Abstract

Disclosed is a method of thermal management for flip-chip (C4) backside mechanical contact probing. Benefits include a way of controlling the temperature of all high-powered CPUs and chipsets for debug and design validation. This method also provides various temperatures to be selected to provide characterization data at both hot and cold temperatures.
