Gallium Nitride Electronics covers advancements in III-N semiconductor-based electronics with a spotlight on high-power and high-speed RF purposes. fabric homes of III-N semiconductors and substrates; the state of the art of units and circuits, epitaxial progress, equipment know-how, modelling and characterization; and circuit examples are mentioned. The publication concludes with machine reliability points and an outline of integration and packaging. This accomplished monograph and instructional relies on greater than a decade of study on fabrics, units, and circuits. it truly is of curiosity to graduate scholars of electric engineering, conversation engineering, and physics; to fabrics, equipment, and circuit engineers in learn and undefined; and to all scientists with a common curiosity in complex electronics.
