In the Starting era of electronics which is the years before 1940s, electron tube was used in some of the electronic systems, such as radio and television. These electronic systems did not have the capacity to give high performance due to some limitations. The year 1947 marked an identification of new technology, during which scientists called Bardeen and Brattain innovate a transistor which uses a portion of germanium with some wires attached to it. After the invention of transistor it brought many changes in the electronic world and in every day activity in human’s life with the help of its specifications such as automation, control and communication equipment.

Schottky's thought was used by Mead in 1966 for the manufacture of MESFET and finally it was created by Hooper in 1967 utilizing a Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) epitaxial layer on semi-protecting GaAs substrate..
Electrons flow from the source to the drain through a channel. The channel is characterized by doping the epitaxial layer developed on semiconductor and offers great conduction. The stream of electrons in the channel is regulated by a Schottky barrier gate. The primary preferences of a MESFET contrasted with its partners are:
o High electron velocity inside the channel.
o Shorter transit time leading to faster response.
o Fabrication of active layer on semi-insulating GaAs substrates to decrease the parasitic Capacitances resulting in high switching speed.
o Majority carrier for channel conductance.
o Extremely low noise.
The most important point for the MESFET is the higher convenient of the carriers in the channel as differs with the MOSFET. Since the carriers spotted in the reversal layer of a MOSFET have a Wave capacity, which amplifies into the oxide, their versatility - likewise alluded to as surface portability is not exactly 50% of the versatility of mass material. As the depletion region differentiates the electrons from the surface their versatility is near that of mass material. The higher versatility prompts a higher current, transconductance and travel recurrence of the mechanism .The drawback of the MESFET structure is the vicinity of the Schottky metal gate. It restrains the forward bias voltage on the gate to the turn-on voltage of the Schottky diode. This turn-on voltage is normally 0.7 V for GaAs Schottky diodes. The limit voltage consequently must be lower than this turn-on voltage. Thus it is more troublesome to create circuits holding a substantial number of enhancement modes MESFET .
Due to its high transit frequency MESFET makes an important role for designing microwave Circuits . As the benefit of the MESFET is to provide a prevalent microwave amplifier or circuit, the constraint by the diode turn-on is effortlessly endured . Normally depletion mode mechanisms are utilized since they furnish a bigger current and bigger transconductance and the circuits hold just a couple of transistors, so threshold control is not a constraining variable. The covered channel additionally yields an improved noise execution and release of electrons into and from surface states and absconds is eradicated . A schematic picture of MESFET chip is exhibited in Figure 1.
