Abstract

Reliability characteristics of SiGe HBTs with 200GHz fT and 285 GHz fMAX are shown and discussed. We review the degradation from avalanche operation, and it is found that the degradation can be predicted using an empirical model that includes integrated avalanche charge and VCB. The model predicts acceptable lifetime degradation with operation up to 1.5-2X BVCEO. We also present for the first time detailed device degradation from accelerated temperature and current stress. The degradation observed compares favorably against other published silicon-based bipolar devices under comparable accelerated current stress.
