Thermal Characteristics of GaN Power Transistors

Performance and reliability of Gallium Nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) devices highly depend on the operating temperature. This Application note is to review the basis of thermal resistance figures and to specifically define the measurement and modeling use to derive thermal resistance and explain the basis for the figure. Furthermore, it will highlight thermal resistance connections to data sheet maximum channel temperature and reliability predictions.
