At the IPC Conference in February, John Coonrod sat down with Mark Thompson, Guest Editor at I-Connect007 to talk about thermal management scenarios that have come up through various customer situations.

“A circuit is heating up more than it should, why”?

By digging into the details, John identified several scenarios and wrote about them in a paper and presented this paper at IPC.  A couple scenarios include:

  • Thermal heat being generated  not due to power going through the circuit but because a hot chip is sitting on the circuit
  • RF power heating the trace and going through the circuit
