Custom thermal test vehicles
TTVs – thermal test vehicles – are prototypical devices that serve as centerpiece of experiemental package development setups. They provide heating functionality which can create configurable temperature fields throughout the whole chip and simultaneous, spatially resolved temperature measurement. That allows to simulate a real package's thermal behavior while in-situ measuring the actual package core temperatures.
The actual TTV design can be greatly individual. Starting at the die size, over heater and temperature sensor patterns and finally to the whole assembly design, the great degree of individuality is a factor that has drawn packaging departments' attention on TTVs.
