Why GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors GaN HEMTs?

Gallium Nitride HEMTs have high gain which are great as amplifiers for swiching at high speeds. HEMTs are field-effect transistors. The junction between two different band gap materials (i.e. a heterojunction) as the channel instead of a doped region (as is generally the case for a MOSFET).

HEMT transistors performance at higher frequency. They are able to operate at higher frequencies than traditional transistors.

Uses in high-frequency products inlcude:

  • cell phones
  • satellite television receivers
  • voltage converters
  • radar equipment
  • low power amplifiers
  • Other defense related systems
