Comprehensive Analysis of Process Variability on AlGaN/GaN HEMTs through TCAD Simulations

 

AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) have shown outstanding improvements in performance and reliability, becoming the leading option for power applications in the 1-40 GHz range. However, the presence of traps and defects in the hetero-structure are strongly correlated to the tolerance of the fabrication process. New powerful models designed to overcome limitations associated with the Process Variability (PV) may be part of the exploitation outcome. This work describes a methodology useful to characterize the effects of PV on AlGaN/GaN HEMTs performance, by deriving Process Compact Model (PCM) from systematic TCAD simulations. The device under examination is an Al0.26Ga0.74N/GaN HEMT and the selected critical process parameters are: molar fraction of the first AlGaN layer, AlGaN layer thickness, source-gate and drain-gate distance, field plate extension, gate height and width, recessed effect under the gate contact.
