The suitability of the compact model HICUM for modeling III-V HBTs is evaluated. For this purpose, a complete parameter extraction for HICUM/L0 is performed using single-transistor extraction routines. The suitability of some of these methods is discussed and the best available ones are identified. Model results are presented and compared with measurements. Good agreement is obtained demonstrating the fundamental suitability of HICUM for InP DHBTs and supporting the deployment of this technology.
