Overview

A complimentary seminar introducing fundamentals of thermal transient testing of semiconductor devices and packages for thermal characterization and how to enhance electronics thermal design of reliable products to achieve goals for Size, Weight, Power and Cost by combining use of test and thermal simulation.

This seminar includes demonstration of thermal transient measurement via electrical test methods using Simcenter T3STER test technology and package heat flow path analysis. Presentations will include the application of measurement to determine thermal metrics with confidence, how achieve highest accuracy in package to system level thermal simulation accuracy through model calibration, and how to use testing for failure diagnosis during thermal reliability studies and also in quality assessment.

Refreshments /Food and Beverages will be provided at each location
