This paper tries to extend the DELPHI and PROFIT compact thermal modeling methodologies to allow complete dynamic models of device packages with compact models of cooling assemblies for the same purpose: co-simulation with a detailed board model. A few case studies are presented showing how such models can be constructed using structure functions and transient model fitting tools.
