Impact Ionization Breakdown of GaAs Current Limiters
Breakdown in GaAs saturated drift velocity resistors is attributed to incipient electron-hole pair generation by electron impact. Transit of the holes leads to a non-uniform field distribution and a breakdown I-V which has been analyzed quantitatively.
