In this paper we present a manufacturable InP/InGaAs SHBT technology suitable for monolithic integration of high-data- rate optical receivers. We investigated the fabricated SHBT and found that they are essentially insensitive to processing variations. The satisfactory device yield and uniform device performance in a research laboratory environment suggested the robustness of InP-based SHBT technology. Our device and circuit results augment the feasibility of InP HBT for both optoelectronic and microelectronic applications.
