A recessed slant gate processing has been used in AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to mitigate the electric field, minimize the dispersion and increase the breakdown voltage. More than one order of magnitude of decrease in gate leakage has been observed by recessing the slant gate. For a 0.65 μm gate-length device, an extrinsic fT of 18 GHz and extrinsic fMAX of 52 GHz at a drain bias of 25 V were achieved. At 10 GHz, a state-of-the-art power density of 20.9 W/mm, with a power-added efficiency (PAE) of 40% at a drain bias of 83 V, was demonstrated.
