Cree, CGH60015D 15W, GaN HEMT DIE (Cree Wireless)

CGH60015D
15 W, 6.0 GHz, GaN HEMT Die
Cree’s CGH60015D is a gallium nitride (GaN) High Electron Mobility Transistor
(HEMT). GaN has superior properties compared to silicon or gallium arsenide,
including higher breakdown voltage, higher saturated electron drift velocity,
and higher thermal conductivity. GaN HEMTs offer greater power density
and wider bandwidths compared to Si and GaAs transistors.

DIE Dimensions (units in microns)
Overall die size 1060 x 920 (+0/-50) microns, die thickness 100 (+/- 10) microns.
All Gate and Drain pads must be wire bonded for electrical connection.
Assembly Notes:
•
Recommended solder is AuSn (80/20) solder. Refer to Cree’s website for the Eutectic Die Bond Procedure
application note at http://www.cree.com/products/wireless_documents.asp
•
•
•
•
•
•
Vacuum collet is the preferred method of pick-up.
The backside of the die is the Source (ground) contact.
Die back side gold plating is 5 microns thick minimum.
Thermosonic ball or wedge bonding are the preferred connection methods.
Gold wire must be used for connections.
Use the die label (XX-YY) for correct orientation.
