common mode signals therein and passes, substantially unsuppressed, differential mode signal transmission between the pair of coplanar waveguide transmissions line sections.

  • Patent number: 9419125
    Abstract: A semiconductor structure having a Group III-N buffer layer and a Group III-N barrier layer in direct contact to form a junction between the Group III-V buffer layer the Group III-N barrier layer producing a two dimensional electron gas (2DEG) channel, the Group III-N barrier layer having a varying dopant concentration. The lower region of the Group III-N barrier layer closest to the junction is void of intentionally introduced dopant and a region above the lower region having intentionally introduced, predetermined dopant with a predetermined doping concentration above 1×1017 atoms per cm3.

  • Patent number: 9379228
    Abstract: A heterojunction semiconductor field effect transistor HFET having a pair of layers of different semiconductor materials forming a quantum well within the structure to support the 2DEG. Source, drain and gate electrodes are disposed above the channel. The HFET has a predetermined transconductance. A transconductance control electrode varies an electric field within the structure under the channel to vary the shape of the quantum well and thereby the transconductance of the FET in accordance with a variable control signal fed to the transconductance control electrode.
