Comparison of Finite-Difference and SPICE Tools for Thermal Modeling of the Effects of Nonuniform Power Generation in High-Power CPUs

This paper describes a thermal study of junction temperature variation across the surface of a large CPU resulting from nonuniform power generation. Results from Flotherm finite-difference thermal analysis software were compared to results from a SPICE simulation. Both simulations provided results close to measured values. Each tool offered strengths and benefits in different areas.
