This course focuses on the various aspects related to thermal effects that impact the performance (accuracy, life time or process quality) of precision modules/systems. Participants will acquire theoretical and practical background on design, simulation, measurement and compensation techniques that are essential in the development of precision modules/systems that are subject to internal or external thermal loads.
