Estimating Junction Temperature

The junction temperature can be estimated with:

Equation 22. UCC27712 qu22_slusce9.gif


  • TC is the UCC27712 case-top temperature measured with a thermocouple or some other instrument. and
  • ѰJT is the junction-to-top characterization parameter from the Thermal Information table. Importantly.

Using the junction-to-top characterization parameter (ѰJT) instead of the junction-to-case thermal resistance (RθJC) can greatly improve the accuracy of estimating the junction temperature. The majority of the power dissipation of most devices is released into the PCB through the package leads, whereas only a small percentage of the total dissipation is released through the top of the case (where thermocouple measurements are usually taken). RθJC can only be used effectively when most of the thermal energy is released through the case, such as with metal packages or a heatsink is applied to the device package. In other cases RθJC will inaccurately estimate the true junction temperature of the device. ѰJT is experimentally derived by assuming the amount of thermal energy dissipated through the top of the device will be similar in both the testing environment and the application environment. As long as the recommended layout guidelines are observed, junction temperature can be estimated accurately to within a few degrees Celsius. For more information, see the Semiconductor and IC Package Thermal Metrics application report.

Additional Considerations: In the application example schematic there are 10-kΩ resistors across the gate and source terminals of FET Q1 and Q2.  These resistors are placed across these nodes to ensure FETs Q1 and Q2 are not turned on if the UCC27712 is not in place or properly soldered to the circuit board or if UCC27712 is in an unbiased state.
