Silicon germanium: fast, quiet, and powerful | EDN

The germanium in the silicon lattice provides far more benefits to a bipolar transistor than it does to the germanium-implanted channel of a strained-silicon-CMOS process. Like with the strained silicon, the mobility increases, but you derive more benefit from the change in the bandgap.
