A method and a novel circuitry for intra- and inter-chip temperature measurement in a system in a package (SiP) module is presented. The proposed built-in self-test (BiST) system for the SiP module features a newly proposed digital frequency analyser (DFA) that can be used to efficiently discern clock period differences of up to 1 ns. The full digital interface of the DFA enables power and area efficient temperature measurements in an SiP.
