Estimating Junction Temperature

The junction temperature (TJ) of the UCC5304 can be estimated with:

Equation 1. UCC5304 eq18_slusck0.gif


  • TC is the UCC5304 case-top temperature measured with a thermocouple or some other instrument, ψJT is the junction-to-top characterization parameter from the Thermal Information table. Importantly, ψJT is developed based on JEDEC standard PCB board and it is subject to change when the PCB board layout is different. For more information, please visit application report - semiconductor and IC package thermal metrics.

Using the junction-to-top characterization parameter (ΨJT) instead of the junction-to-case thermal resistance (RΘJC) can greatly improve the accuracy of the junction temperature estimation. The majority of the thermal energy of most ICs is released into the PCB through the package leads, whereas only a small percentage of the total energy is released through the top of the case (where thermocouple measurements are usually conducted). RΘJC can only be used effectively when most of the thermal energy is released through the case, such as with metal packages or when a heatsink is applied to an IC package. In all other cases, use of RΘJC will inaccurately estimate the true junction temperature. ΨJT is experimentally derived by assuming that the amount of energy leaving through the top of the IC will be similar in both the testing environment and the application environment. As long as the recommended layout guidelines are observed, junction temperature estimates can be made accurately to within a few degrees Celsius.
