In this paper, we investigate temperature dependence of breakdown voltage Vbr from -40 to 110°C in separate absorption, grading, charge, and multiplication (SAGCM) InP/InGaAs avalanche photodiodes (APD's) with a range of device parameters. The experimental data shows that Vbr is approximately a linear function of temperature, with a temperature coefficient ηexp between 0.13 and 0.16 V/°C. A physical model is developed and it demonstrates that Vbr indeed varies linearly with temperature with a temperature coefficient ηthe about 0.155 V/°C. It also explains successfully the small variation of ηexp among the APD's. Good agreement between the physical model predictions and experimental data of published InP-based APD's is also obtained. This good agreement demonstrates that the proposed physical model is appropriate to model the temperature dependent characteristics in any InP-based APD's
