Abstract

As microscale cooling structures are integral parts of modern chip level cooling concepts, the understanding the behaviour of different assemblies is desirable. This way novel co-design concepts can be created where the conventional IC design steps are extended with thermal design capabilities resulting in a SiP/SoP design flow. The first step in this process is to create a general formula which describes the heat transfer mechanism and can be implemented in IC CAD environments as a compact model. This paper presents an analytical study of an integrated microscale channel based cooling structure with the above motivation in mind. A closed analytical formula is given to calculate the partial thermal resistance corresponding to the heat transfer represented by the coolant which can be used in electro-thermal co-simulation. The analyses based on numerical CFD simulations and thermal transient characterizations of a realized structure are also discussed and the results are compared against the analytical ones.
