1. A monolithic integrated circuit microprocessor, comprising:

  • a clock driver;

    a thermal sensor integrated adjacent the clock driver, the thermal sensor providing an output signal, said output signal being related to temperature within said microprocessor; and

    a control circuit having a control input, said control input being operatively coupled with said thermal sensor to receive said output signal, said control circuit generating a thermal detect signal in response to said output signal, said detect signal being generated when said output signal is in a predetermined relationship with a threshold.
