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.
