IEEE Ottawa Section: MTT-S / AP-S Chapter presents:
Title: Characterization and Modeling of GaN HEMT Trapping Effects for Microwave Circuit Design
Date: September 2nd, 2020
Time: 11 AM (ET)

This talk will review some recent advancements achieved on the characterization and modelling of the trapping effects felt in GaN HEMT transistors, and their impact on microwave circuit design. Because of their nowadays importance, a particular attention will be payed to applications on high power amplifiers for mobile wireless infrastructure and pulsed radar applications.
For that, the talk will start by recollecting the most common model formulations adopted for the various levels of RF engineering, from the device level (physics) to the transistor (circuit) and amplifier (system) level. Starting by the Shockley-Read-Hall capture and emission processes we will be able to understand one of the fundamental signatures of trapping effects, the significantly different charge and discharging time constants, and its impact on power amplifier nonlinear distortion behavior. Then, some widely adopted approaches of the channel current transients’ characterization are addressed and the talk concludes by presenting some illustrative cases of application to RF high power amplifiers.
