This paper presents a thermal model that uses a Fourier series solution to the heat equation to carry out transient 3D thermal simulation of power device packaging. The development and implementation of this physics-based method is described. The method is demonstrated on a stacked 3D multichip module. The required aspects of 3D heat conduction are captured successfully by the model. Compared with previous thermal models presented in literature, it is fast, accurate and can be easily integrated with an inverter circuit simulator to model realistic converter load cycles.
