The low frequency noise characteristics of modern self-aligned AlGaAs/GaAs power HBT's have been studied as a function of bias, temperature, frequency, and circuit topology. The devices have a 1/fγ behavior between 10 Hz and 100 Hz with 0.78⩽γ⩽1.65. Strong deviation from 1/fγ is measured at higher frequencies due to trapping. The bias dependence of the collector noise ranged from IC1.5-IC 2.6, while that for the base noise ranges from IB 0.7-IB2.5. In all cases the collector noise is greater than the base noise. The base noise is apparently dominated by surface recombination noise and generation-recombination (G-R) noise. The collector noise is due to recombination mechanisms and G-R noise. The activation energy (Ea ) of the most significant trap is approximately 0.58 eV. The noise of the devices tested was found to be dominated by material and fabrication related mechanisms and not by fundamental mechanisms
