It is shown that, from the point of view of the behavior of the charge and position of the Two-Dimensional Electron Gas (2-DEG) as a function of gate-source and drain-source voltages, the complex High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) can be regarded as a simple Buried-Channel (BC) MOSFET. Thus, the characteristics of a HEMT, namely channel charge and capacitance/transconductance as a function of gate voltage below and above threshold are akin those of a BC MOSFET. Hence, there are discrepancies in the conventional Surface Channel MOSFET-like approach to HEMT modeling. Existing simple BC MOSFET dc and ac models can be used for on-paper analysis and computer aided simulation of HEMT devices and circuits, if the HEMT is represented by an equivalent BC MOSFET as derived in this paper. The new representation can be useful for modeling of short-channel HEMT phenomena
