An analytical evaluation of the distribution of the current density both along the gate finger and perpendicular to the metal/semiconductor interface in MESFET transistors is reported for the case of forward-biased gate junctions. Examples are given for two gate resistances per unit length to evidence the current crowding effect which appears near the gate pad on increasing the gate resistance.
