Thermal data

Please provide thermal data for

EP53F8QI and EN6347QA as I need to verify that my design is below a max junction for 85C in vacuum.

Hello Tim,

 

You can calculate the junction temp based on the Theta_JA parameter and the expected PLoss.

As an example For EN6347QA: Theta_JA=30C/W (Please check the datasheet page 5)

  1. Assuming your Vin=5, Vout=3.3 and Iload=4A
  2. Eff with that input output setting will be 92% (Please check the datasheet)
  3. Pout= Vout*Iload= 13.2W
  4. Pin=Pout/eff=14.35W
  5. So PLoss= Pin-Pout=1.148W
  6. Delta_T= Theta_JA* PLoss = 35C
  7. So if we assume the ambient temp (TA)= 25
  8. Then the T_Junction = TA+ Delta_T = 60C

 

I hope that example is clear on how to calculate the expected junction temp.

 

Thanks,

Mostafa

​Hi Mostafa,

Yes I know how to calculate the junction from Theta_JA. However, this is not very helpful as I need to measurethe junction when the chip is in vacuum and here the Theta_JA is not any good. I need to know the junction to top case so I can measure the top case temperature and the calculate the junction

Hello Tim,

 

Ok, got your point.

 

Here is Theta_J-TC( junction to top case):

  1. For Ep53F8QI =47°C/W
  2. For EN6347QA = 25°C/W

 

Thanks,

Mostafa
