Arrhenius Lifetime Acceleration of an Integrated Circuit
Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius provided a physical justification and interpretation for his observation back in 1899. His equation can be used to model the temperature-variance of diffusion coefficients, population of crystal vacancies, creep rates, and many other thermally-induced processes/reactions. A useful generalization borne out by the Arrhenius equation is that for many common chemical reactions at room temperature, the reaction rate doubles for every 10 °C increase in temperature.
