Paper Abstract

Typical thermal system performance measurements include measurements from a sensor’s digital or analog output while system performance characterizations are based upon measurements from those outputs while characterizing the performance of the display separately. This can be a improper assumption because additional signal processing could occur between the sensor test port and the display. Recent research has focused on the characterization of thermal system displays for better model fidelity. The next evolution in this research is to introduce a means for characterizing thermal system signal intensity transfer (SITF) and three dimensional noise (3DN) performance for systems that have a display as well as a known digital output. This correspondence presents an attempted means to characterize the SITF and 3DN performance for a thermal system when only using a display as the output.
