Abstract

We have fabricated dual-gate AlGaN/GaN high-electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs) with a short gate on SiC substrates for use in high-power mixers and have measured their pulse modulation characteristics. A device with a T-shaped gate (0.15 μm × 200 μm) modulates a 24-GHz local (LO) signal with 0.4-ns-wide pulses. The peak output power is as high as 8.9 dBm and the bandwidth is over 2 GHz. These results indicate that this high-power mixer can directly drive an antenna and is applicable for 24-GHz ultra-wideband (UWB) applications.
