Abstract: It so happens that microcontrollers tend to get heated by immense temperature effects due to environmental changes and disturbances. Many microcontrollers have thermal temperatures ranging from 10 °C to 50 °C. In this study, design and thermal analysis of microcontroller are presented where systems operate on ARDUINO microcontroller. Microcontrollers are used for automation and robotics applications. Various industrial applications can use this microcontroller in the future by using IoT principles. Hence, there is a need for thermal analysis of the microcontroller. Arduino UNO is taken for study. The effect of various factors such as thickness and length of PCB were studied. Throughout the study, it was observed that there is a 50-60% achievement in heat dissipation with the modified microcontroller.
