The paper gives an overview of thermal measurement and modeling techniques and results for stacked and MCM structures. Results for an opto-coupler device with 4 chips mounted in a combined lateral and vertical arrangement are presented. The paper also shows how to derive junction-to-pin thermal resistances directly from transient measurement results using structure functions.
