that displays superior high frequency and low noise performances. GaAs MESFETs are commonly found in RF amplifier, mixers and oscillators. The electron mobility of GaAs is five times higher than silicon. N channel MESFET are used in RF and Microwave applications. MODFET another FET type exhibits higher frequency response than MESFET due to dissimilar semiconductor material doped together. It has difference in band gap energy between dissimilar semiconductor materials and surpass frequency limit of MESFET while maintaining low noise performance and high power rating. This paper discusses about the simulation of MESFET and MODFET in its output and transfer characteristics. GaAs MESFET device with S parameter design is investigated here for the stability of the device at high frequency and discussed maximum gain, Figure of merit and stability from the proposed design. This simulation is useful to study high frequency effects of FET structure and finds extensive usage in high frequency devices. It is found that gain of lesser than desired value and lesser Figure of merit gives stability at higher frequency of operation.

Its principle is based on a heterojunction which consists of atleast two different semiconducting materials brought in to intimate contact. 1.1 Metal Semiconductor FET MESFET

1. INTRODUCTION

Field effect transistors are classified as Metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET) and High electron mobility transistor (HEMT or MODFET). Due to presence of large capacitance formed by gate electrode and the insulator in MISFET, it finds use in relatively low and medium frequency applications. MESFET and HEMT find applications up to 60 to 70 GHz and HEMT even up to 200 GHz [3]. Since our interest only on RF applications our focus is on the above FETs. Figure 1 a and b shows the MESFET operated in linear and saturation region. The MESFET differs from the common insulated gate that there is no insulator under the gate over the active switching region. This implies that the MESFET gate should, in transistor mode, be biased such that one does not have a forward conducting metal semiconductor diode instead of a reversed biased depletion zone controlling the underlying channel. HEMT is s a field effect transistor incorporating a junction between two materials with different band gaps. Volume 2, Issue 1 January - February 2013

Figure 1 b MESFET, Operation in saturation region [1] Here the transistor is operated in depletion mode; analysis is based on this mode only. The schottky contact between the semiconductor and gate builds up a channel space charge region that affects the current flow from source to drain. The space charge region is controlled by gate source voltage Vgs. Let Vd be the barrier voltage, ds Page 123

The basic structure of GaAlAs n doped semiconductor is followed by undoped GaAlAs spacer layer of the same material, an undoped GaAs layer and high resistive semiinsulating GaAs substrate.HEMT exploits the difference G0 Conductance, W width, L length in band gap energy between dissimilar semiconductor materials such as GaAlAs and GaAs in an effort to The drain source voltage increases, the space charge substantially surpass the upper frequency limit of region near drain contact also increases as well, resulting MESFET while maintaining low noise performance and non-uniform distribution of depletion region along the high power rating. The high frequency is due to channel. The drain current is obtained by integrating separation of the carrier electrons from their donor sites drain current from 0 to L and voltage up to drain source at the interface between the doped GaAlAs and undoped voltage which yield drain current as in equation 4.

Therefore Drain current at linear and saturation regions are found by increase in gate voltage channel region at one side which is bulky. This investigation of difference in drain current with and without channel modulation gives idea about operation at high frequencies. GaAs rather than silicon MESFETs provides two more significant advantages: first, the electron mobility at room temperature is more than 5 times larger, while the peak electron velocity is about twice that of silicon.

Since the current flow on the surface is very thin, the drain current at saturation region can be found by integrating over the entire surface length from 0 to L. HEMT is operated as an enhancement or depletion mode. For the depletion we require Vt0 < 0, for enhancement Vt0 >0. Here only enhancement type taken in to consideration. There is no much channel variation in HEMT.

2.1 I - V characteristics of MESFET The I-V characteristics of MESFET with Vgs = -1,-1.5,2,-2.5 and plotting drain current Id as a function of drainsource voltage Vds. Drain source voltage is in the range of 0 to 5 volts.Id vs Vds curves are plotted using matlab program.. Figure 3 shows output characteristics and Figure 4 shows transfer characteristics of MESFET. Figure 4 Transfer Charecteristics Drain current and gate source voltage of MESFET.

Large Pinch off voltage gives negative threshold voltage and called depletion type or on MESFET because negative voltage must be applied to the gate to deplete the channel fully to turn off drain current. The transconductance of the device is one of the most important indicators of the device quality for microwave and millimeter wave applications. When all other characteristics are equal, a device with high transconductance will provide greater gains and superior high frequency performance. The value of Gm greater than 2 gives usage of MESFET at higher frequencies for depletion mode operations. Figure 3 Drain characteristics of MESFET. channel length modulation is zero, when channel length modulation is taken into account the characteristics gives thick slolid curves. Therefore channel length modulation parameter is dependent on applied voltage. So as Vds is changed channel length is also changed. Additional increase in drain current beyond saturation voltage results in minor increases of drain current due to shortening of channel. At saturation the Id equation is multiplied by (1 channel pinch off occurs. Figure 4 shows plot between drain current and gate source voltage. From the above characteristics it is possible to find the parameters given in table 1. 2.2 Frequency response of MESFET The high frequency response of MESFET performance is determined by transit time of charge carriers traveling between source and drain and RC time constant of device.

2.3 I-V characteristics of High Electron Mobility Transistors. The I-V characteristics of HEMT for constant Vgs = -1, 0.75,-.5,-0.25 and 0 Volts with Id as function of drain source voltage. Assuming ND = 1018 cm-3, Vb = 0.8 v, W = -20 W.s. We found pinch off voltage and threshold voltage using 6 and 7. Threshold and pinch off voltage can be calculated as in MESFET. Vp = 1.8 V, Vto = -1.22v.Figure 5 shows the output characteristics of HEMT. The above calculations are performed by square law modeling, from which the output characteristics are drawn.

The HEMT device is identical with MESFET, but exploits the differences in bandgap energies between heterogeneous semiconductors. Here the current flow is restricted to a very narrow, quantum well layer where the charge mobility can attain twice the value of MESFET. Because of carrier separation from the donor sites, extremely high operational frequencies have been reported. The frequency of HEMT is almost 100 times fast than MESFET.

MESFET amplifier is designed using s-parameters for different frequency[5]. For exact matching condition of RF MESFET transistors F1007_pf transistor with two port condition s parameters are found from microcap software. Figure 6,7 and 8 gives N-port circuit for s parameters and ac analysis of s-parameters. 4.1 DESIGN PROCESS STEPS: Device choices are chosen based on the requirements of the power device and its output stage. The following steps are used to find the maximum output power as given in block diagram of figure 6.b.. Choose a matching topology based on frequency, bandwidth, cost goals Choose a bias circuit based on class of operation and power supply requirements. MESFETS require negative gate voltage, which must be provided with the biasing circuit. Page 126

Figure 5 Output characteristics of HEMT. The difference between figure 3 and 5 is channel length modulation which cannot be noted down in HEMT. For the calculated maximum output power, the output gain is around 15 db i.e output power is 30 times that of input power. Given DC power of 20 Watts, the power efficiency is around 72% which is high enough to operate at high frequencies. The power and gain characteristics of HEMT were investigated by using these simulations that were self consistently solved with the I-V characteristics, The results showed the expected drop in gain with frequency, Volume 2, Issue 1 January - February 2013

Maximum gain Gmax 1. Gsmax = designed and gain, stability and figure of merit are calculated. It was found that maximum stability can be achieved with gain lesser than desired gain value and lesser figure of merit gives more stability and suitable at higher frequency operation. In future we further extend our work for MODFET design and calculation of sparameters.

Figure of merit U=

U = 0.0812 Figure of merit tells about how much gain deviates from maximum gain. Nearly 8 % gain deviates. The MESFET considered here as channel with Gaussian profile and channel length of 0.2 m. The Vds is set at Vp as the device is very sensitive at the pinch off and Vgs=-0.5V. The Schottky barrier depletion region under the gate extends into the active region. It controls the cross section of the conduction channel under the gate and it modulates the channel conductivity. Figure 7 and 8 gives you s parameters of the MESFET device from which stability and deviation in gain can be observed. It is found that K > 1 stability can be achieved and hence device transconductance increases gain increases with increase in conduction in channel region of the transistor. Hence it was fond that operating point in the stable region may be at a gain less than desired value so that stability can be achieved for the given frequency of operation. Figure of merit gives idea of deviation of gain for given S parameters at higher frequencies. It can be concluded that the simulated transistors with higher stability and maximum gain used for microwave and other higher frequencies. s parameters values are taken from [6] [7]and its corresponding magnitude and phase response are plotted

5. CONCLUSION

High frequency devices like MESFET and MODFET are simulated and simple MESFET designed using S parameters. In conclusion HEMT gives higher frequency response than MESFET besides same output characteristics. A simple single stage MESFET is Volume 2, Issue 1 January - February 2013 Page 128
