A Time-Domain Method for the Analysis of Thermal Impedance Response Preserving the Convolution Form
MetadataShow full item record
The study of the thermal behavior of complex packages as multichip modules (MCM’s) is usually carried out by measuring the so-called thermal impedance response, that is: the transient temperature after a power step. From the analysis of this signal, the thermal frequency response can be estimated, and consequently, compact thermal models may be extracted. We present a method to obtain an estimate of the time constant distribution underlying the observed transient. The method is based on an iterative deconvolution that produces an approximation to the time constant spectrum while preserving a convenient convolution form. This method is applied to the obtained thermal response of a microstructure as analyzed by finite element method as well as to the measured thermal response of a transistor array integrated circuit (IC) in a SMD package.

Dynamic Compact Thermal Models With Multiple Power Sources: Application to an Ultrathin Chip Stacking Technology Palacín Roca, Jordi; Salleras, Marc; Samitier, Josep; Marco, Santiago (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2005)Whereas numerical modeling using finite-element methods (FEM) can provide transient temperature distribution in the component with enough accuracy, it is of the most importance the development of compact dynamic thermal ...
Suboptimal Filtering and Nonlinear Time Scale Transformation for the Analysis of Multiexponential Decays Palacín Roca, Jordi; Marco, Santiago; Samitier, Josep (IEEE, 2001)Multiexponential decays may contain time-constants differing in several orders of magnitudes. In such cases, uniform sampling results in very long records featuring a high degree of oversampling at the final part of the ...
Marco, Santiago; Palacín Roca, Jordi; Samitier, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2001)The analysis of multiexponential decays is challenging because of their complex nature. When analyzing these signals, not only the parameters, but also the orders of the models, have to be estimated. Here, we present ...
