The influences of the mesa-sidewall effect on direct current and radio frequency (RF) performances of Ga0.51In0.49P/In0.15Ga0.85As pseudomorphic HEMT are investigated. The leakage current path and parasitic capacitance induced from mesa-sidewalls seriously affect the device characteristics, including excessive gate leakage current, the reduced breakdown voltage, the degraded RF current gain frequency and the increased sliding effect.
