We present wearout reliability assessment of GaN HEMTs fabricated on SiC. Based on 3 temperature 48 V dc stress tests and using a failure criterion of 10% reduction in Idss, the 60% confidence interval on estimate of Ea was [2.00,2.94] eV and the predicted 60% confidence interval on estimate of MTTF at Tj=200 degC was [1.0 x 106, 3.0 x 107] hours. To compare the impact of dc and RF stress, additional experiments were conducted on a smaller sample set and the results indicate that the impact of dc and RF stress is not significantly different.
