The HBT ledge thickness and quality is vital for
device performance and reliability. In this work we
report on a measurement technique and test structure
for monitoring the emitter passivation ledge based on the
use of TaN as a barrier between the InGaP ledge surface
and the top metal contact. The technique is suitable for
the manufacturing environment.
