High-performance AlGaAs/GaAs selectively doped heterojunction transistors (SDHTs) and 19-stage oscillators fabricated on silicon substrates are discussed. Epitaxial layers of AlGaAs/GaAs were grown by MBE on Si substrates. The mobility of two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) in the SDHTs was as high as 53000 cm/sup 2//V-s at 77 K for a sheet charge density of 10*1/sup 12/ cm/sup -2/. For 1- mu m-gate-length devices, maximum transconductances of 220 and 364 mS/mm were measured at 300 and 77 K, respectively, for the SDHTs. A minimum propagation delay time of 27 ps/stage at room temperature was obtained for a 19-stage direct-coupled FET logic ring oscillator with a power dissipation of 1.1 mW/stage. The propagation delay time was reduced to 17.6 ps/stage at 77 K. From microwave S-parameter measurements at 300 K, current gain and power gain cutoff frequencies of 15 and 22 GHz, respectively, were measured. These results are comparable to those obtained for SDHT technology on GaAs substrates.<>
