Paper Abstract

The inherent performance advantages of GaAs have been extensively demonstrated and make it very attractive as a semiconductor material for the fabrication of high-speed digital ICs. Its high electron mobility and high peak electron drift velocity qualify GaAs as the material for developing future high-speed integrated circuits. In addition to its electron transport properties, GaAs has an intrinsic carrier concentration that is low enough to yield semi-insulating substrates, reducing device interconnect capacitance. Recent advances in processing and circuit technology have made possible the fabrication of medium-scale integration ICs with production-oriented repeatability.
