Abstract

We report in this paper the thermal effects onto the performances of high power microwave transistors. Also, thermal simulation results along with means to optimize the heat dissipation on a wafer level are discussed. Finally we present a novel active thermal management technique using micro-fluidic channels. The simple fabrication process is presented.
