We present Monte Carlo based calculations of transport parameters useful in the simulation of III-nitride and SiC based devices. The calculations are performed using a full band ensemble Monte Carlo model that includes numerical formulations of the phonon scattering rates and impact ionization transition rates. Calculations are made for the wurtzite and zincblende phases of GaN, the wurtzite phase of InN, and the 3C (cubic) and 4H phases of SiC. The basic transport parameters determined are saturation drift velocity, and the ionization coefficients as a function of applied electric field. Results from the various materials are finally compared.
