Abstract

A measurement system comprised of an ultra-low-distortion function generator, lock-in amplifier, and semiconductor parameter analyzer is used for sensitive extraction of the small-signal thermal impedance network of bipolar devices and circuits. The extraction procedure is demonstrated through measurements on several silicon-on-glass NPN test structures. Behavioral modeling of the mutual thermal coupling obtained by fitting a multi-pole rational complex function to measured data is presented.
