Abstract

Temperature rising which originates from self-heating, degrades the electrical characteristics, reliability and lifetime of high power GaN-HEMTs. In this paper a systematic analytical approach for thermal evaluation of microwave GaN-HEMTs is constructed through combining and scrutinizing some of the basic static thermal analysis methods in order to provide a deeper insight into the process of the channel temperature rising and self-heating with a much lower computational burden. The proposed systematic thermal analysis has been applied to two different assembly methods: conventional mounting and flip-chip mounting. Although the mathematical and empirical equations used are simple enough to save time, the effects of several phenomena and different conditions on the channel temperature have been taken into account. These include heat crowding phenomenon, the effect of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of the transistor constituent materials, transistor geometry, die-attach material properties and bump dimensions. In order to validate the accuracy of the calculations, all of the analytical analyses are followed by 3D thermal simulations in ANSYS software. The simulation results confirm the accuracy of the analytical calculations.
