Electronic components thermal regimes investigation by IR thermography
Software-hardware subsystem for IR temperature control and measurement has been developed for the different types of electronic components: semiconductor devices, chips, PCBs, units. IR measuring part includes: Flir ThermoVision A40 infrared camera with 17 mkm macro lens, Quantum Focus Instruments Corp InfraScope, precision positioning system and set of thermocouples. Software part for IR data processing includes two standard tools: ThermaCAM Researcher, NEC San-ei Image Processor and several original software tools for extension of the subsystem abilities. The examples of thermal management for semiconductor devices, chips, PCBs and units are presented.
