Including electrothermal effects in electronics design with connected FANTASTIC BCI-ROMs
Reading time: 13 minutes
The coupling of thermophysical properties, power dissipation, and temperature are difficult to consider early in the design process. To address these issues, accurate thermal capabilities must be introduced early in design areas. To bridge this divide, this work illustrates how to leverage the FANTASTIC reduced order model (ROM) extraction methodology to convert 3D thermal simulation models into BCI-ROMs in the VHDL-AMS format and then connect them to form accurate electrothermal circuits using 1D tools.
