A More Flexible Realization of The SUNRED Algorithm

By L. Pohl and V. Szekely


The high dissipation of integrated circuits means serious problems for packaging and for the design of complex electronic systems. Another important area of research and development nowadays is the integration of sensors and micromechanical systems (MEMS) with electronic circuits. The original Successive Node Reduction (SUNRED) algorithm handles well the first area but require revision for electro-thermal or mechanical fields. As a first stage the updated algorithm is able to solve thermal fields as the original, but with the application of flexible boundary connection handling, it can be much faster than the original. By using object-oriented program model the algorithm can handle non-rectangular 3D fields, and SUNRED mesh resolution is arbitrary, not have to be the power of two anymore
