Abstract

This work for the first time experimentally investigates the hot carrier effects on the RF characteristics (up to 30 GHz) of Si/SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBT's). Reverse base-emitter voltage stresses were applied at room temperature on BiCMOS compatible, sub-micron transistors. The main observed degradation is a decrease of S 21. It was found that this degradation is minimized (maximized) when biasing at constant collector (base) current. These results may be valuable indications also for degradations induced by ionizing radiations.
