1 @T @t r2 T ¼ The Fourier equation is also known as the parabolic equation since it is a differential equation which is first order in time and second order in space. For ESD analysis, this equation is applied in regions where there is no source of thermal generation, yet whose temperature field is being influenced by heat flux or temperature gradients inside the regions or on its boundaries. For steady state processes, the partial differential equation of heat conduction simplifies to r2 T þ g k ¼0 For the case of a uniform thermal conductivity (space and time), the partial differential equation of heat conduction reduces to the Poisson equation with temperature as the field variable.

Tasca. ‘Pulse Power Modes in Semiconductors,’ IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science 1970; NS-17 (6): 364–372. 1 ELECTROTHERMAL METHODS In this chapter, mathematical methods of physics associated with the thermal diffusion equation are first introduced to develop the base for analysis of electrostatic discharge models. Mathematical and practical techniques are introduced such as Green’s functions, method of images, transform pairs, flux-potential transfer matrices, Kirchoff transformation, Boltzmann transformation, and the Duhamel principle [1–3].

These states can occur during electrical instability. Mesoplasma states are associated with irreversible damage and thermal breakdown, also known as second breakdown. Mesoplasma states are electrothermal instabilities. Mesoplasma states occur above the intrinsic temperature and at current densities 102–103 larger than microplasma states. 5 Mesoplasma Phenomena Mesoplasma phenomena can be evaluated using solutions to the heat diffusion equation, assuming a spherical source. As an example, Tasca assumed that the defect where breakdown occurred was spherical in nature [23].
