We will first derive a physics-based, analytical single-finger heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) model which takes into account the thermal effect. Next, the model is used to calculate the three figures of merit of HBT, i.e., current gain, cut-off frequency and maximum frequency. Their variation against the collector current density under the influence of thermal effect is presented and the calculation results are discussed.
