Heat Management in Integrated Circuits: On-Chip and System-Level Monitoring and Cooling
Heat Management in Integrated Circuits: On-Chip and System-Level Monitoring and Cooling offers an essential overview on the subject of thermal monitoring and management in integrated circuits.
This book focuses on devices and materials that are intimately integrated on-chip (as opposed to in package or on-board) for the purposes of thermal monitoring and thermal management.
Heat Management in Integrated Circuits: On-Chip and System-Level Monitoring and Cooling covers devices and circuits used to convert temperature to a digital measurement, heat to electricity, and actively biased circuits that reverse thermal gradients on chips for cooling.
The scope includes fundamental operating principles that touch upon the physics of materials that are used to make sensing, harvesting and cooling devices. It also covers the circuit and system design aspects which enable successful functioning of these devices as an on-chip system. Finally, this book discusses the use of these devices and systems for thermal management, and the role they play in enabling energy-efficient and sustainable high performance computing systems.
Topics covered include;
- an overview of heat in integrated circuits and systems
- on-chip temperature sensing
- dynamic thermal management
- active cooling
- mitigating thermal events at the system-level and above.
