Automated Generation of Netlists from Electrothermal Field Models
The equivalence between field and circuit models is shown and formalised. Accordingly, an algorithm for the automated generation of circuit netlists out of field models is presented. Such netlists can be used by standard circuit simulators. The field-to-netlist extraction is organised for coupled electrothermal field models. The resulting circuit model is an exact representation of the semi-discrete field model. A 3D electrothermal field model of a microelectronic chip package serves as an illustration of the overall procedure.
