The concepts of the low-conductance drain (LCD) design approach for lattice-matched InAlAs/InGaAs/InP HEMTs are demonstrated for improved device performance. The tradeoff for LCD HEMT characteristics is a tapered current gain cutoff frequency f/sub t/ under high drain-to-source bias. This behavior is, in principle, due to the fact that the LCD approach increases the effective gate length of the HEMTs in exchange for reduced peak channel electric field. Two-dimensional PISCES simulation was used to optimize the improvements while simultaneously minimizing this undesirable effect for an LCD HEMT structure.<>
