Abstract : A research and development program is described for a germanium microwave low-noise amplifier transistor with a noise figure goal of 3.0 db and practical gain at 1.3 Gc. Final state-of-the-art samples averaged 3.1 db noise figure and 9.4 db gain. Technology work is described and the device design is discussed. Microwave testing is discussed and test results are given. (Author)
