Gain Accurate Information on the Thermal Properties of GaN
In order to gain accurate information on the thermal properties of GaN devices, a combination of measurement methods, including micro-Raman and electrical, should be used in conjunction with
thermal simulations. Raman thermography improves upon the underestimation of device peak temperature due to lateral spatial averaging associated with conventional infrared (IR) thermography measurements.

Featured White Paper: GaN Thermal Analysis for High-Performance Systems
The paper addresses TriQuint's integrated approach to thermal design that leverages modeling, empirical measurements (including micro-Raman thermography), and finite element analysis (FEA) for high performance microwave GaN HEMT devices and MMICs. This methodology is highly effective and has been empirically validated. By properly addressing FEA boundary condition assumptions and the limitations of infrared microscopy, resulting model calculations are more accurate at both the product and end application level than traditional methods based on lower power density technology.
