This presentation will focus on the development of a manufacturable Gallium Nitride  High Electron Molbility Transistor (GaN HEMT) RF power technology that is suitable for wireless infrastructure applications, specifically base transceiver stations (BTS).  This will include virtually all aspects of this technology including GaN HEMT material growth, device characterization, thermal management, circuit considerations, and, perhaps most importantly, GaN HEMT device reliability.
