Thermal Resistance Simulation For Cof Packages, Chuan Chen, Qian Wang, Xiaotian Meng, Lin Tan, Jian Wang, Chengqiang Cui, Jian Cai Oct 2020

Thermal Resistance Simulation For Cof Packages, Chuan Chen, Qian Wang, Xiaotian Meng, Lin Tan, Jian Wang, Chengqiang Cui, Jian Cai

Tsinghua Science and Technology

Chip-on-Film (CoF) is a packaging technology that mounts Integrated Circuits (IC) chips directly on a flexible substrate surface. As both power and the number of pins in such packages increase, thermal conditions become more important. In this paper, the thermal resistance of CoF packages is studied using Ansys software to perform finite-element analysis. Because of circuit complexity, two equivalent methods—a length-weighted method and an image-recognition method—are proposed in place of an accurate model to get equivalent thermal conductivity of CoF package devices. In our experiments, the simulated value of thermal resistance based on the length-weighted method was 1 ...

A Mathematical Model To Predict The Porosity Of Locally Electrodeposited Nickel Under Pulsed Voltage Conditions, Abishek Balsamy Kamaraj, Murali Sundaram Jun 2020

A Mathematical Model To Predict The Porosity Of Locally Electrodeposited Nickel Under Pulsed Voltage Conditions, Abishek Balsamy Kamaraj, Murali Sundaram

Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering Presentations And Conference Materials

Metal parts manufactured with engineered porosity offer advantages over traditional parts as they have excellent specific mechanical properties at a lower weight. This is especially of interest in the aerospace and automobile industries. Additive manufacturing allows for creating parts with computer aided design (CAD) modeled lattice structures that offer lightweight parts. However, there is a need for porous structures at the micron scale (<50 µm) which cannot be achieved in a controlled manner using traditional powder-bed based metal additive manufacturing processes. Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing (ECAM) is a novel non-thermal metal additive manufacturing process capable of producing metal 3D parts with engineered porosity at the micron scale. There is a lack of understanding of the cause of porosity and controlling the porosity generated in the parts created using this process. In this paper, the effects of the electrical parameters of deposition, such as the pulse duty cycle and pulse frequency during electrodeposition, on the porosity of the manufactured parts were mathematically modeled. The model predicts that higher frequency electrodeposition leads to more porous structures. The model developed in this study can be used to predict the process parameters needed to deposit nickel microstructures with desired levels of porosity between 20 and 55 %. These model predictions were also validated by experiments. Two mechanisms for the cause of porosity in the deposits were identified. The diffusion-limited deposition phenomenon causing a lack of availability of cations results in larger sized pores and hollow structures to form on the part. The crystal growth and the nucleation process cause micron-scale pores.

A major challenge for astronauts in long-duration space travel is combatting the hazardous spaceflight environment caused by microgravity and increased levels of ionizing radiation. Microgravity damages cellular DNA by increasing the production of harmful reactive oxygen species, while ionizing radiation damages DNA by creating double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) breaks. Cellular damage due to microgravity and radiation has been investigated using ground-based models, but most models consider microgravity and ionizing radiation alone, or asynchronously. Synchronous modeling better mimics spaceflight conditions and can be used to understand the combined effects of microgravity and ionizing radiation. However, commercially available devices to model microgravity and ...

Performance Of Lambda@Edge Vs. Lambda Environment, Sam Dotson, Wei Hao

Posters-at-the-Capitol

Abstract

The purpose of this research has been to observe how performance of the Lambda@EDGE environment compares to the base Lambda environment. This is in an effort to determine viability of the EDGE environment. 15 tests were conducted over a matter of days in each environment whereby the Fibonacci sequence was calculated to 20 terms. Performance metrics including RAM usage and response time were measured. Lambda@EDGE was determined to have not only a slightly higher average response time but also an average RAM usage of 1MB more in the aggregate tests.
