I am learning analog/rf design and need a BJT model and a cmos model to run my circuits under Spectre(RF). Something close to IBM's sige processes is even better. The models do not have to be accurate and realistic, as I am not designing chips at this time.

You're right yolande_yj
from the designer point of view there is no much difference using conventional bipolar or sige (it's only the addition of Germanium in the base, to incease performances). For futher details you can download: Wiley sige Heterojunctio Bipolar Transistors - Ashbum available on this forum

The future is in cmos!
If it's true that some companies are having troubles with pure cmos, it's also true that the RF is always driven by baseband capabilities.
Now we are in a phase where Bicmos (mostly 0.35,0.25 and sige) is the must if you want product today. I am designing using it.

cmos process is cheaper comparable with others (GaAs, sige, etc). A cmos PA can meet in some limits the same performances with competitors.
Nobody wants to make a cmos PA with poor performance. Just cheaper.

sige is a Bicmos technology. So, you have the option to use bipolar transistors ( vertical bipolar transistors ). Usually, these BJT's have a much higher fT ( maybe an order of magnitude higher )than the cmos transistors so they can be used for higher frequencies.
I don't think there is a special consideration. You just have the option to (...)

If you compare 3 (4) terminal devices the product of current gainbandwidth and the breakdown voltage is important.
For MOS devices you get about 70-100GHz*V. sige Bipolar is about 2*3 times higher. GaAs a further factor of 1-1.5.
MOS have the additional disadvantage that the above speed is only true if the saturation voltage is very high. Tha

At mm-wave you have few plain-cmos options and
the ones you do have, are very low voltage. Stacking
costs you geometrically in area and adds losses. A
sige device would help.
GaN and GaAs suffer from not having the ability to
do logic or power management, well. If your "application"

I will allow myself to strongly disagree that the bicmos processes have scrappy bjts. I'm currently working with 0.35u sige bicmos and have to tell you that we have both vertical npn and pnp with about 40Ghz Ft for the npn.
Also, bjts we use almost everywhere on par with the cmos. Many times they prove to be very useful.
