Due to the precise lithography and highly pure silicon used in IC technology, thermal-diffusivity (TD) temperature sensors can achieve high accuracy without the need for trimming. TD sensors employ electrothermal filters (ETFs) to measure the thermal diffusivity of silicon, i.e. the rate at which heat diffuses through silicon, which is a well...

The goal of this thesis is to identify under which boundary conditions<br/>there is a business opportunity for an innovative electric thermal energy storage, with regards to the future electricity and heat markets. To meet this target, a novel optimization model has been developed as the main tool for the analysis of the storage and its...

Photonic packaging, which includes high-precision assembly of photonic sub-systems, is currently a bottleneck in the development of commercially-available integrated photonic products. In the pursuit of a fully-automated, high-precision, and cost-effective photonic alignment scheme for two multi-channel photonic chips, this paper explores...

Van Vroonhoven, C.P.L. (author)
This thesis describes the theory, design and implementation of a new class of integrated temperature sensors, based on heat diffusion. In such sensors, temperature is sensed by measuring the time it takes for heat to diffuse through silicon. An on-chip thermal delay can be determined by geometry and the thermal diffusivity of silicon, and since...

In recent years, a lot of research has been devoted to the realization of accurate integrated frequency references. A thermal-diffusivity-based (TD) frequency reference provides an alternative method of on-chip frequency generation in standard CMOS technology. A frequency-locked loop locks the output frequency of an oscillator to the accurate...

La Spina, L. (author)
Nowadays, electrothermal effects (ET) are posing fundamental issues in nearly all branches of micro- and nano-electronics. Due to either a high power dissipation level or to the aggressive electrical isolation schemes adopted to increase the speed, both high and low power devices are affected by ET effects that limit their reliability and cause...

This paper describes the design of a CMOS temperature-to-digital converter (TDC). It operates by measuring the temperature-dependent phase shift of an electrothermal filter (ETF). Compared to previous work, this TDC employs an ETF whose layout has been optimized to minimize the thermal phase spread caused by lithographic inaccuracy. To minimize...

In this thesis, research is focused on the investigation of electrothermal effects in high-speed silicon transistors. At high current levels the power dissipation in these devices can lead to heating of both the device itself and the adjacent devices. In advanced transistors these effects are becoming so pronounced that they are threatening to...
