Abstract

In this paper, we report a 0.15 μm pHEMT process whose gate is defined by DUV stepper. Compared with traditionally used e-beam writer, this technology features high throughput and low cost which is suitable for production of commercial MMICs (Monolithic microwave integrated circuit), especially for future 5G mm-Wave applications. After process optimization, excellent device performances such as, Pout (output power) of 553 mW/mm, Gain of 11 dB and PAE (power added efficiency) of 50% were achieved at 30 GHz. A consistent CP (chip probing) yield > 98% was achieved with a very tight control of gate process at Wavetech.
