This paper investigates current-gain and high-frequency characteristics of double heterojunction bipolar transistors (DHBTs) with a uniform GaAsSb, compositionally graded GaAsSb, uniform InGaAsSb, or compositionally graded InGaAsSb base. DHBTs with a compositionally graded InGaAsSb base exhibit a high current gain of ∼75 and fT=504GHz. In order to boost fmax of DHBTs with a compositionally graded InGaAsSb base, a highly doped GaAsSb base contact layer is inserted. The fabricated DHBTs exhibit fT/fmax=513/637GHz and a breakdown voltage of 5.2V.
