Abstract

In this paper, we compare and discuss the main techniques for the analysis of the dynamic performance of GaN-based transistors. The pulsed current-voltage characterization provides information on the effect of different trapping voltages on various bias points of the device under test, leading to the detection of all the possible effects, as well as to the choice of the optimal filling and measure bias conditions in other techniques. The drain current transients use one of the identified bias configurations to extract information on the deep level signature responsible for the performance variation and, thus, they can pinpoint the corresponding physical crystal lattice configuration, providing useful information to the growers on how the issue can be solved. Finally, given the complex interplay between the filling and emission time constants, the gate frequency sweeps can be used to obtain the real performance in the target operating condition.
