Abstract

The paper presents a novel compact model which enables the thermal analysis of microchannels consisting of continuously moving microdroplets with biologically active content inside. The compact model utilizes the switched capacitor approach to describe the convective heat transfer and as a behavioral model, it can be easily integrated into an IC-MEMS design flow. With this novel approach the temperature profile of the channel can be calculated in minutes compared to conventional numerical techniques that requires days or weeks. The model was validated by a standard CFD solver and a good match was achieved.
