Thermal Considerations for Surface Mount Packages
As package sizes continue to decrease, as well as the shift from through board to surface mount packaging, thermal considerations become increasingly important. Device life is halved for every 10ºC increase in temperature. Therefore, an understanding of thermal performance becomes increasingly critical. The following information is a brief overview of thermal properties, testing and data for surface mount packaging.
