Abstract:

This paper presents two novel Ge profiles, Graded Double Box (GDB) and Graded Step Box (GSB) for the design of a SiGe HBT for high speed applications. Main objective of this work is to optimize the performance of HBT. For the proposed profiles and their impact on the two key parameters, current gain and the speed of the transistor, has been investigated analytically. The model is subsequently used to compare its performance with that of the conventional commercially available one. Consistent with the reported results it is expected that the GDB and GSB are optimized profile designs for high speed applications of the device.
