    Power protection chips are widely used these days to protect sensitive circuitry from over-voltage and over-current stress. However, these workhorse chips are often subjected to extraordinary thermal stress themselves and need to be protected from burning up – literally.

    In the pages of SemiWiki, we are usually talking about what to do with billions of really small transistors – for a change of pace today, we’ll discuss what to do with a few really big ones. Mentor Graphics has just announced their latest MicReD platform for thermal testing of IGBTs, experiencing a resurgence (pun intended) thanks to electric vehicles. ...

    Simulation Technique for Thermally Aware 3D TSV IC Stacking-semiconductor-wafer-pizza-min-jpg

    Design starts are critical to the growth of the semiconductor industry so enabling them is a common theme on SemiWiki. One thing we have not covered in detail is multi-project wafer services (MPW) which is the equivalent of ride sharing through the initial mask and wafer process. Larger semiconductor companies already do this internally but what about the rest of the world, especially budget constrained Universities? We need their design starts too!

    Let’s ...
