EE3113_L19 2 RF Transistors • BJT: low noise, linear power amplification, power applications (bipolar operation) • GaAs FET: very low noise, low power (monopolar operation) • HEMT (High electron mobility transistor): very high frequency (f > 20 GHz) (electron gas)

EE3113_L19 3 • Major issue when dealing with RF transistors: NOISE – shot noise in emitter-base – shot noise in collector system – thermal noise in base resistance • How to reduce noise – minimize current flow across pn-junction – minimize resistance • Solution – Finger structure of base, emitter configuration
