hI,


Does anybody have idea to get a start point to design thermal tracking circuit for
power amplifier?

What are the main aspects ?

thank you

For thermal tranking circuit, I can find one application note-AN1643 from Freescale website, the circuit works well, hope to help you!

For thermal spreading, You should make your signal trace and capacitors' placement symmetry. beause imbalance lead to high Rj-c values at rated high power level. hope to help you!
