The Thermal World According to the JEDEC JC15 Committee
On-demand Web Seminar
The discussion of standards work in thermal simulation will focus on the effort in Compact Thermal Models (CTMs). Among the areas of concern here are: Methodology for generating and validating CTMs file exchange format for importing the model into system-level tools. Supporting a migration path to assist the industry transition from a test-driven to a simulation-driven approach to thermal characterization. A brief update of ongoing work on Multi-Chip Packages will be provided.
The JEDEC JC15 Thermal Standards Committee is pursuing roadmaps for both thermal testing and thermal simulation. In the testing area, this presentation discusses the "classical" JEDEC test metrics, methods of measurement, and their proper use in thermal characterization. The discussion of standards work in thermal simulation focuses on the effort in Compact Thermal Models (CTMs).
Among the areas of concern here are:
- the methodology for generating and validating CTMs,
- the file exchange format for importing the model into system-level tools, and
- supporting a migration path to assist the industry transition from a test-driven to a simulation-driven approach to thermal characterization.
What You Will Learn
- The history and background of current thermal metrics
- Experimental details of current JEDEC thermal standards
- The work of the JEDEC JC15 committee and the status of its current activities
- Details of 2-Resistor and DELPHI Compact Thermal Model methodologies
