Modeling the Electro-Thermal Response of Thermally Isolated Micromachined Distributed Structures

Eran Socher, Ofir Bochobza-Degani, David Elata and Yael Nemirovsky
Dept. EE, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, IL

Keywords: Electro-thermal modeling, thermal runaway, burn-out, numerical scheme

Abstract:
This work analyzes the electro-thermal behavior of thermally isolated micromachined resistive structures. A novel numerical scheme for solving the coupled electro-thermal problem is suggested. The novel scheme can capture the thermal instabilities under both voltage and current control. The model is compared with experimental data showing good agreement.
