The parasitic base-collector capacitance (C/sub BC/) in InP/InGaAs heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) has been reduced using a novel double polyimide planarization process which avoids damage of the extrinsic base layer. The extrinsic base metal outside the base-collector mesa is placed on the polyimide by polyimide coating and etch-back to the base layer. We obtained f/sub T/ of 81 GHz and f/sub MAX/ of 103 GHz with a 2/spl times/10 /spl mu/m emitter. Performance comparison between two devices with the same area of 2/spl times/2 /spl mu/m but with different base-collector mesa area showed 56% reduction of C/sub BC/ and 35% increase of f/sub T/ and f/sub MAX/.
