## heat dissipated in mosfet and required copper

Crrs @ 24V doesn't give the effectiv capacitance, due to non-linear characteristic. You better use plateau charge from Qg graph. Expectable rise/fall time is about 100 ns according to my calculation, switching loss about 0.5 W, still moderate. junction-to-ambient thermal resistance of 62 K/W demands for heat sink, e.g. a small PCB mounted type

## Calculation of Potting compound thermal resistance

Hi Could someone please help me with a problem. I have a PCB that fits in an ABS box and is to be completely potted, top and bottom. I am investigating device failure modes, as I need to ensure that the outside surface temperature does not reach 135C. I've worked out that one SOT23 device may reach a junction temperature of 150C, under fault

## Recommend heat sinks for 2SC1969 BJT

Max junction temperature = 150*C, use 120 for safety. Tambient = 40 *C, so you have to dissipate 10 Watts across a temperature of 110*C. The thermal resistance of the junction to case is 6.5*C/W, So the case of the transistor will be at 65*C less then the max, i.e. 120- 65 = 55*C. So the heatsink will have to dissipate 10W with a temperature (...)

## [moved] Can someone explain this Voltage Regulator

The junction-to-ambient (j-a) thermal resistance figure you cited is for a device that relies on its own body surface to dissipate heat to the surrounding air. The small body is rather inefficient for the job. Any device that has to dissipate appreciable power is supposed to be mounted on a heatsink. Depending on the power level, the heatsink may b

## Thermal Resistance Problem

based on the package type( like TO-220 etc) ,you can refer the package thermal resistance.

## Measure/Estimate Heat Sink Thermal Specification...DIY stylish.

thermal resistance is most often a linear parameter in Deg 'C/Watt and thus superposition applies. The analogy is Ohm's Law so each conductor boundary must be itemized so that the resistance can be quantified as a thermal resistance like Rja=Rjc+Rca for junction case and ambient. Variables which affect this are naturally surface area, (...)

## What does junction mean in junction to ambient thermal resistance?

You could ask "which junction?"; often the power dissipation is localized, not uniform, and die-scale calculations from uniform heating are not accurate or useful in predicting reliability or electrical effects of thermal rise at the hot spot. While a power device of the simplest sort may have only one, two junctions closely coupled, ICs (...)

## Cooling fans inside totally enclosed SMPS enclosure?

Enclosed cases are always critical thermal designs. Apart from having to use a large fan to ensure equal distribution of air flow through the greatest possible internal surface of the cabinet, it may also be necessary an additional small fan over the hottest components in order to prevent the junction temperature exceeds the specified limit.

## MOSFET Transistor heatsink

Work out how much power the transistor is going to dissipate. Look at the data sheet and find out the thermal resistance between the junction and case. This will be in the form of degrees C per watt. So multiply the power and thermal resistance together. This then gives a figure of how much hotter the junction will be then (...)

## What is junction temperature for UV LED forward voltage measurement?

They most likely test everything in 0.1mS to prevent zero Tj thermal rise. 100ms is too long for this low mass 1sq mm part. When they say Ta, they also mean Tj. Thus 10 repetitive measurements could be made with 0.1% duty cycle in 1 second. But it is up to them if they want to measure 1, 2 or 10 or more times. I just read that the [URL="http:

## Potting a 510W LED driver PCB to improve thermal performance?

So where is the thermal performance issue?

## Finding the maximum watt and temperature of regulator

All 78xx regulators has an internal thermal shutdown if the temperature gets too high. This is an emergency shutdown, and acts as a safety measure. The thermal resistance from junction to air is around 60 C/W, so it means that you can have less than 1.5W disipation from a chip with no cooling. For an output of 8V from a 24V supply you (...)

## Heat Sink for BTA24 Triac????

Yes. On-state voltage is about 1V, power disspation 3.5W, thermal resistance junction-to-ambient 60K/W => Δt 210 K

## Heat sink maximum temperature for RF Power amplifer.

Heasink temperature is not the concern.Instead, junction temperature should be considered. By doing a backward calculation, you can find the junction temperature if you know thermal resistances of Heatsink to Package (including insulator,mounting plastics,other mechanical parts etc),Package to Die,Die to junction. The (...)

## thermal resistance _ junction to ambient

Both thermal resistances are in series, i.e. have to be added.

## Safety concerns with AC on a PCB

is the average gate power dissipation what determines how many W it can handle? Not at all. Gate power dissipation will be small in a reasonably designed circuit. It's total power dissipation, thermal resistance, maximum triac and ambient temperature that sets the maximum current. junction to free air thermal resistance is respo

## What does the "minimum recommended pad" mean for thermal resistance?

The datasheet says: thermal Resistance junction −to −Ambient (Note 2) is 68C/W When mounted using minimum recommended pad size on FR −4 board. The package is DPAK CASE 369C−01. What does the "minimum recommended pad" mean? Does it mean I don't need to place th

## understanding high temperature currents and thermal run away in npn power transistors

I want to better understand the nature of the increase in npn collector current with increasing temperature. For Vbe held constant we know that this current approximately doubles with every 10 degree C increase in temperature. I believe there are two sources of this current increase and that they add to each other (they are in the same directio

## Insulated or none insulated Triac

The BTA series has a higher junction-case thermal resistance due to the internal isolation, but that's compensated for by mounting the device on a heatsink without an external insulator. If the load is low enough that a heatsink is not needed, then the small difference in junction-ambient thermal resistance should not matter (...)

## Will inrush PFET explode due to short term power peak dissipation

Vishay has a thermal SPICE model to calculate the dynamical junction temperature. AN609 is explaining the method They have also a thermal simulation tool, but I didn't use it yet.

## mosfet datasheet question

If the device has no heatsink and is at 25C ambient the case (and the junction) will get very hot with a very modest amount of power - look for the Tja for the thermal conductivity from junction to ambient. If you add a heatsink and make sure the CASE stays at 25C the device will be able to dissipate considerably more power. Look for Tjc. (...)

## Junction to ambient thermal resistance

Hi, In general, when we refer datasheet of dc dc converter (Linear/Switching), the junction to ambient thermal resistance is mentioned against a JEDEC standard. Let us consider JEDEC standard 51-7. It mentions Board Dimension (if package length is less than 27 mm) 76.20 mm x 114.3 mm. It also mentions the other parameters and values.

## Base Emitter Voltage Equation

That?s based on the Ebers-Moll equations. In a bipolar transistor collector current Ic in a linear mode is related to the base-emitter voltage by the Ebers-Moll equation. Bipolar junction transistor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 26mV = is the thermal voltage = kT / q (approx

## FET self-heating calculation

The thermal impedance of a small transistor (and most are small in relation to wafer thickness) is a messy thing to calculate, and that's if there are no other local heaters messing with you. It's a spreading geometry problem (at simplest) unless your transistor is wider and longer than the wafer is tall.

## How to measure IGBT Losses? Thermal Issue?

If i multiply these two (Voltage and Current) I should have watts. How does this plot of watts relate to average power, or thermal shutdown of the device? total_losses = conduction_watts*duty_cycle + switching_energy_loss*frequency temperature_rise = total_losses*thermal_resistance (junction-to-ambient) Conduction losses can be

## About the thermal resistance of MOSFET IRF520

60 K/W is the thermal resistance of a TO-220 package without any heatsink, in fact a convenient solution. but most likely not sufficient for the problem. You have to determine the dissipated power in a first step, you only mentioned current yet.

## Series Transistor Regulator

There are also thermal considerations. The junction temperature of the transistor must not be allowed to exceed the maximum rating (Usually 150 or 175 deg C for a silicon transistor.)

## SCR Itrms datasheet value verification/measurement/computation

Itrms is a power rating parameter and can't be easily verified. It's calculated by the manufacturer based on long term reliability requirements. You can at best determine the Vt versus It characteristic and the on-state power dissipation for a particular load case. If you know the thermal resistances, you can estimate the junction temperature in

## What is the derating factor in contex to IC design?

## Schottky Diode with high current

1. You can use the simulator to calculate the average power and total absorbed energy during the oparation cycle. It would be much more precise than guessing based on a number of screenshots. 2. Some manufacturers have dynamic thermal impedance diagrams, that allow to estimate the maximum junction temperature from the total absorbed energy deter

## How to calculate the Junction temperature of a diode?

The junction to case thermal resistance is the calculated thermal resistance between a junction and a thermally controlled heatsink which the case of the component is tightly connected to. This is an axial diode that radiates into the ambient, so the case temperature in this situation is the ambient (...)

## Thermal Resistance, Junction to Ambient, Effective 4 Die

I am not a beginner in electronics, but this question may be. I know what thermal resistance for a package is, but I have a question for somebody. I am looking at an IC that has 4 2n2222 transistor in it (MMPQ2222A). It is an SOIC-16 package. Now, there are two ratings for the thermal resistance: Each Die, and Effective 4 Die. The effective 4 die i

## Help on building RF switch with SMT PIN diode

It would be pretty unlikely to be able to handle 10 watts. The package style is the problem. Those package types have very poor thermal resistance. So when you try to pass 10 watts thru the chip, some of the microwave energy is dissipated in the diodes series resistance. That heat makes the junction temperature rise. When the junction (...)

## Problem with Voltage rogulator

As any other linear regulator, it dissipates a lot of heat. Think of it as being a controllable resistor added in series with your load. The package has a junction to ambient thermal resistance of 50(TO220) or 62°C (DPACK) per dissipated Watt. At 12V input and 5V output @1.5A it will dissipate more than 10W (P=(12-5) x 1.5). Please take a look at t

## MOSFET junction temperature?

Hello, I am using a MOSFET which has a junction to case thermal resistance of 1.3 degrees Centigrade per Watt. So that means that if it dissipates 1 Watt, then the junction is 1.3 degrees C higher in temperature than the case?

## SOT-23 for high currents?

Hi 4.7A is not DC current, it is pulsed signal (please refer to Note a, at page 2 of datasheet).You have to ensure the power dissipation should not exceed absolute maximum value and result in junction temperature is higher also than 150°C. Unless you dont pass these values, it should be OK. For the help of calculation of thermal management,

## power dissipation and cooling needs

In general semiconductors devices dissipates heat and if they need or not a heatsink attached to them depends on some factors. First: check in the datasheet what is the maximum temperature allowed for the junction. Second: check what are the thermal resistances from the junction to case and case to ambient. These figures have the unit K/W (...)

## How to build a simple white noise generator ?

Besides the idea of FvM to use the thermal noise obtained from a PN junction (and amplifying it), you should see this pseudo white noise generator using a PIC microcontroller:

## How to measure temperature of operating IC?

Unless your IC is one of those super complex ones with internal thermal diodes, you'll have to resort to thermocouples. Just place a thermocouple probe on the IC and you can measure the case temperature. From the datasheet you can compute the junction temperature, if you want that is. If you are looking for something a bit more sophisticated th
