Description We present possible solutions for the life-time thermal monitoring of microelectronic structures. In order to grab the thermal state of an encapsulated device insertion of one or more temperature sensors is proposed. A new-concept temperature sensor element is introduced: the thermal-feedback oscillator (TFO). The TFO has digital output signal and therefore is suitable for being integrated with other built-in test circuits, such as the boundary-scan. Results of the experimental realization of the TFO temperature sensor are presented 2. 1 Built-in Temperature Sensors The thermal state of microelectronic units has always been a question of great interest.
