Understanding Black's Equation

Tue Jan 11, 2011 7:14 pm

I don't know how exactly current density is related to voltage, but if I had to guess that it somehow related to current, the current would drop if the temperature of the circuit rises due to increased resistance of the circuit. But then again I don't know anything about the amount of current flowing through any of my computer chips. I also wouldn't know how to calculate current density, even if I knew how.

What I want to understand is, which value has a bigger impact on the MTTF: higher voltages, or lower temperatures?
