Thermal Characterization of IC Packages

Thermal characterization of packaged semiconductor devices is critical for the performance and reliability of IC applications. Thermal management, thermal resistance, and temperature characterization must be taken into account to ensure product reliability. All Semiconductor ICs generate heat when power is applied to them. To maintain the device’s junction temperature below the maximum allowed, adequate heat flow from the semiconductor IC through the package to the ambient is critical.

TA-5000 Series temperature cycling are a series of high capacity thermal air stream systems that are used for temperature testing, fast thermal cycling and device temperature characterization of components, hybrids, modules, PCBs, and other electronic and non-electronic assemblies at precise temperatures from -100°C to +225°C

Operating Temperature Test Range of IC – Thermal Cycling – Accelerated Life Testing  – Thermal Characterization  – Semiconductor Testing  – Semiconductor Reliability Testing

Thermal Cycling Tests are used to to evaluate and predict Fatigue Life of Semiconductor Devices. These thermal cycle tests are repeated, cycling from high temperature testing ranges to a low temperature testing ranges to accurately predict the fatigue life cycle of a device through heat stress and failure analysis. 

ThermalAir thermal cycling test systems perform at the the mil-spec thermal testing range of -55°C to +125°C (actual test range -100°C to +300°C), with fast thermal cycling test capabilities in just seconds. Control temperature transition times, set ramp, soak, and cycle with a touch.

This is why the MPI Thermal TA-5000 Series ThermalAir Thermal Cycle Test Systems are used for accurate temperature testing and are an integral part of the semiconductor testing, manufacturing, and IC packaging process.
