Thermal interactions set a tremendous challenge for electronic designers, and a device/system can not be considered anymore as purely electrical one, since exists a strong interaction between operating temperature and electrical operating point. As a consequence, the electronic industry has a huge necessity of electro-thermal simulation tools, which will be able to take both thermal and electrical interactions into account during a design process. The Ph. D. research activity was pursued towards the development of electro-thermal simulation tool based on commercially available software by Agilent, called Advanced Design System (ADS). The ADS is currently the electronic industry standard tool for Radio-Frequency simulation. The task has been completed successfully, and the working electro-thermal code has been created.
