Abstract

We utilize a 3D full-band Cellular Monte Car- lo (CMC) device simulator to model ultrashort gate length pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility transistors (p-HEMTs). We present the static dc device characteristics and rf response for gate lengths ranging from 10 nm to 50 nm. Preliminary passive results using 3D full-wave Maxwell solver are also presented to illustrate the usefulness of and insight that a future coupled full-band/full-wave simulator will provide in more accurately, modeling the high frequency performance of p-HEMTs.
