Two different types of transistors are presently used in microwave applications: bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) and field-effect transistors (FETs). Commercial bipolar transistors are made, at the moment, exclusively with Silicon as the semiconductor material, while microwave FETs are mostly fabricated with a Compound semiconductor material, GaAs and AlGaAs.
