An investigation of the sensitivity of embedded passive component temperatures to PCB structure (2002)
Journal Article
Stubbs, D. M., Pulko, S. H., & Wilkinson, A. J. (2002). An investigation of the sensitivity of embedded passive component temperatures to PCB structure. IEEE Transactions on Components and Packaging Technologies, 25(4), 701-707. doi:10.1109/TCAPT.2002.806175

The embedding of passive components such as resistors, capacitors and inductors within printed circuit boards (PCBs) is motivated, to a large extent, by the desire for increased miniaturization of electronic goods. However, resistors and, to a lesser... Read More
