A discussion is presented of fabrication technologies for manufacturing GaAs devices. Advantages and drawbacks of heterojunction devices are outlined. Areas of concern in GaAs production lines are also examined. The discussion covers the depletion-mode metal-semiconductor field-effect transistor (D-MESFET), the enhancement-mode MESFET (E-MESFET), and the high-electron-mobility transistor (HEMT).
